    I also like how the Ibanez guitar in the ad and the Charvel aren't even close to anything they actually made. They didn't even research the competition for the ad.

    The Ibanez is like, a telecaster type thing with a weird double cut with a telecaster bridge and a zebra finish, and the Charvel has filtertrons and a jazzmaster style bridge.

    The funny thing is that Gibson couldn't even pick the right models to feature "rising above the herd"--put a Black Beauty, an Explorer and a Flying V in there, and they might have had a point. You know, the Gibsons that an actual '80s rock guitarist wanted to play.

    Okay, I was an exception--an LPC was my dream guitar when everyone else wanted a Kramer or Charvel.

    Absolutely true. Just before that, Kramer was the one moving big numbers while Gibson and Fender were struggling. I got my first used LPC--a '76 3-pickup natural finish guitar--in 1987 for $300 plus a trade-in of the absolute worst POS Gibson SG ever made (a '72 Deluxe, as I recall). By comparison, I paid $700 for a Kramer Focus 6000 just after that.
