Between the pickguard and the trussrod cover, 80% of the guitar is behind some sort of plating? :(

Still, it looks cool. Don't love the location of the jack, though, if I'm seeing it correctly. Looks like it would direct the cable up and out from the lower bout?

Perhaps surprisingly, I don't hate it. Kinda cool, actually.

This is the "Official" announcement on Gibson's web page. Is there a limit as to how many times we can discuss something? Better tell the Top Wrap crew!
Well, if you don't do your due diligence and sign in at least twice a day
to get informed and see what's up, that's what happens.
I think you should be banned.

:D

Meh.

Kind of looks like a Jackson knock-off. Kind of ironic, that Jackson sued Gibson in the '80s, over the Epiphone S-600...
