Re: WHY GIBSON?!?!?!?!

Nah, I go with Mr Jiggity - it's the stupidist commercially produced guitar I have ever seen - Gibson should really just accept the fact that the Les Paul is about the only solid body they make that makes any sense and just get on with making millions of 'em........

Actually, maybe they should look at an improved Les Paul with a one piece bridge/tailpiece (to stop all those annoying rattly bits), a double cutaway for access, straight string pull for tuning stability and a bit of body contouring for weight control/comfort.....

..... oh, hang on, that's a PRS........

Re: WHY GIBSON?!?!?!?!

Considering Les Pauls have been weight relieved since the mid 80s and mave made a double cutaway body since 1958, I think you got most of your wishes.

Stupid gimmick.

They should reissue the Moderne instead.

Heh. Looks like a mouse pointer.

Hoping it's a photoshop job, not a real guitar.

Re: WHY GIBSON?!?!?!?!

I always thought Gibson had more... "dignity" than that.
