    Did some Googling, looks like they're using Alnico 3 magnets and wound to an output of about 7.5k. If anything these guitars should sound really good.

    Am I wrong for not HATING A Squad and Street Race? Certainly wouldn't be my first choice, but if one was given to me I wouldn't return it...how's that for a hearty recommendation?

    I'm assuming it's his own methane gases emitting from his bung hole.

    I'm sure they do. It sounds EXACTALLY like where I work.

    SCENARIO:

    - Execs Enter Room
    - Henry enters room after making Execs wait an uncomfortable amount of time
    - Henry asks for ideas, thoughts, input
    - Durring this time Henry will sit clicking his pen. open-close open-close open-close
    - Making appointments on his phone
    - open-close open-close open-close
    - Eat, with his mouth open, spewing food as he chews.
    - open-close open-close open-close
    - gets up from chair and looks out window
    - rummages through some random cupboard - clinking glasses or whatever is there.
    -returns to table just before execs are finished "speaking"
    - plays with coffee coaster, flip-flip-flip

    - Then, after NOT listening to what anyone has to say state
    - "Okay, good talk. Here's what we are going to do."

    (NO PURPLE IMPLIED ANYWHERE)

    Well right, the price alone is a barrier for me. But aside from that, I don't HATE the looks...

    Those axes remind me of stupid underwear in low budget 70s porn.

    And why goin commando is preferable.

    It's almost like Henry doesn't realize $5k is a lot of money for like 97.5% of the population.

    There is the possible reality that he knows the end is near and is just making everything he thought was a cool idea but couldn't make trying to run a successful business.

    So, Gibson finally does something I have wanted for decades - released a new Custom with the 3-piece maple neck (volute and all!) - and then they slap these ridiculous paint jobs on them? Crying.

    If they were $600 Tributes they might sell a few.

    At 5 Grand we separate the boys from the Fanboys.

    I kinda like all of them. It’s not like they are stopping production of the more traditional models. I think they would look pretty bad-ass on stage if you were in a 70’s glam type scenario. Not so much for the Allman Brothers tribute band, but they have their place!
