After seeing countless pathetic attempts of trying to do something "new" and coming out horrible, these





I think these new ones take the cake.

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-Zoot-SG-Electric-Guitar?sku=484926




What the hell is this? A guitar made by a hippie who had an acid trip in Las Vegas?

I wouldn't want one if someone gave them to me. Please. Whoever is making these designs or whoever is passing them needs to be shot. Seriously.

How about make something that will appeal to more players? Like OFR's with locking nuts? Not some 3 grand guitar with a kahler trem with no locking nut. I'm so glad I dropped 3.5 grand on a guitar that won't even stay in tune.

How about a nice thin, satin/tung oil necks, maybe 24 fret models, some tremolos or something that appeals to those kind of players. I'd kill for an explorer with a floyd Rose.

Man.

They still make some of the best guitars; the ES series and high-end les pauls are the best playing guitars i've ever felt or heard

But; they're ridiculously overpriced still.

Just saying Gibson shouldn't invest in garbage guitars when there's ideas already out there that they can be using, and should be.

i like the sg zoot...
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

A.D.D. patients shouldn't be on the internet, and if so shouldn't be trying to insult other people because if you would of read, you'd see it's about the new zoots.

Also, I swear I've seen this thread before...many times before...

A lot of guitar companies could be using other guitar ideas, but dont.

But on a different note, you could easily get a guitar with all you listed that would play very well-without paying for the Gibson name.

Tis' the reason I own a Carvin. I'll get the Buckethead Signature Les paul when it's out. Might have to take out a loan though.

Yeah I totally see the resemblance.

I'd take the second one if they changed the headstock back to the regular explorer one.

i like the zoot suits, and the reverse explorer wouldn't be so bad it it didn't have the headstock. The reverse v is pretty bad though. Anywho, in your "this is what gibson should do" ranting, you basically described what most of the alternative guitar brands are doing, so, just buy one of them.

That natrual wood one is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO awesome looking

I like the zoots, actually (even if they look more like Scribblers). I don't know what they're thinking reversing Vs and Explorers though. As if they weren't uncomfortable enough...
