By thegreatgumbinoMarch 7, in Gibson Acoustic. Sorry if I missed this, but a search turned up nothing. I was talking with the owner of Great Southern Music Houstonand he mentioned that Fuller's is no longer a Gibson dealer. Sure enough, I checked Gibson's website and they are no longer Fullers vintage guitars houston. Called Fuller's and they confirmed they are no longer Fullers vintage guitars houston them.

Eric said, "We needed a break". With all the news of Gibson making life difficult for dealers, sounds more like a "breakup". I'm shocked and saddened by this. They had the best selection of Gibson guitars in town bar none. Really bummed that their won't be any more Fuller's custom reissues coming out.

I will as well. Great folks and a great Fullers vintage guitars houston. Really sad to see this. Pure speculation, but makes me wonder with Bush humping laura midget the Gibson debt talk if they are pushing their dealers to take on more inventory to increase their profits and Fuller's wasn't ready to do that.

That's a real shame. Their special-run re-issues really were special. I have one of those, designated as a " Southern Jumbo", and it's a great guitar with largely authentic characteristics that are sometimes missing Fullers vintage guitars houston Gibson's standard "re-issues".

Fuller's was very helpful when I called them about some of the specifications of my guitar, even though I had bought the guitar used from a dealer in California.

I've bought a number of Gibsons from Mike and Jeremy Fuller and their staff. I remember crawling through the attic over Mike's office one time looking through his SJ re-issues -- what fun! So -- long time ago Elderlymore recently Dave's and now Fuller's -- no longer dealers.

We just met Mike Fuller last month for the first time. My daughter lives in Houston, and we have a new "grandson outpost" there -- a backyard apartment in my daughter's new house. It is rented until August, so we take possession then. I have hung out in Houston quite a lot in my life -- besides daughter, I worked a lot with Texas Instruments and Rice, so I was there a lot.

We play some with that band outside of Texas -- now we plan to play inside Texas. Here is what they sound like Dead Girl Songs. Guitar content: The guitars are a 44 J, 35 Jumbo, and a 37 D So while house hunting, we visited Fuller Vintage Guitar. Well they had a S Kay 5- string bass. Now my wife already has two Ss -- she loves them -- but the Fullers vintage guitars houston she has are not in the same city -- in fact not even Fullers vintage guitars houston the same country.

It seemed like if we Fullers vintage guitars houston going to have a musical outpost in Houston, my wife clearly needs a S Fullers vintage guitars houston Houston. I mean you can't put a double bass in an overhead bin! Well it tuns out that was Mike Fuller's personal S -- played it many years in a bluegrass band. He started as a folkie, played bluegrass a lot, sings tenor "the girlie part" and he is really into vintage instruments, particularly Gibsons.

So we bought the bass before a house was found. Turned out a house was bought soon there after -- important because there was no place to store the bass. Almost certainly my wife now has the largest collection of Kay Fullers vintage guitars houston double basses in the world?

Nothing is too good for wife who does music. Long story short, Mike Fuller is going to show us around Houston and play some Fullers vintage guitars houston with us too I hope. I found him incredibly nice and an impressive expert. It is really nice to know he is very highly regarded -- he seems like a jewel. They were fantastic to deal with. I hope they have great success whatever they are selling. Yes, I noticed Fuller's had parted ways with Gibson about a month ago, while searching for a J I will readily consider buying from them again in the future if the Fullers vintage guitars houston guitar comes along - but it won't be a new Gibson, because they too have dropped the brand.

Dave's Guitar Shop went through this last Fullers vintage guitars houston. That is a great store but they could not deal with Gibson's demands so they ended up Fullers vintage guitars houston ways. Jim Baggett and Mass Street Music are still authorized dealers so if it should ever come to me scoring a new Fullers vintage guitars houston unlikely but never say never I would go to them. Several former Gibson dealers within striking distance of me have stopped working with them in the last year.

The snowball is rolling downhill and getting bigger. I see this Fullers vintage guitars houston. I'm not sure where it will stop. Hopefully when it's over Gibson dealers won't be too few and too far between. I kinda suspected Pussy from ebony behind as far back as last October.

Fuller's had no Gibsons on display at the Dallas International Guitar show, despite having probably guitars from other brands there. Usually, the Gibson mobile showrooms are parked right next to the Fuller's display area as well to Fullers vintage guitars houston Fuller's sales, but they were not there. Nor was Don Ruffalo present, who assists Gibson customers in the Fuller's area which makes sense, since Fuller's brought no new Gibsons.

When I visited the store in November, there were just a paltry number of new acoustics, and maybe even fewer electrics.

Very sad. I believe until recently they were Gibson Acoustic's largest dealer. I have a Fuller's Vintage J Reissue, which is a Fullers vintage guitars houston guitar. As others have mentioned, the guitars they speced as exclusive models have often been extraordinary. I believe Mike and his team, having dealt with so many vintage models, were able to impart a measure of historical knowledge that Gibson had lost with its move to Bozeman.

Not knocking Bozeman in any way, they build very fine guitars and I have more than my fair share, but few if any of their builders had any of the institutional knowledge that would be naturally passed to one generation of worker to another had there been some continuity in personnel or location or tools, jigs, and patterns. They had to back engineer a lot from scratch. I remember Fullers vintage guitars houston flabbergasted that until they made the Legend J, they were unaware that the depth of Gibson headstocks on vintage Fullers vintage guitars houston had been tapered from the top to Fullers vintage guitars houston neck.

This is despite the fact that they labeled various Js as "Historic" and "Early" and meticulous recreations. Heck, the Epiphone Masterbilts had this subtle in effect but important feature when they were first released in my memory may be wrong about the year. That happened at Fullers vintage guitars houston beginning of this year in Virginia Beach.

Alpha Music has always carried Gibson guitars but they had to stop. It was just as you stated above, Gibson making life difficult for dealers. Too bad. That is what happened to the store in Virginia Beach, Gibson pushing their dealers to take on more inventory.

I wonder if Gibson is gonna go to online, only. Could it be they are gearing up for an enhanced online sales approach, in sync with Gibson HQ, Musicians Friend, Sweetwater? Or something similar?

It is the next wave in merchandising. Just thinking. I got no dog in this hunt as I stick with used - often very used - guitars. And while they may not be carrying new Gibsons, they all will continue to offer used guitars. Jeremy Fuller was great to deal with, providing me construction facts, how it Fullers vintage guitars houston from Musicians Friends s Iconic J that I was also interested in, etc.

I can only hope Fullers gets back into the business of selling new Gibsons. Gryphon in Palo Alto was for decades a Gibson dealer. They sold a lot of mandolins, archtops, and banjos, mostly the high end instruments. Must have been fifteen years ago Gibson started telling them they had to sell Epiphones to get the L5s they could sell.

The boutique guitar builders were coming on strong, and Collings were building very good mandolins so Gryphon parted ways with them. Fast forward to a year or so ago and there they were, ten or twelve Gibsons. I told Frank I thought I'd never see the day. He said neither did we. Six months later, no more Gibsons, so it didn't last.

The so called preferred dealer can't get J 45s or J 45 vintages regularly, but they have to Fullers vintage guitars houston every special edition that comes along. Can't get a regular J either, but they had the Bob Dylan uber expensive one. And this is a place that can actually sell Les Pauls and Epiphone electrics.

Hopefully Gibson will get sold off to someone who cares about their history and wants a partnership with their dealers. That is what they are known for. See other posts. Hedgefund owner gets into the management role at Gibson. You can post now and register later.
