It's true. In less than 24 hours. 43 positions from Westlake village just went home.  20+ regional managers are no more either.  Just dumped them. 'Corporate Restructuring'.  I'll bet there were quite a few old scores settled as well.   Wink

I've started building Amps and related stuff.......   100% hand wired all tube.   I've got a few completed prototypes, and man do they sound nice.

Also,  I've built a Ground loop eliminator similar to the Ebtech HumX.   

Electronics are fun stuff.....

One of my friends is an independent Gibson/Epi dealer.   He hand picks the Gibson stock in the store.   There is NO place in this part of the state that has nicer Gibson guitars than his store.

Mind you,  you aren't able to go to his shop and pick up a Gibson...   you need to ask first...  The Epi's are in reach,  but with a sign stating please ask.   It's about preventing damage to the guitars in this case.    I've never seen anyone get denied when asking to try a guitar at that shop.    They may have been asked to remove a coat... or something that could scratch the finish....    But you ask,  have a seat... and the owner takes it from the wall and tunes it for you...    No complaints with that.

Damaged/blemished guitars are a hallmark of Guitar center....

That sounds about right from my fuzzy recollection.    Nowadays, I go to the indie store...  BS with the owner for a few minutes, grab whatever I need and roll out.

I don't think GC did anything dirty here...     but I do think that Indie dealers can bend a little more relative to pricing and bundles.

Gibraltar/Kaman  stealing ideas is nothing new.   I know a maker of Cymbal mounts that were taken to a show,  and showed up as a Gibraltar product the next year.   I hate that you HAVE to be so secretive on your product.   

His Cymbal mounts are Machined here in the USA.. and are made of good aluminum.   The copies are pot metal.

Here's exactly how bad he is at playing the corporate game.  
A simple google of his name and you have access to company numbers and stats in a ****ty Prezi he obviously threw together based on the number of lousy "inspirational" quotes he included in it.
How much does he get paid to be this incompetent, I wonder?
I'd be shocked if he has a bachelor's degree.
Once, he showed up like 3 hours late for his own presentation at a regional conference, and obviously still slightly drunk.
But, hey, we all know all you need to move up at GC is a bunch of generic bro/cali/surfer speak, and a good blow hookup.

OMG, Kaz still has a job?
Here's a guy who made it up the ranks via cocaine alone.
Completely unqualified for the job, as were most (if not all) everyone who reported to him when I was there.

Not only does Kaz still have a job, he is 'Vice President of Stores.' He is in charge of running all the stores in the chain and he reports to the CEO.

You clearly knew him because you described him perfectly. Unfortunately, there were many like him and they all seem to continue to get prompted.

I hope this new CEO can recognize a clown when he sees one, but he probably wouldn't have taken the job if he could.
