I think I would rather just save my extra 1000 bucks or so and tune my guitar myself.

hey, do ALL of you play guitar to prove your masculinity or something? That purple is sick.


Get over it. Girls will still talk to you even if you admit to liking purple...unless you're really a closet-queer.

I've already got one of each in purple pre-ordered. God damn them for only making it the Studio and Special versions of the LP and SG though. I mean christ, the whole point of the 'robot' feature sis for the help it gives when gigging, but you'd never use a Studio or Special model in a gig. Kind of defeats the point.

I've been praying for purple SGs and LPs for years though. There's also due to be metallic green versions of each, but we've already had green LPs before (yuck) and a green SG doesn't appeal to me.

And yes, I really do genuinely love the purple colour. Though the pickguard on the SG could do with being just flat black, I think, and the LP could do with either a white or black pickguard added. Easy mods to do. I'll be changing the pickups in both anyway so might as well get the pickguards done at the same time. Should look superb.
And for the record, no, I am not gay. But I do like pink too, for what it's worth. Style > 'masculine' stupid homophobic fear of colours.


They shouldn't be saying 'extremely limited quantities' either. Though Gibson have only produced one run of each so far, that just means this first shipment is limited - but then, the same could be made of all shipments. The Studio/Special robots though are here to stay and aren't, officially, limited edition guitars. In another month, more will be made, and the month after that, and after that... so there's actually no rush.



Also: haha, christ look at the price on musician's friend. You Americans are being ripped off. I'm paying not much more than the price of just one of those ($2200-ish for each of those = about £1100, I'm paying £1460) for both TOGETHER from an actual STORE. And normally we Brits have to pay twice what you guys have to pay... seems the world's gone backwards for this one.
Or, more realistically, stores here know the Special and Studios are just cheap guitars, and the new electronics aren't worth that much more. Suits me damn fine though compared to spending $2200~ each (which'd be what, totaling about £3000 over here for both? Now that's a helluva rip-off).



[quote="'']There clearly running out of ideas


How long do you think it will be till we se a reverse les paul, or even, SG?Reverse SGs have already happened.. sort of. There have been SGs made that have the regular SG double cuts, and then at the other end, duplicate cut outs on the rear too, so both ends are the same. It looks kind of like a simpler version of the ESP AX shape. It's actually pretty awesome.



And anyone who has a problem witht he purple colour... go take it up with Prince. You just know he's going to be using an army of these now.

Yeah...I thought Prince too when I saw them. Not for me though.

Realistically though, I think the only reason for these non traditional colour schemes is so that anyone that has one can't be mistaken for having a non-robot LP or SG. Give them a while and they'll probably have more choices. I coudn't see owning one, but to each their own.

It is a neat bit of technology though. I'm sure that people originally received electronic tuners the same way.
