Gibson Les Paul Bails $10,000 Contest Prize

Gibson Les Paul GuitarsThere seems to be a lot of band contests these days, and you’d think a company like Gibson Les Paul would be one whose terms you could trust.  Apparently, Tonedeff won the Lalapolooza Last Band Standing contest in 2006, and has spent over 1 1/2 years trying to cash in on the $10,000 prize. 

Tonedeff is a hip hop artist, and apparently Gibson was a little annoyed to be giving drums and guitars away to someone who wouldn’t actually use them; they’d probably just be eBay fodder.  Still, a contest prize is a contest prize, no?  Check out the sad story at the Consumerist and QN5, Tonedeff’s label blog.  [thanks, EKA Hosting]

    After what Gibson did to both Oberheim and Opcode, great product brands that they gobbled up and then promptly eviscerated and destroyed, I’ll never even consider looking at a Gibson product ever again.

    That Gibson would do this kind of thing is not surprising in the least.

    The intellectual production by the students is done through research work and assignment writing. In an assignment, a student has to choose a theme and concept for the detailed analysis. This process improves the knowledge of students.
