LOL

My guess is "Year of the Dog" model for the Asian market?


Well, the dog part is certainly applicable.

I’d love to smash the life out of that thing as a stage guitar, 50 gigs a year....probably look cool then. The first 25 gigs the rest of the band would be taking the piss tho.

I think Pete Townsend should be allowed to smash the life out of it and get the job done in one gig :sarc:

I think it's the Chinese Year of the Actual Fuck.

I bet when that one came down the line the blokes in the factory were thinking: "Shit. I really need to update my CV..."

I’d have wiped my willy on it to give it that real cheesy smell to match the look

It’s a great example of where Gibson has ended up.

When every other industry is pandering to the huge Chinese market, why are we surprised that Gibson would try to as well?

Btw the price is linked to the Chinese market as well - 6 for luck and 9 for year of the dog :) and double each of those for profits obviously ;)

Can basically guarantee that no Chinese's gonna buy it haha, many would argue that it's cultural appropriation.

They're doing fine in China with historics and CC's.
