Really late update: bought a "Government Series II" Explorer* with a fret board made of the Rosewood the gov't had to release to Gibson after determining they'd done nothing untoward. His-to-ree.


*So, so awesome. And loud.

I'm in Nashville right now. Last time I was here, I was on my way to the Gibson factory (or, "Mecca", as I like to call it) for a tour when I heard on the radio that the Feds had raided both of their facilities in town. Closed them down for weeks. Something about how the EPA really wanted to get their hands on Gibson's wood... I dunno. Anyway, if I have time I'm going to try to get there tomorrow, provided the Feds don't bullshittedly do the same petty juvenile thing again just to piss me right the fuck off.

*long rambling pan-topical politics-based rant redacted for the good of almost everyone*

Well, except to say that I bought a Flying V with the "toasted maple" fretboard Gibson was using during the 7-odd months that the EPA had impounded their pallets of rosewood while they determined that in fact nothing illegal had gone on at all, because Gibson guitars are proudly made in America by Americans and fuck me if I'm going to let the woefully ignorant and spiteful Environmental Protectionazi Asshole squad shut down Gibson just because it's CEO didn't *redacted redacted redacted* that's why. I am proud to place a symbol of resistance like that on the Wall of Awesome.

I'm very sad today but...This made me laugh. Didn't expect to see an RIP today. Been playing the entire Lou catalog all day while watching football.
