What bothered me was the fact that Gibson can't help but nstead of also making a nice mandolin version, they hurl out the butt-ugly EMS-1235 - you know, the two headed freaks of the family: the aforementioned EMS, the well known and well despised by me "Stairway To Hotel California" EDS-1275, and the bassy one, once worn by Elvis himself, the EBS-1250 (along with the rare EBSF-1250 - better since I like EB-0Fs a lot. Still...they're ugly! (Actually the EDS-1235T, the Tenor/Mandolin doubleneck is kinda cool.) My rationale is as follows: SGs mean to me slick, smooth, fast, light, mean, tough, now-you-see-me-now-you-don't guitars with Ted McCarty obviously thinking of this deadly sexy woman, a femme fatale when he designed it.

NO. It's a '65. Blah blah, woof woof. No. No can do.
