i thought they looked pretty cool, but lost their appeal to me after about 2 mins, it looks too fake, like the red swirl paintjob i see on ALOT of cheaper RR jacksons around here

I'd definitely have to see it in person to judge it, but those pics look pretty badass.
#7
I like it. I couldn't pull off something that fancy (I'm more of a black or white or worn gold type), but more power to anybody who can.
#8
i feel like if i was to ever buy one i would have to get five of each color lined up next to each other see which one's played the best. than go for looks. cause they definitely vary too much.

Yeah, I just read about those in my MusiciansFriend magazine, those look pretty sweet, wouldn't mind getting one, but I has no money.

They are only making 600 of them, 300 in green and 300 in blue, so you'll be lucky if you ever get to see one.
#10
Wonder if they have any better then a studio model? The finish is beautiful!

Why is no one talking about the guitar? It is not made in a 3rd world country or cheaper then dirt is why.

lolwut?

I actually think it's a cool finish. (I'm not a fan of those Jackson swirls anyway)
If I liked Gibson necks and it wasn't that expensive I might've thought of getting one.
#23
It's an LP with a fake top. What's so special?


EDIT: Ugh, it's got a 490R in the neck and a 498T. Horrible pups. I think they put those in Faded SG's and LP studios.

I've seen them before. Want one.

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

I think they are technically Les Paul Studios.

Honestly, they look pretty nice. They're overpriced though - I could buy a Custom for that kind of money (If I looked hard enough).
Ceci n'est pas une signature.

Ugh. Really? I would not want to be seen on stage with one of those, or with anyone who had one. Bleh.

how is it a fake top its just a dyed maple cap. whats fake about it... not like its a paper print under clear coat.

and i'm pretty sure faded studios come with burst buckers. thats what my friend has in his faded studio and i think its sounds pretty damn good.

first time in a while i can say that that looks like a decent Gibson

problem being you're paying a shit ton of money for not that much, and Gibsons are overpriced anyways. they are nice but not worth the cash IMO

lmfao.

this is the same finish as on the firebird X, except everyone said it was a retarded finish when they saw it on the firebird X..
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I think you mean the cheap redburst they had on them at first(which they also put on the $200 Epi Special IIs). o_o The swirl finish is the only thing I saw anyone compliment the Firebird X about so far...XD Anyways, I love the green finish, if it came in lefty I'd probably be all over it, and that's saying a lot since I'm not normally a LP person. XD

Fake top?

"Dressed in the minimalist Studio style, these guitars nevertheless offer a stunning new look in two commemorative high-gloss nitrocellulose finishes: Marbelized Blue Swirl Burst, and Marbelized Green Swirl."

"At its core, this model remains pure Les Paul. Just like the most revered Les Paul Standards of all time, this Les Paul Studio starts with the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top."

Also, the Faded SG's come with a 490T, which is much worse than the 498T. I think one of their SG standard models come with a 490R/498T model

"worse"? or "lower output"? isn't the 498T just an overwound version of the 490T?

how do you define a guitar for a female?
how about one that whines and has trouble with feedback?

Both. :P

490T is too mid-range heavy. 498T has punchier lows, for teh CHUGGA CHUGGAZ. So if that defines overwound...

These are made in horrible taste. like a hurricane guitar to commemorate Katrina, or a tsunami for japan. painted on furnace for Nazi concentration camps.

They look kind of cool, apart from the neck, looks to out of place.
