  2. I believe they've been purchased by American Music Corp. The same company that owns Washburn and other companies. I wonder what that means for them?:meh:

    I believe this information refers to EDEN.

    I have no information on SWR at all (although they sponsor this board) but Eden was recently purchased as described above.

    It would seem a bit unlikely to me that both manufacturers would have the same problem and the same solution within a few months of each other.
     
  4. I stand corrected. U.S Music Corp has purchased Eden. What a bummer. I love Eden equipment. Everyone buy your favorite Per-U.S. Music gear before it becomes "vintage" gear. Hmmm...I've always wanted a Highwayman and 2 410XLT's. I wonder if I could sell this idea to my wife?:rolleyes:
