I like it, though I'm not a Gibson basher...

Looks sweet. Love the cool minimalist vibrato !

The one with the pinstripes looks pretty cool.
That said, I expect to see these blown out cheap in November. I just don’t see many people buying a new body design with a newish vibrola design when the current trends are vintage, vintage, and vintage.

Never considered myself a Gibson "basher", but I DO expect to get value for my hardwon $$$. IMHO, too many times Gibson's QA has been questionable - at BEST. As to the design? Other, "smaller" names (Ibanez and Samick come to mind) have promoted similar products in the not too distant past and seen flat sales ... time will tell. Personally, I'm NOT even excited, much less in love.

I'm a Gibson fan, and I think they look ok. Different for sure.

I like Gibsons and I think that thing is fug.

The Vibrola is from the late 1950s, in fact it's the one on my 1969 SG Standard, and also used on the ES355, Firebird VII, Flying V and a few others of that vintage ... vintage enuff for ya?
