    I read that article earlier this week. Those toys are expensive to begin with. I don't get the investment toy market. At least collectable basses can be taken out of the case and played.

    After reading some of the stuff around here regarding Gibson's stuff, I'd say that their concerns about people thinking Gibson actually made those just-barely-looks-like-guitars, was well founded...:D
  4. If you look closely at the Slash figure, you can see he's playing the famous Gibson Slash Bass!

    Can’t wait to hear what Rickenbacker has to say about the Lemmy figure. It’s actually done very well, lots of humorous detail. You can find these things on EBay at reasonable prices if you wait long enough. GC has them marked way up, trying to catch the impulse buyers.

    Really? That's a Les Paul? I thought it was a Memphis.

    Looks to me like Ace is playing a Gretsch, with all that orange.
    Gibson can't sue over that.
