    'Hideous' is being kind - that was 'bean-counting' to an extreme level.

    I love the pick guard. This is why traditional guitar companies never try anything even slightly new.

    Yea. Tomorrow most likely. I think I’ll go with the brown one. I love those lower-priced Gibsons.

    I don’t even know what the pick guard should look like. Nothing about it bothers me.

    Maple neck too. And I'd like to see under that pickguard. Not much of a "Tribute".

    It allows Gibson to make it a pre-loaded pickguard, saving them a few bucks at the assembly stage. I kinda hate it too, but if I found one used for $500... maaayybe.

    LP Juniors really ought to be a low-priced staple in the Gibson lineup.

    Buyer beware. If this new one has quality comparable to Gibson's other recent low priced guitars like that Firebird and M series, it's going to be trash. Not something I'd buy before putting my hands on it.

    It's a Gibson, sorry but I wouldn't have it for free.

    Also, it's all top-routed, saving them a second spin through the router to carve out the control cavity.

    I'm getting an overwhelming 'Norlin' vibe from this one. Does it have a volute?

    Well, dangit. I hadn’t read the fine print. I just assumed it would be all mahogany.

    Maple neck is a deal breaker for me.

    No interest in the Gibson. But I'm really tempted to get this blue Affinity Squier for $179 and dropping a mini HB in the neck (if they fit w/o extra routing).

    It seems reasonably priced to me. 800 dollars won’t touch most made in USA instruments.

    No neck pickup kills it for me. I love the versatile tones from a good neck pickup far more than having just a bridge pickup.

    And, I’m sort of content with this
