    I have a delta wing R36 7 string (the one from the NAMM debut. And a Gitler is also on my bucket list. We have identical (bad) taste!

    Still, that new era Gitler is killer looking. If I were a billionaire I would totally get one. (And, of course, do Tony Stark type stuff, unlike every actual billionaire, save Elon Musk.) Short of that, I’ll have a tough time rationalizing it, because it doesn’t even look playable.

    That's the back. It makes a bit more logical sense when you see it hanging on a person... But only just.

    I mean, what is there to dislike about a design so minimal, it looks like a cartoon cat ate a guitar and pulled this out its mouth afterward.

    i dislike the gittler purely because they could have made it into a terminator guitar and didn't.

    That is the greatest description of a Gittler I've ever read. Bravo. :lol:

    Yeah, I got sick of writing “double post” whenever I do it (which, sadly, is often. :lol:) So I figured I’d meme-ify it. It’s the two posts at the embankment of Lisbon. Of course, I didn’t know that when I googled for an image of two posts. But, once I stumbled upon it, it seemed interesting, so I started reading about it, and then wound up on Wikipedia reading about Portugal. Which led me down the rabbit hole that is Wikipedia hyperlinks, and two hours later I found myself well versed in ancient Egyptian dentistry.

    Nope. I’d love to, though!

    So, have you ever done any dentistry? In either Egypt or Portugal?

    Gibson guitar for sale! Half off!

    What those photos show me, is that, at least when this was made, Gibson manufactured "slop" in their neck tenon under the bridge pickups, so that in case either the neck tenon was a little long, or mortise for it under the neck pickup was too short, that the neck would still go all the way in without requiring extra manual labor to sand the neck or chisel out the route. It maks sense from a production efficiency standpoint, but as a side effect it reduces the glue-up surface area, and the end of the neck isn't pressed against the body which one would assume would increase resonance to the body. Hmm...
