OKCtodd71, I'm with you. It's one thing to buy a name like Gibson, Harmony, Kent, Dobro - all factories that have had many owners - and "recreate" or "restart" the production line. I have few issues with that. My problem is with taking the name and namesake of a person, a single builder, like D'Angelico or Stromberg. Stromberg was mostly two people, father and son, produced less than 650 instruments, and the company died when they died. For me, start a new name for your new guitars.
