That is one reason I like Rickenbacker. There is no confusion as to what they are. They are their own thing.
Somehow I don't imagine very many (if any) are actually "confused" as to , "what they are" when buying a Taylor, Gibson, Martin, Fender, PRS, Rickenbacker or any other brand.

To each their own..... Personally I can't think of a better thing for both the guitar consuming public, and the companies themselves , than aggressive competition within given design characteristic areas, nore a worse thing for everybody, than monopolistic exclusivity.
