OK.... ther IS a problem! blink.gif

ok so first came the reverse flying V from gibson. about a year ago, they started a limited edition run of this *erhm* guitar, but recently they began to make more of this kind of arrow-guitar, wich IMO Was ugly. for those who didnt saw it:
gibson reverse V

But the real fuss is about their latest reverse model: the reverse Gibson Explorer!
here is the link:gibson reverse explorer

this is very weird, even ugly-ier than the reverse flying V, IMO

tell me what you think about it too please

(i can't wait for the reverse SG and Les Paul laugh.gif !)

I like it, with it's weird headstock and everything, but it'd need to be in more flamboyant colors than that.

Yeah apart from the headstock it is a sweet looking guitar, specially the higher frets are now accessible on an Explorer.
Why is it called Reverse Explorer it's more an Upside-Down Explorer. I can imagine a reverse Les Paul but a reverse Sg would not change anything...

I don't understand why you think that tongue.gif The reverse V, I'll agree, is probably the ugliest guitar I've ever seen, but this one looks kinda cool. Except the headstock tongue.gif And perhaps the pickguard.

Kinda cool in a funky way, like jack white's guitar:

Actually I also think that the pickguard and the pickup ring on the neck pickup doesn't look right.

The headstock has to be the most ugly headstock I've seen in my life, but the rest is not so bad... not that I like it, but not bad looking either.

Now, the reverse V, that was UGLY!! laugh.gif laugh.gif

That's a sad excuse for a guitar... Who in their right mind wanted to take a beautiful Explorer and ruin it's design?
And the headstock would have me screaming and running away with fear if I ever saw one...
