    If they made the neck solid roasted maple this would be 100x better. Pau Ferro on there makes no sense.

    If the neck PU was a JM instead of a P90 this would at least be interesting. Sigh.

    So are we getting a MIM 'Alternate Universe' guitar every month this year like the US Parallel Universes?

    I think it's pretty cool. I guess I'm in the minority.

    I liked the one with the Jazz Bass body.

    This one, I do not like. This reminds me of those subpar Modern Players from China.

    Maybe not. Only 7 posts so far. No accounting for taste, right? :beer

    I like it too, except for the toggle between the two knobs. Not keen on that location, but I like it otherwise.

    When I was your age, we called it the Ibanez Talman and we liked it.

    hmmm..... well i can see some Indie Rock bands perhaps using this but it doesn't do much for me. agree that a jazzmaster pup might have been a better option.

    Loved it! I really like the direction they are taking, maybe we are not all on board but we are seeing new stuff.
    I could see myself playing a powercaster, looks like my kind of guitar

    I'd try one. It's ugly but it's got all the other stuff I like so if it has a good neck I'd try it.

    It’s not bad. I like the P90/HB combo. The shape actually flows nicely, the mismatched pickups throw it off a bit.
