When you write a lot of blogs on a variety of topics, there are few real surprises left in life because you’ve read and written and dreamt it all. However, after I wrote my Fender and Gibson branded clothing review, I was genuinely surprised to receive an email from Fender thanking me for my review. I paid for all the Fender and Gibson clothes in my original review and I did not contact Fender or Gibson to let them know my review was published. Fender found me. Gibson did not.
