In my humble opinion.. this is a joke of the year !!!
You do not have to agree with me, but I simply can't get myself to find at least a part of something, shown in this video, which convinced me that this is worth 5,5 K ?!? blink.gif

totaly agree, they add som crap, call it a limited edition revolution and raise the price. Being it's a limited edition they might be able to trick enough poor (or rich) souls into buying it. huh.gif

What an aweful looking guitar.. and it looks even smaller due to the man playing being big. Then again, Gibson has released a lot of weird stuff lately. smile.gif

The company is on a downward spiral and the CEO and the other Gibson managers only seem to think in their own world...

So far we have these problems with Gibson:
-senior builders tend to leave the company because of new working conditions
-quality control was on an all time low a few years back which resulted in a lack of trust by the buyers
-too many variations of the same guitar (especially the Les Paul) which makes it confusing to find the right one
-horrible design ideas that nobody wants to buy (reverse guitars, zoo suit guitars, holy guitars)
-trying to force a modern image on a vintage style company with badly designed robot guitars and such
-the lack to see that fans crave for specs such as longer scale length, diffrent pickups, thinner necks and such

Now that Axcess was a cool guitar. Too bad they dumped that. If we'd have seen a 25.5" scale with the heal contour. Yummy. *shrug*

I don't like the shape very much... nor the color... or the headstock...

Besides, the sounds it emulates, that's what I have a POD for.

I agree with Zakk. Why don't they release things e actually care about. I'd love a thin neck Gibson for a change.

I have been looking for an orignal firebird for a while now, these new contraptions are just so way out side what most of their customers want, its not funny. If they are marketing to the young crownd they have gone wrong, i dont know any young guys who can drop 5k on an axe.... The older guys who could pay that much for an axe wont buy that crap...

Ah, talking about where Gibson should put their money. A sevenstring Steinberger ZT-3 would be AWESOME tongue.gif

I think I'm gonna be the only person to say that its actually kinda cool. Not 5k worth of cool, but definitely something I would play with were I to come across it at a guitar shop. This guitar is targeted towards a specific crowd, and is only in limited production. Gibson knows this ain't going to revolutionize the guitar, they just want to get a buzz going to get people to go check out their products. We're talking about it right now, so I guess their marketing ploy has been somewhat effective tongue.gif

Would I buy one right now in my current financial situation? Hell no, but if I had thousands upon thousands of disposable income, I would pick one up. Come on, are you trying to tell me none of you wouldn't mess around with this thing for hours on end? biggrin.gif

I agree man, Gibson has dropped the ball on the last couple of "innovations" they've had.

yuck......I dont feel like going to the gibson website because this crap thing shows up right in the front....I hate gibson because they rip people off....I think that technological innovation is cool .. ...but this is way too retarded


But, my favourite is the Tony Iommi Signature SG..I saw the OZZFEST DVD and that thing sounds heavier than anything else ..such a fat ballsy tone....loved it

@ZAKK The funny part isthey are removing all the good models out of the line. Like the iommi sg and gothic les paul.

I saw a guy playing this les paul gibson gothic....it was a pure metal machine...

I wonder if any body at gmc has a gibson gothic lespaul
