I really like this.
Right? Just like the epitome of Gibson weirdness.
I remember when this one came out. I always wondered why they put one knob so far away from the other. Like it is nearly falling off the edge of the guitar. WTF?
^ I really like these except for the tailpiece. SG with single coil in neck = awesome
ES-120T, always thought it looked like melted plastic was spilled on it by accident
hmm... & here I thought I was in the minority when I posted it.
I fell in love with an SG-Z waaaay back when. A local shop that I used to frequent around the time they were released had one in white that just played perfectly. It's pretty much been my 'dream' SG ever since.
Maybe the this is the island of misfit Gibsons
Come on, someone had to post this sooner or later!
Sorry, that guitar is freaking cool... would love to own something off the wall from Gibby (old school).
My first Les Paul was an early '80s XR-1. It was essentially a predecessor to the Studio model but mine was cherry sunburst with binding on the top of he body, dot inlays, Dirty Fingers pickups and a coil tap. Unfortunately, I don't have any good photos of it, otherwise I would post them here. I do remember that Steve Clark from Def Leppard played a toboacco sunburst XR-1 in videos during the band's Pyromaina period.
I meant the SG Z. Sorry! The SG X was actually pretty hip.
give it a black pickguard and a cherry red finish and everybody would love it.
Oh wow.. Can someone please tell me what model gibson or les Paul or whatever this is. It's sweeeeeet
You all would not believe just how many of these were 100 percent Henry Juszkiewicz's ideas, commanded and demanded into existence as a couple of long-suffering Gibson USA luthiers sat there and took notes because he didn't want a single detail wrong.
I swear to God.
I'll add my voice to the others. This is a cool guitar.
Here it is if anyone wants to buy it
Ah I see some other members of the Corvus club . . .
I gig it from time to time. Usually turns some heads . . .
I almost bought one of these new because of their ads claiming that it could sound like a whole bunch of other guitars... but then I played one.
I actually like the Corvus shape, and I am NOT an emo kid
The Victory looks really snazzy, although the strap button position would take a lot of getting used to after an SG.
The Les Paul DC400 XPL in the OP looks sweet to me except for the XPL headstock. With a Flying V or Firebird headstock, it would look great.
There's a set-neck Hondo II LP copy that keeps popping up on Ebay with almost the exact same double cut body shape . It has the usual 3+3 headstock and that works nicely with the proportions.
