If Suhr had put 6 a side tuners on their LP rip off would the internet have exploded?
this is a TREMENDOUS question.
for the record, i have no problem with this or the silver sky. and i think anybody who does is out of their minds. you don't like it, don't buy it!
Good question. I'm guessing it's because John Mayer (the guy everyone loves to hate) is involved on the PRS release, and John Suhr (respected TGP member) is involved in the Suhr release.
1) I sensed a bit of tension in that thread, which went nowhere because...
2) John is an active member of this site and was onhand to discuss the guitar.
3) It's also a super limited run, built by John
I've seen this happen before on forums for other hobbies I have - a controversial product generates alot of heat, then when people involved in said product engage in a respectful, non-confrontational manner everything goes in the other direction.
FYI, John has already said he'll be making more Aura's after the original run. The first run is simply made by John himself.
Because what PRS copied they just copied and what they didn't copy they made ugly....
that's a much classier looking headstock than a PRS. if the PRS looked like that i don't think as many would have a problem with it.
Yeah, should have qualified saying it will be very limited for the first year.
At $8000, I think it'll be limited each subsequent year as well, at least compared to the Mayer Super Strat®. That'll limit the outrage.
Wow that is a sexy guitar.
It won’t be $8000 once John stops making them personally. I’d use the term cash grab or retirement plan but then I’d probably be destroyed by a nuclear bomb of nerd rage.
Thank God he didn't make a Stratopaul. The basic shape of the head stock looks a lot like a Thorn.
That would only make it similar to a Les Paul XPL, but without the double cutaway.
Personally I am equally as bothered by one as I am by the other.
Wow, I've been playing since '90 and did not know such a beast existed. After a quick google I washed my eyes out with acid.
EDIT: I found this white beastly beauty (custom shop one off)
I don't think so because 6 a side would make it a 12 string and Gibson didn't make a 12 string LP as far as I know.
The day has come. It's Finally warmoth's turn to sue somebody.
Well...can you buy it with "Thornbuckers"?
Yeah, it's purely horrid.
Who is this “we” you refer to? There are over 160,000 TGP members and like 0.01% are pissed about the Silver Sky.
Does that work? I only ever set it on my tongue.
