I know it's a nice guitar, but looking at that photo, it really just looks like they made a PRS/Gibson single-cut mash-up that's just lukewarm compared to it's inspiration.
Yeah I was gonna say, bass side looks like a standard LP copy and the treble side looks like a PRS single cut without the carve on the lower horn.

I'm sure they know their market more than I do, but I'm not sure anybody was asking for this. Maybe trying to pickup the slack from the Anderson single that got nixed?

Is that the Bulldog? If so, it's definitely closer to what I was expecting from this than what we got

That cutaway looks terrible.

Yeah, which is a shame because it was one of the better looking and more distinct LP style single cuts out there. Classy.
Which is why Gibson decided to threaten.

At least they got the control layout right (I massively prefer the PRS singlecut style like this over the traditional Gibson).
I think the Gibson layout is far more usable. The angle of the controls means you can easily reach both volume knobs, and the less frequently used tone knobs are out of the way. I feel like PRS messed with the layout to try to avoid a lawsuit, and not because it makes more sense.
