Topic: Wild Rumour - Joe to rescue Gibson

So over on TGP people are going a bit crazy over Gibson filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and a few people have shared a news story that Joe might be investigating a rescue deal.

I'm sure that's not the case, but how cool would it be if he did.

Hopefully he'd revamp the range to include more vintage spec models

Re: Wild Rumour - Joe to rescue Gibson

Ummm... yeah that would be great. If JB and a group of guitar enthusiastic investors, say like Paul Allen, got together and made Gibson the standard of quality it used to be, they will need to issue a "Lazarus Burst."

Unfortunately I don't think JB can sell enough of his tweed collection or bursts to even make a dent on the 500 million of debt. We can dream...

Just hypothetically, if the creditors were willing to agree a revised repayment plan, then whoever rescued Gibson wouldn't need to have $500 million in the bank.

The AP blurbs in today's papers in my area mentioned some Creditors are receiving a piece of ownership ... and Gibson receiving $150 million'ish to keep going during restructuring.

Post this in the General Topics please, there's two pages worth of speculation! So this is a duplicate thread.

Re: Wild Rumour - Joe to rescue Gibson

Its obviously a dig at Joe because of his over the top buy all historic  guitar guitar stuff he can.
And people are jealous.

Would not be a bad idea to put JB on the board of directors.
