it looks albino.

don't like LPs like that, with a carved top and minimal hardware.

i dig it, with the exception of the bridge, i think it would be better with a standard LP bridge.. as opposed to just the wrap around.

All that way towards minimalist perfection and still with the shitty 'speed' knobs.

my thoughts: I'm assuming this is not gibson? they got the shape right, so that's good. would be great with a pickguard.

and wraparound bridges ruel. but it would be cooler if it was just the straight tailpiece style.

and yes, speed knobs suck balls.

Kinda cool, looks as if they were going for a LP standard carve top body and a LP jr hybrid.

Minimalist slab grunt is why there are LP Jrs. Carve tops need not apply. It's like fitting a Tommy gun with a laser scope.

I don't get it... although it looks nice, I feel that if you're going to go for the fanciness of a carved top etc., then you might as well have two pickups.

Hotrod, post the link and I'll translate the specs into English.

Can't say I like the guitar too much, but I would totally rock a tommy gun with a laser scope!

I know that Agile used to make one of these, although it possibly had a TOM rather than a wraparound; it's not on their site any more, though.

Looks a little too close to one of these things. Not enough face furniture.

It's a Gibson custom shop guitar. The poster's father-in-law paid 2900 Euros for it, and the poster says that the clean sound is great but he prefers the look of his "BACH" guitar (some European brand I'm guessing?)
