Had to look that up.I don't see the issue. G&L have done similar, Fender have longer ago, so what? I like a Tele, I like SGs...I never keep SGs. Having owned over half a dozen, some Gibson and some not so much the neck dive has always been an issue amongst a couple other things.
Godin's newer Radium is on my list though, for a whole lot less. Doesn't have the polish and bevels, but doesn't have the price tag either. I think this would look a lot sharper with a 3 on a side type of headstock, but I'd rock it hard as is.
The last time Gibson tried innovation it led to a thousand guitars being run over with a bulldozer.innovate
Don’t tell the acoustic world.... they’d be sad to hear that.They can’t just make a gazillion versions of the same body styles forever.
Since Fender teases Gibson fans with their 'Parallel Universe' Troublemaker Teles often nicknamed "Les Tele", this looks like a nice way to turn the table and tease Fender Fans with a Telecaster lookalike.
