The amount of stuff in here is cool, keep it coming if there's more out there.

I've never had that problem with my 76. Maybe it's something to do with how I wear my strap or my posture when I play it sitting. It's heavy as shit and I think that's awesome. I've also got a double cut that's contoured on the back and chambered. It's kinda like playing a helium balloon which is cool in it's own right but I prefer the heavy slab of wood. Check out a DC if you can I love mine.

I suppose.

Though in all honestly I'm not a fan of doublecuts.

The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra Pros have a tummy cut. Can't fathom why you would want one of those abominations though, a Les Paul with a tummy cut just isn't right. (I actually mentioned this just yesterday in the "things that annoy you thread")

^ I guess? I mean, I guess I can understand that, but that's not anywhere near as bad as say, an LP with a bolt on neck.

And in any case, the majority of the guitars listed here aren't actually LPs, so I think they're safe.

@gregs1020 See, you just want to post pics of your SG, don't you?

I consider them equally blasphemous. Also Les Pauls with Floyds. (Or any bridge that isn't tune-o-matic/Nashville or a bigsby)

I don't know how contoured they are, but the GMP Pawn Shops look pretty flat and non-slabby.

LOL!!! It's my favorite actually... xD
OT: I'd love a high end ART too! I like the AR2000 actually but it's not the same.
