Urgh. I can't say I'm excited for it. Gibson doing a superstrat? Next thing you know, Fender will do an ES-335!

Gibson has done super strats before. Have a look at the M series from the early 90s.

Meh. Looks like an old Doublecut-ish prototype. Or something very well reliced. Even if it's a new model, presumably a bolt-on mahogany with humbuckers, so keeping in Gibson's lane.

If I were Fender or Suhr I'd still be sleeping pretty soundly.

Whatever happened to these. I liked the look of them.

Just needs the proper switch location and 4 knobs.

I played one of those in the back room at K Rd Rockshop. I thought it was great. They just needed someone well known and famous to play one, to get exposure.

Would've liked the toggle to be on the top cutaway though.
