If you want a nanner Gibson, go for the U-2. One of the best superstrats ever built.http://kramerforumz.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=622
Got you, but I need maple fingerboard. When I make mistakes, I like to look at the bright side of 'em (and my life) and thus maple. Rosewood, on the other hand, looks like poo. OK, U2 had ebony board so it was not that bad. I know it is all about the playability but...It doesn't matter how you play the game or if you win or lose... it's how you look:)
Frankly speaking, I would like to get Explorer with a Floyd and maple board (maybe even white phenolic board - think Brendon Small Snow Falcon) or Baretta with maple board. Epiphone did the Negative series some time ago... Kramer produces (? never seen them ?) Voyagers, but these have beak headstock (hate them) instead of bananas/hockey sticks...
Rafikiknowtheway claimed the Indonesian 84's are good, maybe he can elaborate on that? Anyone else?
