I could put up with the body shape, if only it was a regular top and all in the same style. :P

I actually kinda like the shape, but they need to fire whoever came up with the idea of giving it only half a maple top. I mean really, what the ****?

nope, but the small part of me that's not saying, " Ewwwwwwwwwww that's gankin' " is actually wondering if it might be quite nice.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

I think I'd like it more if it had a 3+3 headstock rather than the 4+2.

I think we all came to the conclusion that the shape itself is not so ugly and even somewhat fresh and daring, the thing that really makes the guitar unattractive is the bound V-maple-top.

I think it would look 100% better if they had reversed the color scheme for the quilting and the rest of the body- IOW, so that the area bounded by the "V" was not quilted, and the area outside was.

The paint job makes it look like the reverse V, a les paul, and a strat were able to produce a single offspring.

Nah, I like it even with the V maple top.

It's the headstock that ruins it.

It's the color scheme that ruins it for me. The maroon on the body just doesn't look right with the flame top on the "V". Here's a quick photochop job. I think something like this would have looked a lot better. I'd buy one

Now that looks awesome.


Lemon, the 4+2 headstock is sort of an EBMM trademark, but yeah it's not the best suited to this style.

I know the 4+2 is a trademark, but I'd much rather they abandoned it for a guitar or two.

Imagine if the Flying V or the explorer had the open book headstock.

the explorer looks stupid enough with a pointy(ish) 3+3 headstock. The classic one would look even worse.

Huh, I'd rock it, even with the headstock.

That color scheme needs to go, though. Maybe straight stealth black.

so do i. i was more agreeing with the general point that gibson changed its traditional headstock to suit different guitars, and that that worked well.

Honestly, if they changed the color scheme and got rid of that terrible V, I'd be all over this. Having said that... I'll stick with the JP models and the Axis models, thanks.

Would look better with a 3x3 headstock, but that wouldn't be very Music Man-ish. I'd still love to try one out. They do great work. I do agree with some others that the black/tobacco looks 100x better than the one on the EB/MM site.

Wow. I disagree with most, and actually think it looks sick. Has a retro 50's-60's vibe going.

I'd buy one!
