Don't even mention the reverse flying V, that's not even a guitar in my opinion...

Looks like they are scrambling for ideas.

And what get shat out of Gibson/Epiphone's womb? Another hideous creation. The reverse V is meant to be a collector guitar I think. This is the reason they haven't made a decent new guitar in 20 years. Another union company who should really be flushed of most of the higher management employees.

ehhh, i don't think its completely horrible looking, but not that great either. I guess you either like it or you don't pretty much. I don't like it, but I can see why some other people would.

The reverse flying v, however, is disgusting. It just makes me laugh every time i look at it, haha laugh.gif

Well, the combination of curves and sharp edges and angles can sometimes be pulled off to produce some lovely guitars, in general it doesn't work especially when it just seems like two very well known models have been through the chop shop. I've designed and made a couple of guitars in the past and I either stick to curvy ideas OR sharp straight lines, not both.
