Wow. I know some companies can do sleazy things – but this one is VERY VERY LAME:
A musician named Tonedeff won the Lolapalooza Last Band Standing contest in 2006. Part of the prize package was “$10,000 worth of equipment from our friends at Gibson. (yes, believe it!).” Well, Tonedeff believed it, and he’s spent the last year and a half trying to get Gibson to make good on their promise. As Tonedeff notes on his blog, maybe he should have seen this coming when Don Pittsâ€”Gibson’s Ambassador of Empty Promises (show above with devil eyes)â€”told him, “I mean, this is kind of weird, because you know, you DON’T play the guitar or drums.”Â – The Consumerist

Read all about it here: http://consumerist.com/348960/gibson-screws-musician-out-of-10000-worth-of-equipmentÂ and at the guy’s own blog here: http://blog.qn5.com/2008/general/rant-gibson-hates-hip-hopÂ .
