With that body shape you could probably glue about ten of them together like a pinwheel and make a 10 neck.

It looks like some new employee set the CNC router wrong, and Gibson wants to sell it.

Looks like something out of spinal tap!

Definitely goes in the "weirdest guitars" folder of my brain.

What was the backstory on that video again? As I remember it, that scene was shot separate the following day from the scenes with the band, and so the guitars were locked up and unavailable. A production assistant had to fake a guitar by making a cardboard cutout and the person glued the body on backwards, hence the inverted V that the guard was playing.

I also remember some video footage of early air guitar performances at a club in the UK where there was this guy who made his own cardboard guitar as an inverted V. Wouldn't it be great if either of those were the inspiration for this?

I LOVE it and will rush out and get one right now because I do need a new anchor for my boat, lol. Gibson should also give you a compass and a Long John Silver's gift card if you buy this thing ...

Haha, I saw that a few months ago. I guess the pic was leaked. It's ugly as hell, and even uglier with the original Explorer headstock. I agree that it looks like the cardboard guitar in the "Breakin' the Law" video. In fact, that was my first thought upon seeing it.

I'm still planning to buy ANOTHER Explorer (white with ebony board - will be my 4th explorer in three years - sold the others) this year and that hasn't changed after seeing this
