    Gibson was very adept at tracking costs associated with production. The FON is essentially a work order that dictates how many and what do we need to build next. So, everything was tracked via the...

    Re: Unsigned Loar on Reveb

    Hendrik,

    Re: Unsigned Loar on Reveb

    My point of view is that "Unsigned Loar" is just another marketing ploy to attempt to increase an instrument's value beyond what it would be otherwise.
