This looks interesting but the tummy cut and rear mounted pups are kind of weird. Especially the tummy cut.
Belly cuts are for Strats!

the smoother upper access to high frets is nice though.

That is a pretty color. That's a real nice looking SG there.

Now we're talking, this is pretty cool looking. Needs a black toggle chip. 'Gibsun Y U No Toggle Chip?'

are the headstocks still wide? looks like it.

I like the color of that Studio, how dark it is. And the black plastics.

I am ordinarily not a gold hw person but these two with gold would be gorgeous....if it was a darker gold....

Figure it out Gib. We put a man on the moon and peanut butter and jelly in the same damn jar, you should be able to figure out a darker gold plate that lasts...

That black Classic T is one of the most smokin' guitars Gibson has put out in years.

That being said, is anyone else annoyed by the regression on the SG? A few years back they finally fixed the SG by giving it proper deep bevels. Then just a couple years later they rolled back to the crappy shallow bevels. What gives?

at least that Gibson has a poker chip.

has Henry hired investigators to find out where all the poker chips are disappearing to? ....Aliens? The price of poker chips is too damn high? Me too ESP/LTD? :laugh2:

see the dog agrees,..peanut butter and jelly in the same jar is nasty. Neither the PB or J taste good.

You're going straight to hell for that...

That Epi doesn't look near as good in person. Looks like chalkboard finish.

Mojave burst looks pretty dope. Not sure I like those big looking chrome colored buttons though.
