    Yea, I'm not aware of the laws in Canada, but I'm sure they're not as self-defense-friendly as many of the places in the USA. At the very least call the cops, then get into some kind of fight, then sue them. They wouldn't really have a leg to stand on in court.

    Problem in some jurisdictions is that the overriding mentality is that the criminal is the "victim" and the defender is the "criminal". So any action taken in self defense is viewed as a crime.

    Jeez I would love to see price drops like that in my neck of the woods . I have been saying all along the market must correct and it hasn't happened , instead it keeps prices jumping sky high like on everything .

    With all the free stimulus checks everybody but me have been getting.
    That $200. shouldn't be a problem.
    It's not the $200. why I won't buy a new Lester.
    Much prefer the early 2000's Les Paul's over the current. And price is much better too.

    The only people that's been getting stimulus checks in quite a long while now are people with kids. I don't have kids, so no mo help for me either. Most people that can shell out for a new Gibson should be well off enough and not stress over a measly $200. IMHO anyways. :shrug:

    Not surprised, people still buy and if people still buying Gibson will increase the price knowing people will buy the name Gibson anyways.

    Though I like the gibson designs, they are mostly built like crap. Cheap wood, clunky, poorly finished...it's sad

    Are you saying that if more people buy Gibson that will help drive the price upwards ?

    No, I'm saying whatever the price for Gibson guitars people still will buy it just because its a Gibson.
