It would appear that Gibson has pulled all its official videos from YouTube worldwide. Another online rumour also suggests that Mark Agnesi has been fired from the company too!
So Gibson has pulled all its official YouTube videos from the video sharing site. This means that the US guitar brand has no official video presence for its guitar range on the largest platform for potential new customers. Which seems odd, to say the least.
Mark Agnesi rumours
On top of that it is also being rumoured that Gibson’s Director Of Brand Experience Mark Agnesi has been let go from the company. The main source for this rumour comes from Phil McKnight on his YouTube channel. You can hear that being talked about around the 16 minute mark in the video below. Phil, then states that it seems to be a rumour (and he was right).
No, it wasn’t true. Agnesi is still at Gibson according to his official Instagram post. The rumour mill was way off on that information. Gibson’s Director Of Brand Experience is still part of the company.

There are a bunch of rumors about me floating around the Internet. The worst of which is that I don’t like offsets. That’s totally untrue. I think non-reverse Firebirds are totally rad, and so is this @marshallamps_uk Offset JTM-45 I just bought. It should fit in nicely with @gueikian and my collection of #OfficeMarshalls. You know…office Marshalls…for the office….where I work…and am still currently employed. #NewAmpDay #Gibsaturday #OffsetMarshallsSoundBetter
Hitting the fan?
At this time it is all just rumour, but you have to admit that it is a little odd for Gibson to pull all their official YouTube videos from its world-wide channel. I’ll update you all when I know more or find out some official information from reliable sources.
For now watch this space!
