My Midtown Custom was 1080 Euro

Perfect, 50% off. They'll be 599 and 699 by the end of the year. That's how the Robot Studios went, and they were a great value at their blowout price.
Are you sure that's not MSRP though? Seems insane that they'd try to sell these at the same price as a Midtown.

I love 335's. I don't like this guitar. It looks unfinished and rather cheap looking. A real 335 stands out from across the room.

With a neck pickup this might be a winner, especially if they brought back the control cavity route for all the people who just want to buy cheap and swap pickups. But with no neck pickup its just missing the point.

Well Ferrari has, T-shirts, keychains, underwear and pretty much everything else with their logo. Why not Gibson with lazy guitars?

Sad thing is though I played the new LPJ and LP sudio and both were pretty damn nice. Now I see this shit.

WTFH GIBSON?

I just watched the Premier Guitar NAMM video of the Gibson stuff. Apparently the CEO designed this model

In short: meh. I love the sound of a real 335, I wouldn't touch that thing with a ten foot pole.

And I agree with the comment that it looks cheap looking. It looks like it should have 'First Act' on it or something, and be sold for $50 at Walmart.

I guess I have weird taste, because I still really like it. I've always been a fan of the minimalist 1 pup Gibson guitars. I guess it's my gain, though, because a low demand will probably drive the price way down. But that new Nighthawk thing is pretty cool, as well.

maybe at the end of it's life cycle. They'll still be expensive, or at least overpriced for what they are, when they first come out
