    I bet Epiphone won't be doing a cheap reissue of the 388...

    Yeah...they'll just hike up prices like their guitars and milk the brand....I can't see them developing anything further.
    They'll get behind the existing products that match well with guitar sales.

    Like what happend to Groove Tubes once Fender bought them. All the really great GT products vanished...and all they do is recycle cheap tubes with the GT brand....I doubt they even test and hand select them any more like GT use to.

    Sad but true that reputation is just a brand name for sale these days, and has been for many years. Few companies that I can think of off the top of my head are owned by the same people or follow the values of the original company that made it a household name. The Tokyo Electro Acoustic Company (TEAC) isn't going to be that under Gibson. On the other hand TEAC has not been TEAC for 10 years or so already.

    Well, I guess it's not like Gibson's going to halt production of their analog recorders or anything...
