Royalties paid to Jackson and/or Neal Schon (Schon guitars, which were made by Jackson)?
Only $4.5K MSRP
Star Fleet badge guitar, just don’t wear a Red Shirt when beaming down to the planet to play... does it come with a Tricorder or Phaser?
Oops, some geek slippage there.
A swing and a miss!
Lol what a joke. I thought that maybe this was an April fool's but it's January...
I could dig it, but there are two points that bother me:
1. Why not use the opportunity to introduce a headstock that pulls the string straight across the nut?
2. The price is ridiculous. This is a flat topped instrument in opaque finish with off-the-shelf hardware, so there is literally nothing to justify the price above the current standard V.
Kinda dig it. I guess. Definitely wouldn't pay for it. I mean, it doesn't have any of my obvious disqualifiers, but...if I won it in a contest, I'd probably play it before I flipped it.
Or hold out until it became a collector's item.
It seems weird when Gibson decides to release a guitar based on someone else's (Jackson's) take on a Gibson guitar.
Like when Fender issued all the Ibanez copies.
I would play it but it's not that awesome a Jackson rr will do that for me and they are dreaming to think I'd pay 4k for that. Maybe 1500 to 2k out the door. And for that price I'd get another brand for a metal v.
continuing to give guitar players the OPPOSITE of what we (mostly) want.
and Larivee IIRC
Neither were like that though.
I admire their willingness to try new things but most of their efforts are so bizarre and unappealing even when trying to keep an open mind
Seems like market research is totally lacking at Gibson when it comes to new products. They could save a lot of money by investing in a little of that.
From what I hear, Crack can get expensive, so they are just making sure they can fuel future 'design innovations'.
