Visit the Gibson Member’s Forums website at Gibson Guitar Board (http://forum.gibson.com/. How many countries are represented among Gibson aficionados? How does the company appeal to Gibson fans across countries and cultures?
When I go to the forum page, I see 6 countries that are represented. There is the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and Spain. They each have their own section within the forum so the people from those countries can all speak with other aficionados from that country. The company appeals to fans through this forum. It helps them connect together, solve problems, and just talk about anything Gibson related, or not, to Gibson fans. Often times people stay away from products because of problems fixing broken amps, or guitars, but the forum allows everybody to solve there own problems rather than taking the items in for service. This creates a culture of family for the fans.
