From those great innovators over at Gibson Guitar Corporation…
1. Start with a 1958 design originally intended to show you weren’t just a stodgy old guitar company being shown up by the likes of upstart Leo Fender.
2. Turn the guitar body 180 degrees.
3. Stick a neck in the vee’s crotch.
4. Proclaim it “a daring move” and “a bold new take on a groundbreaking classic”.
Thankfully only 400 of these
abominations guitars will be produced. If we’re lucky they’ll be vacuum sealed and ferreted away in a collector’s climate controlled room – never to be seen again…
For real innovation and daring, I invite you to examine the works of the various guitar makers – electric, acoustic and bass – featured throughout this site. In sharp contrast to marketing propaganda about the Gibson Reverse Flying Vee, luthiers like Chris Forshage, Jerome Little, Rick Toone, Leo Burrell and Jerome Barde truly represent state of the art thought in guitar design.
