Gibson Buys Stanton DJ Equipment, Proving Korn Was On To Something

FutureMusic is reporting that guitar maker Gibson is in talks to buy Stanton, one of the major manufacturers of DJ equipment. FutureMusic posits that Gibson is picking up the company in order to buy and spin off its KRK brand professional speakers. Given Gibson’s move into the electronic realm, however, it’s likely this looked like synergy to the embattled company.

No official word from either of the companies, but it’s interesting to see Gibson move away from the traditional and into what many would consider an anathema to to their flagship products.
