I like the corvus/futura, and that sg z, actually I like a lot of the Gibson "abominations". My favorite of all time the V2,
That's not a Futura, this is:I own a couple weirdos from the 80s. A Futura in "Ultraviolet" like this one, but mine has a tuneomatic:
I also have a Corvus II in orange, which is the bolt neck guitar with the same shape. The pic is a Corvus III:
And I DO use them for blues gigs....occasionally.
I'll drink to that. I always wash my hands before playing too. Helps out with string life and keeps grime off the neck.Major props to guys that keep their equipment in immaculate condition for 27 years for other possible owners down the road. Am the same way myself; guitar is cleaned regularly and put it in the case when not in use. I also never wear jewelry or belt buckles that would scratch them up. Here's to you guys that do the same...
That's hilarious.I'll drink to that. I always wash my hands before playing too. Helps out with string life and keeps grime off the neck.
OT: I was in a band of misfits a couple of years and the singers drunk 20-something girlfriend comes up between sets and says to me in a snotty voice: "How old is that guitar? It looks new." I told her that I bought it in the 80s, it's older than she was and I that take good care of my stuff. She got offended, stomped off to get yet another drink with the singer and the bass player kinda loudly stage whispers (to no one in particular) "It's in better shape too!"
Not Gibson but here's another one to add fuel to the "stick to the classics" argument... the regrettable FlipOut:That's hilarious.
Every once in a while you see someone at the forums who derides the guitar manufacturers for not doing anything different. I'll copy and paste this thread next time I see one. It's a good case study in why they don't.
I have the bass version, the short scale KB1, with a gigundous sidewinder pickup (the futtbucker?) at the neck. Between the pickup's heavy wind, neck position, and the low string tension from the short scale, it need's Doc Brown's woofer froim Back to the Future.Not branded Gibson, but made by them.
This was like an SG...another model looked like a Fender Mustang.
Bodies made of Pressboard or something.
