Spot the Gibson with your host Lee Anderton!

#asmallorange Jay – … now a big, sour lemon – After hosting with several other companies over tha last decade, that all went down the drain (decreasing support and performance, what’s new?), I moved to ASO 2 years ago. They were considerably more expensive (‘Large plan’), but I figured it would pay (as it is a cut-throat industry). And they were worth the extra money: great support, good uptime. So I renewed for another year. Big mistake. They are now squeezing it like a lemon. First thing to make more bucks is to ditch (email) support. Without notification, of course. So when I didn’t get a response after a few days, which never happened before, I tried live-chat, with a ‘friendly’ guy – Indian, it appears, so I guess they started outsourcing it. When I mentioned email-support not working any longer, it not being right, he just ended the chat. So ‘friendly’. Problem solved. For him. Shortly after that, filling out a survey, it was not favorable (duh). Now all of a sudden their email is working (again), as I get weekly deals and offers to renew… Their uptime is certainly under 99% – regular outages (every few weeks?) of a few minutes, 10 – 15 minutes and one time even 4+ hours. I do keep track, using different monitors, but it is hard to come to a final number. Also, mail-outages – sites are up, but mail is just not delivered (or only after several hours, clients calling to check…). I’m definitely moving away from them – which is going to be a total pain, again – not only finding a decent alternative, but also all the hassle of setting up new (email)-acounts, instructing clients etc. But loyalty is a two-way street and that small orange let me down big time.

    Great vid! (As usual 😉 ) But what I really would like to see is if Rob can spot the Gibson if you change the Epis pups… Would be an awesome info for the modders out there.

    Every time I hear distorted open chords on a Les Paul it sounds out of tune. Is it my imagination??

    My Sg smells of chocolate. Love it. I almost think that Rob got it wrong on purpose just to silence his doubters. #earofabat

    The shot of Rob with the nose plugs is my new screen saver. 😛 It would have been more fun to pick a low end Gibson that doesn't come with a case and listen to Rob dismiss it because of the poor fret work vs higher end Epiphones. The easiest way for me to tell the difference is with the tone controls, since the Epi tone knobs do almost nothing until turned all the way.

    The Matt Heafy signature really is a great guitar. I own the 7 string and it is everything I could have ever wanted in a guitar.

    Hi, all fab channel love it. Its almost my favourite tv program 😂. Just a question? Do you think hand care is important and what do you use if you do? Any advise on finger nails?, short, long? Cheers guys keep up the good work?

  • Patricio Montemayor

    Challenge idea. Buy a guitar out of 10 blindfolded. Different brands and prices. Buy it purely out of sound and feel. Without budget or color in mind

    Whilst this is a fun video, everybody knows that new Gibson guitars smell very heavily of Nitro Cellulose ( Vanilla / burnt popcorn kind of smell ) New Epiphones smell of nothing until up close and then it is of a rank glue smell.

    I worked at Gibson USA in Nashville making guitars for 3 years. That delicious smell is actually from the hardshell cases. I leave 2 of my LPs wall mounted and they don't smell nice any more… until they spend some more time in their cases. 🙂

  • magicman12b
    Posted at 04:01h, 15 September

    I completely agree with Rob, you can always smell the distinct and wonderful intoxicating aroma of a Gibson. To me, the fresh smell of a new Gibson is a cross between lavender and vanilla. I have literally sat there for an hour sniffing my new Gibson, guilty pleasure.

    Posted at 05:11h, 15 September

    Rob said: Gibson smells… I propose slight modification to his statement: Gibson stinks… especially after its management's dirty tricks against PRS, not to mention its legal troubles when it was caught "red handed" with big stash of illegally acquired wood that was already on the "No, No" list Lol… In other words (with total respect to Les Paul for his contribution to the development of the electric guitar), *FUCK (!) that overrated and overpriced Gibson and it's infamous clone, Epiphone (pronounced: Yappi-phone in certain circles Lol…)

    some part of me prefers the edgier crunch of the Epi's!!

  • Zachary Krauss
    Posted at 16:02h, 15 September

    And he does that almost exclusively without playing a chord. For me, I can more easily hear differences with chords.

    I have an Epiphone that smells like play doh too. It’s not just a Gibson thing.

  • Lucas Dry

    You guys should invite Matt Heafy to Captain meets when he is in UK with Trivium.

  • superflea72
    Posted at 00:42h, 16 September

    I was thinking as soon as I saw the Traditional truss-rod cover, that Rob would've known it was a Gibson based on the chunky neck alone. I would think that Epiphones would all have a more 'accessible' sized neck, no?

    If you really want to test him, have Pete or someone else play so that he can only use his ears…it would be interesting to see how accurate he is then. 😉

  • Kevin Hill
    Posted at 02:37h, 16 September

    Too easy. It's unfortunate that you can not find some proper LP type guitars (like FGN or Tokai made in Japan and kicking Gibson's ass) to make it really challenging. These crappy Epiphone guitars are easy to be distinguished.

  • MotionCoMMotion
    Posted at 02:59h, 16 September

    Wished you guys threw a Ltd or Esp in there just to mess with him.

  • Matthew Dunn
    Posted at 03:20h, 16 September

    I had one of the Matt Heafy signature sevens, and I'll be damned if it didn't smell like play-doh.
