First off, it’s not what you think, and it’s pretty darn funny.
But it was serious at the same time because when Ren Ferguson left Gibson Acoustic, it was very heated and dramatic.
Ren Ferguson is the ex master luthier for Gibson acoustic guitars. He’s now at Guild.
What led up to him resigning from Gibson is a story you need to hear.
When I first started interviewing guitar icons like Tommy Emmanuel and Paul Reed Smith, it was like rocket fuel for inspiring me to dive even deeper into my guitar obsession.
So to inspire you today I’m giving you a quick 90 second story that was taken from the original 30 minute interview I did with Ren Ferguson several years ago.
This full conversation was easily the most transparent and revealing behind the scenes account of Gibson Guitars I’ve ever heard.
