Here come the former Gibson brand "Vintage Reissues". Or maybe a limited edition "Bankruptcy Model" at $10,000 each?
Serial number 1095243 of 1095247.

They were being sued over the robotuners for $50m only a week ago - maybe that hastened the timing

This lawsuit is going to fall flat on its face...
tronical is upset because Gibson dropped them after going all out in 2015.
Reason that they were dropped is because the system is buggy and expensive and no one wanted them.
So tronical designs a product no one wants and are blaming it on Gibson ... that's going to fly about as well as an emperor penguin.
