With a couple of minor mods, it would be the perfect guitar to play at those "rough and rowdy" venues:

Sharpen the points and edges - instant harpoon (or pike for "up close wet work"). :D

It's not hideous.

Not my thing, but if I had it, I'd happily play it.

But I'd need a giant crossbow so I could outdo Townsend & Hendrix.

A little lighter fluid &

That was one of their Guitars of the Week. Apparently they are having some issues coming up with 52 ideas.

That has to be the nastiest guitar a major guitar brand ever came up with. Let's talk about how to ruin a great design with a simple idea... turn it backwards.

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.... :puke:
That's just plain horrible.....I mean, I know that sometimes in a production type enviroment you want to reverse your thinking, but this is just sad. I'm going to go cry now.

Looks like someone at the Gibson factory had a rough weekend. They're putting them together backwards!! :thwap:


But speaking of subliminal messages, look at that bridge pickup in the picture. There's a man in there!!! :eek:

Dean Guitars should file a lawsuit since Gibson (almost) copied Dean's headstock design....:poke:

No it's not the sleep on your part, it's theirs-they're desparate for fresh ideas in an everchanging market.:master:

Ah, good. I'm not the only one. I was beginning to think it was just me. :crazyguy:


Ya know, now that I think about it, I do believe I've seen Strats done this same way at some point. I guess now we know where all of the ex-Fender employees go. ;)
