    Because the YouTube channel belongs to another member here.

    I'm not a fan either, but the guitar has a longer scale and a bigger body to compensate, so it's not exactly the same thing.

    The body has nothing to do with the scale, BH spec'd it like that, I take it he is fairly tall...
    Longer scale LPs yeah!!!, no reason for them to look like that though. :cheers:

    My handmade 7string LP is 25,2 inches, and it's awesome!
    There are people who downtune normal Gibbys (I did it as well) without an issue.
    So Idk, I think those who complain, are mostly doing it just to follow the trend. because someone said so o the net... My Gibby 7 string standard also plays fine..:dunno:

    Buckethead's signature LP was definitely a longer scale, but I don't recall if it was 25 1/2" or something else. It's my understanding that, due the longer scale, he asked Gibson to also scale up the body size just a tad, so that the overall look would be consistent with the proportions of a traditional Les Paul.

    Whatever the case, it's interesting, but it's not for me. The size and scale length, the kill switch, the overall aesthetics and color (or lack thereof), none of that suits me at all. But, then again, it wasn't built for me! :)

    I think it's a cool and unique guitar :hmm: I tried this guitar's "Studio" version. It sounds really nice. And I need to say: I don't have a YouTube channel :);)

    In context it's a cool guitar, but "bring back a legend" is off base as its "legendary" status is unsubstantiated.
