1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    I don't think I'd ever dare to play this monstrosity outside my house...
    Am I right?

    While I agree with you, it is not the ugliest guitar I have seen, but it definitely is in the top 5. ;)

    Not sure why they would put Billie Jean King on a 2006 U.S. Open guitar ... but yes, this guitar has bigger problems. :D

    WhoTF would do this? And if it came from the factory, what was Gibson thinking?

    Yes - until the rare 'leprosy collage' LP surfaces.

    It would definitely look better refinished in an 1980s van theme.

    There is no discernible connection between tennis and any form of music, much less rock music. But by golly that doesn't stop Gibson from trying to make one up so they can build something hideous.

    I’d buy it cheap and refinish it as a proper Gold Top then rock it all night long.

    This would be a hilarious guitar for a punk or alt-rocker.
    I would take this over a car-themed guitar, I know nothing about tennis.
