    What, no basses?
    Personally, I think they're losing their minds over there, especially since they're also coming out with a Peaky Blinders and Handmaid's Tale series by mid summer.

    Hey, maybe Gibson follow with a House Greyjoy Iron Islands Thunderbird.

    Seriously, they don't look bad, they just scream "Look at me!"

    I'm not a fan of the show (nor of guitars with more 4 fat strings), but I'd change the PGs on those 2 on the right and rock the S out of em :bassist: edit: Look at me!

    I think the one on the left would make a nice Jaguar bass.
    Not for me, but surely for someone.

    My benchmark for guitar-maker marketing insanity/bad taste is, and probably always will be, the Gibson "Zoot Suit" SG. Perfect instrument to play at an Italian funeral: pure spumoni.

    I'd like to know who came up with the name Zoot Suit.
    Sure, I realize zoot suits were often brightly colored, but I just did a quick Yahoo search and can't find a pic of one quite like your SG.
    I think Spumoni is definitely a better name.

    I guess I should check the miscellaneous board every month or two!
    I imagine this thread will get moved soon.

    Sounds like you missed the poll conducted at the end of 2018.

    I’d say they scream “I’m a dork!!” A bit louder.

    The real problem is changing wardrobes for whoever but these things.

    Besides, basses would get lame cast off characters anyway, compared to guitar. Like a Tarley jazz bass or the classic Ser Loras P.

    I really hate the way people have become so faddy and addicted to entertainment based clutter. I'm a fan of the show, but seriously, in a few years, when all the buzz is gone, these will just be "what were they thinking" guitars and either be worthless, or possibly valuable collector's items if they don't move a lot of them.

    That said, I really do like the look of the Targaryan model. I don't usually go in for fancy looking instruments, but if they made one of those in a 5 string P, my gas would resurface.....

    after watching the video, i do like the detail and creativity they put into these designs. there's a lot of thought there, not just forcing a popular show onto an instrument.
