    There are at least three threads about it already.

    It's been estimated that for every 50 people who say "I'd rock that!" 1 will actually buy it.

    With just about any other headstock design it would probably be a winner.

    Combining two very iconic looks from different era’s, in this case a neck from the 80’s and a body from the 60’s/70’s, generally looks ridiculous.

    Akin wearing an oversized suit jacket from the 2000’s with the very fitted style of pants that are currently in vogue.

    Their market surveys determined that 25% of their market wants a Ric, 25% wants an 80's inspired pointy bass, and half of them want a P bass. So they combined all of those ideas.

    If carmakers did this, you're get a Porche that is also a garbage truck.

    I see it the other way - with the right body shape, I'd be down with that headstock. The body, not so much.

    That’s essentially what I’m getting at: most people who dig the neck/headstock won’t like the body, and vice versa.

    They’re totally different styles.
