    Ooh, my lord, is that ever PRETTY!

    And here's his Son and Grandson presenting it to the world


    I was expecting them to launch into "Johnny B Goode" but hey, no problem.

    As expensive as a Custom Shop Gibson usually is.

    I'm pretty sure Ted Nugent has already bought one.

    I'd love to play one and I'm anxious to know the price. This is great that they're bringing this out!
    A Bigsby would be cool!

    I had a chance to buy a used ES350T in 1967 for $250.00 (including OHSC, of course). Just like that except PAFs. Took me a day to get my side of the deal lined up, and it got away.

    Very cool guitar. Like a curly maple Byrdland with a full size neck.

    Well, it's nice to see son and grandson on stage for this presentation, and kinda cute to see 'em play.
    Maybe it sounded different live, but the combination of youtube and phone playback rendered a buzzy, over blown mess. My guess - a little more headroom, a little less drive, and we could have had a Very Special Moment.
    What I got sounded a lot like blooz daddy night at the local jam-bar (minus a very important piano & bass).
    YMMV
    Peace - Deeve

    Finally! A tribute guitar for a player worth paying tribute to!

    Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' roll!

    I'm really hoping I can get one of those. I'm also hoping it won't require selling a kidney.

    Looks like a short scale, a la Byrdland.

    It should be the ES350T was the cheaper non carved version of the Byrdland. 23.5 inch scale.

    looks nice from the back too.

    My bootleg byrdland (a "King") has that swooped "fadeaway" on the back of the headstock into the neck, a very nice detail to add.

    I love that thing.

    It's just like this one

    ...and granted, it's humbuckers (and P-90s are THE coolest pickups ever), BUT, I wouldn't think of changing these stock buckers out, they sound so damn good. And yes, it's a florentine cutaway, not a venetian, but, the florentine gives a bit of that Thorogood/Uncle Ted vibe :cool:

    That's pretty. I'm not a big fan of stingers, but I like the rest of the design.

    That is beautiful. I love the stinger and the figuring on the maple.

    I know I can't afford it right now, but man...

    Wow, what a terrible bit of video for announcing such a nice guitar. Who's the immature ego-shredder?
