Why does the Aria AMG–10 look similar to the PGG-100? Gibson was at the forefront of innovation in acoustic guitars, especially in the big band era of the 1930s; the Gibson Super 400 was widely imitated. This technological advantage eliminates dead spots, and provides much quicker response to the notes you play. Fender and Gibson have been getting all the glory in the electric guitar world recently, but Schecter should not be ignored.
