    What do you think?

    GAS Attack!!!! (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome - or Gibson Acquisition Syndrome ). I wish these things weren't so expensive. I think they look pretty nice. Purists won't like them because they are a "classic" look, but I'm digging them. Full disclosure - I wouldn't plan on buying one until they come out with a much cheaper version..

    Nice. It reminds me of a Reverend, but the controls are different.

    Gibson Modern Double Cut. Interesting guitar - way too expensive.

    I've always wanted a Gibson carved-top DC. I like the access to the neck it gives.

    I love the looks of the guitar, and I'll bet it sounds great. As a player, I'd pass on it because of the upper cutaway and buy a regular Gibson DC.

    Looks like they are trying to out-PRS PRS. Interesting since PRS out-Gibsons Gibson!

    At least it isn't a Corvus.

    Unfortunately that the body on the Corvus looks like a really angry Pac man chomper.

    I'd play the hell out of it though.

    I swear that the looks are growing on me, not like mold, but in a positive sense... ha ha

    Seriously, all that room at the neck--couldn't really call the guitar a cutaway. I like having that area free, which is why if I could get a lefty carved top LP DC, I'd never play a regular Les Paul again. PRS....no, but thank you.
