My thoughts exactly. I liked them then and I like them now, though I am not about to drop 2k on one.

Also, that Firebird X... :facepalm:
Dang it Gibson, last time you did a 'futuristic' Firebird like that it sold like shit and everyone hated it, why will you not learn??

The Rainbow might be a bit much and I don't care for the headstock
or the weird fucking placement of the selector switch (one might get into that?)
but come on!
black & orange
Blue & red

those seethrough humbuckers


I mean if it were some boutique guy getting those layers from say old skateboards
there would be ooohs & aaahs
but since it's Gibson trying just a little bit something different
there's panties & bunches

maybe Gibson was ahaed of the times those 10 years ago,
but to get that same reaction now?
how forward thinking ILF, chapeau! :lol:


I think if they copied Prisma guitars better and went with the really thin stripe guitars they make, it could look amazing - see the guitar that Pete Jonas is playing below - I'd love one of those. Sadly they cost five times more than my car is worth :(


The fat areas of crude colour just look messy to me.... I think lots of really thin colourful lines could be lovely though.

Here's another one by Prisma I like:

I like the pattern on this one, but a Gibson without fret markers and naked pickups is just weird. Also $4,000 for a company with Gibson's current reputation is highway robbery.

Other Materials
The glue is a proprietary Type 1 glue that forms an everlasting bond, and enhances the tonal characteristics of the body.


I can't let this go. "Everlasting bond?" How about----

This proprietary Type 1 glue forms an eternal bond, and will continue to love your instrument long after you've stopped.

Prisma! that is what they were called...
That one is super diggable.

and Pete Jonas...
he'd deserve to play guitars worth ten times my car
yet would still sound awesome on one worth a tenth




I should hit up Gibson if I can get some of that glue for my mind :lol:
aural conjunctions on SC

I hate moodswings are awesome! Oh, and I usually post when I'm way too tired...

"TONAL CHARACTERISTICS" is some shit the dads at TGP would eat up, yet debate for 90 pages.

For anyone looking for a harmonic trem, vibe, or a poor man's Leslie, this sounds gorgeous.

Looks like Fender hired the master executive chefs from Taco Bell to design guitars now. Cool.

I think these upcoming Pladask Elektrisk projects were briefly discussed a bit last year, but here's a recent update.

pladaskelektrisk We have work to do! Look out for new stuff this winter #granularsynthesis #workshop #bandorg #cncmachine? #2018

And if you haven't visited the Beigel thread recently, the Mu-Tron brand is making a comeback with a Bi-Phase relaunch.

It appears Radikal Technologies is bringing a paraphonic module to NAMM. More details to come.

Banana sighting on Reverb (?!?)

[/quote]

Does anyone know what Bass guitar that is? I'm in the market for a new bass, can't really make up my mind and I'm looking for cool looking/sounding stuff that's not the usual fender/musicman...:idk:

Edit: Nm, found it, Ibanez Blazer. Not too easy to come by, at least not around here :/

Aesthetically it’s pretty close to that Musicman Caprice? Those are a pretty cool option for a passive Fender style deal with different looks. I think they do a Sterling version too?
