I'll take your word for it. This isn't the first time I've heard about
people running into trouble with Gibson; I recall Allan Holsdworth saying
that the main reason he stopped using Steinbergers was that he had
trouble communicating with the company once they became a part of
Gibson. (Sound familiar?!?!)
BTW, I got an insurance quote for my Echoplex yesterday, and you all may
be interested to know that the official retail price has dropped about
$100 from where it used to be; the plex now lists for $799. (The
footpedal is still $100).
