    amazing... and I'm totally one for more simplistic controls on SG's and Paul's. 1 tone and 1 vol. is all you need! ;-)

    I personally think that SG and that ZW thing are just about as ugly as it gets. Stick to old school Gibson!

    Mmmm, I like it, maybe better in vintage cherry, walnut or sunburst but it's a really cool idea.

    I kind of like the carved top SGs. Who made those?

    The control layout needs work, but the regular SG control layout is pretty bad too.

    I like both the CAR and GT, but not much into the carved top. But if I saw one in person, I might be OK with it. Is that really a Gibson? I've seen a CAR SG before, as well as a CAR ES335 and a LP, and all were pretty cool.

    The sweetest SG will always be the one you love playing!

    For me,

    Carved top SGs? I kinda like 'em! Gives them a little more meat.

    I've seen worse ideas come out of Gibson.

    I held that SG in my hands and got to get a bit personal with it ...I liked it! Definitely not my first choice in color, but I thought it looked great (better live than in pics IMO) and still felt "SG" at its core. I didn't think to do a side-by-side at the time, but I should have ...IIRC, it didn't as feel neck-heavy as SGs do (for me, anyway) so I kind of preferred it.

    I like the red one better. On both, I think those cream colored pickup rings stick out like a sore thumb.

    Same here, I like the red better, really shows off her curves! The more I look at it, the sexier it gets. Nice hourglass figure, perky knobs and a sweet bottom end and I'm not talking about the porn in the other tab, LOL. Anyone know if this will become a production model?

    Oh, I hadn't noticed the controls. I don't like that at all. I'd want standard controls and placement.
