It's a brand new model 225 prices at about $1400 US, notice the orange peel finish, cheap looking hardware and only two tone/vol pots, guess Gibson thinks their name alone is enough to sell us trash, I've
heard terrible reports about Gibsons quality control in recent years but this is beyond the pale.

Sorry about the huge pics - straight off the auction - but this is a new one, I think. Apart from looking like a massive arse, that neck join appears to be skewed. My bet is a carver with no idea of guitar building has come up with this design.

I guess they took the term "spanking that axe" litteraly

Covering a Washburn with various bass players cut out of magazines. Tasteful. My favorite is "help, I'm trapped between two pickups!"

The knobs alone would have got it in this thread for me (it not being a retro toaster) but the 'Decoupage' job... :shock:

A Hutchins guitar/mando. I'm sure it's useful and all, but not pretty:

Sorry to link to the auction; uploading the pic didn't work for me.
