    There's a picture somewhere where the Gibson workers attached one of those Norlin-era "Mark" acoustic necks to a rectangular refrigerator vegetable drawer in response to a directive to "explore modern plastic body materials."

    Edit: Found it! "For The Win !!!! beginning at 1:15 baybee!

    This thread is like a timeline of bad decisions.

    Tell me about it. There was a '68 or '69 goldtop hanging on the wall next to it when I bought the L6-S in 1978. It was $50 cheaper, but I just had to have something different...:bonk

    One of the all-time great moments in history that I would like to have witnessed was the unveiling of the "crisper drawer" acoustic at the Norlin board meeting.

    What's happening with this guitar? Are they still trying to sell it?

    I really like those Kalamazoo mustang/melody maker/hagstrom things. They were pretty cheap & funky but cool.

    I'd like a Corvus. (No, don't offer to sell me yours, I don't have the money these days.) Supposedly it was intended to be a headless design, with the tuners in the body cutout a la a BC Rich 10 string, but Gibson chickened out.

    I posted this in another thread but it belongs here as well.
    Presenting the Les Paul Signature. Released by Gibson and Re-Released by Epiphone. This is what could happen if your guitars don't practice safe sex and have an offspring. I've decided to post a life sized photo this time:

    Surprised no one seems to have mentioned the 80's or early 90's (i think mid 80's) Gibson "Victory". A fender meets gibson affair that failed miserably.
