    A new classic for rocking through the twenty-first century

    I'm not sure I want to be in the 21st century right now.

    A perfect example of Gibson taking a product 97% of the way to awesome and pissing it away at the last second.

    From the bottom of the guitar to the nut I think it looks great. The switch is a bit unconventional (and i would probably hit it all the time), but I like the finish and the simplicity of the guitar.

    And then... the headstock...

    I remember these! You know - much like the Firebird X - it’s one of those guitars that makes me think, “there’s a way of laying out the exact same controls in a aesthetic pleasing and useful manner but that’s not it!”
