  1. That's because it's pretty much common knowledge. Most, if not all Gibson guitars FBs have a radius of 12". Fenders have a 14" (flatter) raduis.
  2. ROCK ON! I meant to say "many teenagers"' date=' not "mostly". My bad!
  3. Yes it is, but how many people IN that market (which is comprised of mostly teenagers) are going to be able to afford this guitar? I'm not trying to rain on anyone's' parade, I'm just being realistic, and I know A LOT of people who are into BH...heavily, and THEY don't even like the guitar! The funny thing is, they have the same hang-ups that everyone else has "whats with the all killswitches?". As a matter of fact, I showed a picture of it to a guy I work with who is a die hard, BH fan, and his first reaction was "that is one UGLY LP!", and I was like[blink] . When I told him who's it was (he was used to seeing BH's "Custom" LP), he took another look at it and said "that is still one ugly LP!". As I said, it's a cool looking guitar (killswitches aside), and if it were a standard sized LP it would be that much more cool (I'm a very average sized guy), but I still don't think that they are going to be as popular as some think.
  4. Yes' date=' I was![cool'] Just because somethings produced in small ("Limited") numbers, doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be collectible. Gibson has produced more than a few guitars in relatively small runs (Smartwood Studio, Spotlight Special, etc), and people can't give those things away! Popularity determines collectibility, not quantity, and outside the BH community, these guitars will be nothing more than "novelty" (or "boutique") guitars. The BH sig (as with a number of other Gibson LPs of today) is aimed at a VERY specific market (BH fans), which means they will ONLY be collectible within that market.
  5. In a couple of generations guitars won't even exist' date=' or at least if they do, they will be tuning/playing themselves, and who wants that? As I said before, unless there is a HUGE market for them (from people other than BH fans), they're not going to be very "collectable".
  6. Only problem is, yes they're rare/collectible, but only to a very specific/limited market. Not many serious guitar collectors are hampering for BH guitars. Now the JP, BG, WH, Slash, etc, etc, etc...THOSE will bring in the $$$$, even 30 years from now. The funny thing is, there are still a TON of people who don't even know who BH is, which is another blow to their "collectability". I have to admit, they do look pretty cool though.
  7. The Classic's neck is a tiny bit thinner than the usual '60s Slim-taper, and the Epi Standard (I own both also) is a little thicker than most "slim" necks. And as with ANYTHING, the necks are all different (depending on the person responsible for sanding them at any given time), but have to fall within a certain parameter/set thickness.
  8. The funny thing is' date=' so were the '50s Juniors, where "Junior" = music studends/kids. [img']http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/2938/juniorap.jpg[/img] I'm not trying to compare the quality of an actual Gibson LP Junior to that of the Maestro series, but they were concieved from the SAME principle. But the fact of the matter is, most parents aren't willing to spend upwards of $1,000 for real GLPJ (especially for little kids), when they can get a guitar that [at least] looks like one for close to $700 less.
  9. It's going to take one hell of an oyster, to get enough MOP for that inlay! lol That's AWESOME!
