It doesn't really matter if they've run out of ideas, if they keep the les paul and SG, they're gonna be fine for a long time to come IMO

edit: saw the link, i stand by what i said though. pretty dumb idea for a guitar, they did the same with the flying V (reverse flying V ftw)

Heres what gibson calls as a new design.. This year we will a new guitar we will make the explorer black..... OHHHHHHHH aHHHHHHHHHHH thats never been done before....

Oh... my... God. That's just about the ugliest thing that I have ever seen. Is Gibson honestly trying as hard as they can to lose the respect of guitarists everywhere?

in my opinion they ran out of good ideas in 1952, with the introduction of the les paul. personally I dont like them at all. I think my $1200 schecter plays better than their $3500 sg's.

If they have this much time on their hands to reverse things

WHY DON'T THEY REVERSE THE FIREBIRD BACK TO IT'S ORIGINAL SHAPE?!?!?!?!?

Damn I have been wanting one forever but nowadays it's just like the explorer!!

At first it didn't appear so, but now it's pretty much official. They're are just taking all of their Guitars and flipping them....Wow, how creative (sarcasm)

Well some of the new designs suck comign around (like the Reverse V did), but honestly look at the the Shred X, AMAZING, first Explorer out of the factory with a working tremolo.

Judging from how the Reverse V sold out so quickly, Gibson is jumping on this market of making novelty "Limited Edition" guitars for people with too much money who wanna own something that no-one else really has.

When you've had one idea that's as good as the Les Paul then you don't really need to have any more.

And I think they still have good ideas, the SG Diablo is one of the greatest guitars I have seen recently.
