    Well this what it has come to..first we got a Gibson version of a PRS for $4k now they are doing Jackson copies and asking 4K again Its absolutely no wonder the company struggles so much.

    Why not an LCD pickguard with the ability to play video?

    I am so completely not serious. Henry, if you use that idea I want $$ for it

    Sounds like a job for Townshend. Does he still have the energy?

    I don't hate the guitar, but it's not something I would buy.

    The body kind of looks small, almost like a cartoon.


    Gibson is giving us this stuff, but still won't make the new LP Standards/Traditionals in Ebony?

    Not 100% with the whole Richlite boards... maybe someday... but a cool looking stage guitar for the right band.

    Not a fan of the looks. Reminds me of the Jetsons.

    It's not offensive but it does remind me of my old school reports - "Could do better"

    I think it is a really cool looking guitar.

    I like it but the small block inlays seem out of place and speed knobs look huge. The price is crazy.

    As far as a modern day Flying V I always wanted Gibson to do what they did to the body and neck of the Epiphone Jeff Waters V.
