Haven't seen this posted here yet... I guess they had some hardware left over... to be honest, I don't mind the way it looks..
Well, this is the same company that decided that the Les Paul needed its pickup selector switch labeled....upside down from the playing position. For sixty years. Apparently we were all clever enough to eventually figure out what the volume and tone knobs did (once they stopped labeling those), but by God, the poker chip must be readable to the audience members.It really does look like a joke. I don't mind the electronics so much, but I can't imagine this being the product of a sane design department. "Hey wouldn't it be cool to have one of each knob we have in stock, on one guitar?" Do they honestly think we can't differentiate between selector switches without having separate colour switch tips? It's already busy enough as it is.
There's an ass for every seat. If you like it, wait until the prices drop and than pounce on it...http://www.andertons.co.uk/blog/guitars/gibson-announce-les-paul-x-2013
looks real. I don't think it's horrible, so sue me...
