    For some odd reason, I agree. However, it does make me feel all funny inside.

    Well, I have a few problems with it. I don't like maple boards and I don't like the general looks of them (I don't even like normal Firebirds), but I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to try one either.

    It won't be different to any other guitar, and it certainly won't play any better than a PRS, Anderson etc. whatever you already play.

    The real task is whether the microprocessors, yes they are now being put inside guitars, work or not?

    What if you pick it up and want some flanger and it says, "Sorry diceman, batteries are low" :laugh2: :laugh2:

    I want to play one myself, but my predictions of whether I like a guitar or not before even playing it are mostly, always (lol), correct. Because I'm smug and arrogant.

    The thing looks dreadful and the features are illogical so therefore I believe I'll hate it.

    Think I'll go out and buy one just to prove that capitalism has made it possible for me to afford one.

    Yay, a maple fretboard and a swirl paint job! Hooray for revolution!

    News flash, Henry, you can cover it with dog crap or solid gold and people will still cringe when they see it.

    All I wanted was a Firebird with humbuckers and Steinberger tuners. But no...

    My guess is the the delay is due to them feverishly trying to find a well known guitar player to play and endorse it.

    A new laptop is pretty much obsolete within a year after purchase. :cool:
    Is Intel going to start building Les Pauls now?

    As pretentious as the FirebirdX appears, don't you still want to try one out at least? I can't see myself really buying one, but it would be cool to take a test drive for grins. I bet most everyone tried out the original Robots. Hell, I bought a first issue Robot, but later traded it for a Taylor T5 because the robotic stuff did not get me real excited. But, the original Robot was a good player.

    I most certainly agree that the marketing of this new guitar has been less than stellar.
