It was under the table employment, and I've known them since I was 6. As much fun as the local government would have coming down on them (and they would, the owners are pretty difficult), I don't have a case to stand on and I'd feel shitty if I did. My last paycheck probably wouldn't really be worth it. Besides, now they have to get someone new to deep clean the bar, haul kegs, inventory, etc every monday, and considering it's not a very successful bar, the knowledge that that will be a difficult is comfort enough

That's super shitty, I'm sorry to hear that.

Today I made the mistake of getting baited into a debate with an "enlightened centrist" alt-right apologist. The clues were there but still I cohldn't help myself. Constantly whatabouting when asked about neo nazi murder stats.
Then 2 other members came in with the "antifa are as bad as nazis" and I had to nope out.

God that is so stupid.

Imagine that kid in X location that would love one of those guitars cause they can't afford a new one.

All things considered, this really says a lot about how much Gibson gives a shit about their guitars. I remember how they went on and on about how the guitar finishes were symbolic of the disaster that happened to their factory in Nashville, and how the swirl finish supposedly came about because of all the dyes and finishes that mixed in the flood waters.
All they really needed to do was gut the guitars and sell them for parts or give them away and that probably would've gotten them significantly better PR than this stunt. :whateva:

I don't think this guys with Gibson, but it looks like he had a hand in tearing down the Memphis Gibson factory. I wonder how they got their hands on all these?

Edit: So really, my best guess, is these somehow got to the Memphis factory for storage because Gibson Nashville thought they'd sell a lot more than they had made (or something to that effect), and after a while with needed the extra room for all their main production lines. Then, folks just forgot about it until these yahoos were there to gut the Gibson Memphis factory and found all of em. If that's the case, my guess would be that Gibson was uninformed of all this stock and either these guys decided "fuck it" and went ahead and did this, or that Gibson somehow no longer has claim over the items in it seeing how this is a few months since their lease was up.

He gave an interview where he explains that he worked for Gibson doing this stuff and it was all official. In fact, he say this stunt was done with Gibson execs/reps/whatever standing right next to him and telling people to film so that they had proof of the destruction. On his channel there's another video where they're taking finished 335's without hardware, snapping the necks off and cutting the bodies in half on a band saw. It's pretty sad.
The guy was talking about how Gibson started getting real hardcore about everything coming out of the factory being 100% perfect and that they'd destroy guitars if they got blemishes.

Based on what one encounters on 49/50 guitars at any of their dealers short of Wildwood, Gibson and I have very different definitions of "hardcore", "perfect", "blemishes" and maybe even "100%".

Why are their so many enablers of this bullshit in the world? Like not one sad fuck at Gibson said anything along the lines of "shall we maybe not just auction them off for charity"? Is Trump Gibson? In Self-Destruction We Trust. *Slashes own grinning face to "own the Libs/Fender"*

In other mild irritations, my sleeping pattern is all over the goddamn place, and I' sure I had a mini-stroke the other day. Woke up with cramp in my calf muscle and felt nauseous and dizzy to the point of almost fainting. The fuck was all that about? My body is trying to kill itself without my permission. Fuck you, body. You'll go when I tell you.

Does anybody else have days where they just want to put on Bob Marley and cry?
