Does anyone have any opinions on this guitar? I've been offered one that I might buy myself for xmas, so want to know a bit more about it than you can get from just reading reviews.

I'll obviously try it before buying, but I've never experienced one so I'm curious about what to expect, what the Gibson QC was like back then, how they usually play/sound etc.

Note: If purchased, this will be done purely on a whim, I'm not really actively shopping for a new guitar so not looking for alternative suggestions.

I never tried one, but it looks great. Reminds me of a PRS Starla, but less "pointy". I'd buy one based on aesthetics alone.

I own one. It's a good guitar, the neck is a bit beefier than I like, but it still plays ok and sounds good. Fretwork is good, the neck is overall very good quality construction wise.

I think most people either love them or hate them.

It's definetely worth checking out, in my opinion.

Sounds promising so far - have to admit, I'm not 100% sold on the aesthetics, other than I like the idea of having something that's a bit different in my collection.

Always like a nice beefy neck though, I assume that means it's the 50s profile or similar?

had one back in the day. really liked the pickups. neck is bolt on and really didn't remind me that much of any LP profile. the body isn't wood not that you'd really notice. I'd say it's definitely a try before you buy type of guitar.

Damn - it was sold by the time I got home from work & contacted the guy

I want one, to make myself a guitar like Thurston Moore




That looks like something I would've mangled when I was 14. Dude can't even refin right.

That Thurston Moore guitar does remind me of something I've often wondered though.

The strings are wrapped round over the tailpiece, but usually I see the strings just passed straight through to the bridge.

Does it matter or make a difference?

Cant tell if serious.


If so then look up top wrapping. People have been doing it forever.

More curious than serious

Never had a guitar that came like it, so I've never done it when restringing. Never looked into it before either, it just sprung into my mind when I saw the pic.
