    From Henrys words.....

    ......Henry Juszkiewicz, that will change music forever. This is more than a press conference. More than an event. This is an uprising!.....

    Is this thing a hoax? I am going to wait for official word on this and the announcement before commenting. :slash:

    So that's it, then? A limited-run, programmable, robot-equipped, EQ-equipped guitar with a DSP and wireless techonolgy so it can talk to a wireless selector "pedal"...all with an MSRP of $5500.

    OK....I think that's why they call it "dope''...better pass that doobie next time!

    The definitions of the words 'revolutionary' and 'uprising' seem to have changed since I was a kid.

    I'm embarrassed for Gibson today. Seriously.

    So when it gets to the stores, it's going to have a price tag of around 3 grand!!!

    But something doesn't add up. What's with all the stuff about china? Surely this thing isn't made in China? A $3000 "digital" guitar that's made in China?

    Once again
