    Between the pickguard and the trussrod cover, 80% of the guitar is behind some sort of plating? :(

    Still, it looks cool. Don't love the location of the jack, though, if I'm seeing it correctly. Looks like it would direct the cable up and out from the lower bout?

    Perhaps surprisingly, I don't hate it. Kinda cool, actually.

    It kind of looks like a reverse of my Bat-mobile guitar avatar.

    I'm still waiting.

    It also resembles the Star Trek federation crest.

    Well, if you don't do your due diligence and sign in at least twice a day
    to get informed and see what's up, that's what happens.
    I think you should be banned.

    :D

    Meh.

    Kind of looks like a Jackson knock-off. Kind of ironic, that Jackson sued Gibson in the '80s, over the Epiphone S-600...

    Yeah, somewhere in SoCal, Grover Jackson is beating his desk in anger.

    Looks very much like the Jackson Roswell Rhodes from some time back in 2009 or 2010. . .

    It reminds me of a Gretsch, or a late 50's Plymouth...
