Anyone know what they are?
(down on the bottom row)
i think its gibson's incorporation of the PRS heel, carve on the cutout. kinda like what they did with the neal schol les paul?
Looks like a slim-line LP type. To me, the name suggests that they may have put in some kind of digital processing tools or synth output, something. Guess we have to wait and see.
It's a Gibson PRS copy!
yeah, I suppose you can kinda see the super-sloped heel in the pictures.
We've seen a couple of pix already and Alex Lifeson's been playing one live for a while.
The heel is much friendlier than the PRS, and it's Floyded. Pretty cool imho - others will feel VERY differently.
Tummy cuts and smooth heels, sorry for the poor pic, but you can kinda see.
What the heck is the ultratone shown on that page? Looks like a National resoglass or something. Weird.
I'd like to see a LP with a "standard" tremolo, like the PRS's.
it is about time they started putting floyds on LPs!!!!
Thanks TC, great photos. I had no idea it had a tummy cut, that's cool.
So, after 50 something years... we have a redesign of the Les Paul? Not only that, but it seems to be in the right direction? Crazy.
Yeah. I really think that Strats, Tele's and Les Pauls had it right from the gate and think it's most of the time a silly (though neccessary for the compaines) thing for them to release so many models trying to drum up new interest. But, I will say, after giving lessons in a chair all day with a Les Paul I damn sure have cursed them for the lack of a tummy cut.
Not bashing new ideas by any stretch of the means. My experience being that most of the "improvements" on the original designs are not to my liking.
