    I'm not sold on the looks but don't dislike it either. I would have to play it to make up my mind.

    I like the looks too. If I was in the market for a Gibson I'd consider one.
  7. I found one for $1000 it was ok, sounded good by itself, I don't know if I'd spend that kind of money on it though

    I'd like to see it in a dark(ish) blue with a white pickguard. Then I'll pronounce judgment. ;)

    Not for me. It looks like a kid copied another kid's test answer, but got it wrong anyway.

    I can only speak to my Explorer's quality(2012 Silverburst), but I love it. Great sounding, playing and looking axe.
  12. Whaaaa?

    Yep. And Chevy should've stuck with only the Chevette, Vega, and Biscayne.

    Variety is the spice of life, my friend.:p

    Are these USA made? I assume not considering the price. But if they are...not bad at all. I find that big huge 'BABICZ' logo on the bridge very strange on a Gibson.
  14. All Gibson Basses are made in either Nashville or (now) Memphis Tennessee. It is ironic that people on here complain about Gibson being so high priced This isn't even their least expensive model.
