    It's funny how everybody talks bad about him....but, everybody talks about him. I guess that's what keeps him in the game. :lol:

    I was going to buy a pre-Gibson Tobias made in the original Tobias shop that Ed had for sale. It was very expensive but I wanted it. I refused to buy it until Ed gave me the serial number. He said he couldn't read the first digit which would place it in the original or Gibson made category.
    I called the next day and Ed had someone else check the serial number and it was a Nashville made, Gibson Tobias.
    Ed proceeded to tell me that he was selling the bass on it's own merits and not on the serial number. He had advertised a pre-Gibson bass and it was a fraud and priced as a pre-Gibson Tobias.
    I say he is a salesman, nothing more or less and will do anything to make a buck.

    "Cal Worthington and his dog Spot"

    Needless to say I take anything he says with a grain of salt and unless I verify the guitar in person, I won't fork over my hard earned cash to him sight unseen.

    That's what I thought...a salesmen, out to make a buck and any press is good press! Met him at a White Plains Guitar show and well that was during his famed extreme rant period so....... :roll:

    Well, he's right about Heritage. Exquisite. Try a Sweet 16 or a Super Eagle. Just magnificent.

    i checked out those heritages.....nice indeed!! while on ed's site, i ran across this and brought it over here for your amusement...

    Most of us are familiar with those little computer symbols called "emoticons," where :) viewed right side up means a smile, and :( is a frown.
    Sometimes these are represented by :-) and :-( respectively.

    Well (with no artlessness intended), how about some "assicons"?

    Here goes:

    (_!_) a regular ass


    (__!__) a fat ass

    (!) a tight ass

    (_+_) a sore ass

    {_!_} a swishy ass?

    (_0_) an ass that's been around

    (_x_) kiss my ass

    (_X_) leave my ass alone

    (_zzz_) a tired ass

    (_o^o_) a wise ass

    (_E=mc2_) a smart ass

    (_?_) a dumb ass??

    "Gibson has never been known for innovation...." -Ed Roman-

    Didn't Gibson invent the cutaway?
    I would consider that to be an innovation.

    i think gibson does some pretty innovative stuff, lookat the blueshawk, built with a dummy coil in its gut, and around the varitone. cool styling imho too. the flying v and explorer opened the can for all these other guys to imitate and try to expound on. and weren't they around when if you did anything at all it was innovation???

    fender's got it going on with the s-1 switching, but every company out there uses humbuckers and where do ya spose those came from??

    (skids falls off soapbox, and thus ending this diatribe....

    Hate to ask him what he thinks of the Norlins, if he's so inclined to be vicious tongued about Gibson in general. Why such an asp? Not an innovative human being himself, so he spends his time jabbing at others?

    Not like anyone at Gibson won't sleep tonight. :roll:

    it's obvious he's a self serving snit with an obvious grudge....he says he used to work for them and had something to do with design. he does have a nice lil operation going up there from what i can tell on the site, but he really should get a clue about presentation!! he makes valid points, sure, but who's gonna listen??

    a little old lady has a flat, yes it would be right if i stopped and helped her with it, but if she demands it in a mean way...well...she's right that i should help her, but am i gonna listen??

    The Heritage Sweet 16. I've played this model and folks.... its one sweet thang! Its a mid-level (price) guitar, but the appointments are outstanding - you'll need to look REAL close in this small picture to see 'em tho.

    Sweet 16 inlay on the headstock, real "multiple" binding (not just b/w/bw binding Gibo calls multi), bound wooden pickguard, bound f/holes, inlaid bridge... they do a burst color on the pickguard to match the body, and also burst the back of the neck, back of the headstock and back of the body... AND the rims! Just exquisite in all details and execution, still priced under $2500.

    My friend Doug got his back about 10 years ago, new, for about $1200, and could easily make some moola on it. His is the one I played.

    Heritage Golden Eagle. Look at the inlays... the rims... the appointments. Yes those are bound f/holes. Just phenominal.

    Heritage Super Eagle

    Heritage H150CM... yes they do solid bodies and semi hollows too.

    Heritage Standard VSB, a semil hollow.
