    I dig the Roswell Rhoads and actually owned one a long time ago (in a galaxy far away) but this looks more like that George Lynch V from a few years back.

    Wanna know what's weird/funny?

    KXM just posted a picture on their instagram of Lynch using his Super V.

    Jesus...

    I would rather invest 4500$ in a kickstarter to hire a terminator to be sent back to 1984 and assassinate Gibson's current "big new idea" guy...

    I'm actually not mad about this - paintjob looks sick. Reminds me of Niel Tiemann's Dunable V. Would I pay $4,500 for it? Hell no, but the majority of us probably aren't buying Gibsons new anyways, right?

    I'd rather spend $4000+ dollars on my own custom than this pile of so-so desperation Gibson is passing off.
