    This should actually be offensive to most people but I love it.

    Doing a quick Google search shows me that there is apparently a SG Zoot Suit in a ton of different colors. Forgive me, I know nothing about Gibsons

    Have you played one though? I also think they look cool, but having tried the SG version, they're heavy as sin and not really great guitars in any other aspect that would make up for the insane weight. If you can afford to have a gimmick guitar, go for it, but I'd stay away from them otherwise.

    I normally don't like multi laminates too much.
    My groovy Daion bass is my only exception.
    I kinda dig the groovy/hippie/Rasta/tie-dye vibe of these guitars.
    I played a Zoot suit SG once, it sounded OK, but was heavy.
    Why "Zoot Suit" though?
    Nothin' Zoot-Suity about it, IMO.
    Maybe if it had a "chain" strap.
    Just sayin'.

    I'm sure I wouldn't like it due to the 24.75" scale, PAF in the bridge and heaviness. But it looks cool.

    If I had carpentry skills a La Cab Zoot Suit would be awesome

    Looks like somebody fed a dog a pack of crayons.

    I think the P90 PAF combo kinda makes this guitar for me. Not sure why but it does...

    I have a Zoot Suit. I'm to be buried in it.
