    I would love to be in the room when these things get discussed.

    Oh wait, they don't!
    :shock:

    Is Henry a heavy drinker?

    If so, does he never sober up and call management "You know those **** ugly limited editions I commissioned while being hammered? Yeah, burn them! Never let them see the light of day!"

    See now these are the ideas that should be relegated to Epiphone, and let Gibson retain some class and culture ffs.




    ....and dignity.

    At some point, one of the six or seven people who actually buys one of these things is gonna announce it on this forum in a loud and proud "NGD!" thread.

    Can't wait for that day :)

    Indeed, it is the Gernan flag! I think at least 70 million out of 90 million Germans will buy one out of pure patriotism and save Henry‘s a**.

    Ironic mode off:
    I don’t really dig these guitars.

    "A squad"....... more like "A team". Not digging these. Even the american flag and a union Jack or even a pirate flag...all in sparkle paint would have been cooler than these paint jobs.

    I'd be interested in how many of those, they actually sell?

    I just hope that Gibson has enough sense to not make more than 3-5 each of these. There's someone (or two) that will love them and have more money than sense.

    I feel I'm pretty open minded about all the different LPs out there, even though most are not for me personally. But frankly, I can not find a place in my mind to be open about these.

    Such a lame/desperate attempt at something new.

    Henry, please let some of the folks that have been making these guitars for a while make suggestions on innovation.....oh, wait, I bet you've run off all the dedicated/skilled people that could save the company, by treating them like shit and paying the same.

    Crap like this is why I won't buy another new Gibson while that clown is in charge.

    How about one made in the image of the Scooby Doo Van LMAO. In fact Gibson should just make guitars based on iconic movie vehicles while they're it at. :doh:

    I like most split diamond Les Pauls. I like these— except for the price. But I only buy used- so I really don’t care what they do.
