O my God!

It's an already slightly old and much discussed reissue which was requested by Gibson's customers after the inital run

How will we live on?


My guess is one day at a time. One day at a time...

The people who requested them?


As much as I dislike this guitar, Gibson's marketing and Gibson in general, the fact that they listened to their customers and responded with this can only be seen as good.


Also, guitars like these are more showpieces than anything else and let's face it, it works. They attract a lot of attention and publicity and people are constantly talking about them.


Companies release quirky and limited edition guitars like this all the time and it seems a good strategy.

To be totally honest, i thought the reverse V was like the wangcaster, just 1 made. They really are ugly guitars, not to mention hard to play. It would just slip off your knee.

The reverse V was a limited run, not a one off.

Whats funny is Gibson listens to there consumers about a reverse flying v (which makes them even more money) but wont lower there prices in general to make them comparable to the quality there putting out into the marketplace. Gotta love gibson and there money hungry ways....
#16
those reverse v's are rather ugly guitars. but i have to agree with that person way up there ^^^ that its a good thing that Gibson are listening to the most important people in their business.

i think the planned huge price hike in Gibsons and Epiphones is much better reason to kill yourself
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

i think its ugly, but i would still kill to have one. just be cool to say

So that you can randomly induce vomiting?

"So I just added a new guitar to my collection."
"Yeah?"
"Yeah. It's that new reverse flyi......."

my god that thing is ugly
SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
