Ehrmagerd, those new Alvarez Grateful Dead tribute guitars are UHHH-GLEEE! I'm all for a tribute instrument related to an artist or band having some kind of special logo or decorative feature; the 1973 dime embedded in the fretboard of the Martin Jim Croce model is a cool little nod to "Operator". "You can keep the dime...". The Alvarez things are hideous. They look like cheap repro band posters always for sale at record shows. Alvarez used to make a Bob Weir model that was a fine guitar. I was excited that maybe the new anniversary tribute instruments would be like that. These remind me of the cheapo Silvertone acoustics that Paul Stanley had his ugly mug plastered on. Nobody actually plays those things... they scream "gullible fanboy" and you can't be taken seriously playing a guitar the big design and selling point of which is the chance to stare at some other band's logo or someone's face. What "tribute model" instruments do you own or just love or loathe?
