The unique thing about the electronics was that it offered a lot of very non-Gibson-y sounds. You could get a decent Telecaster twang out of it and a snappy Strat tone, but because of the feel of the neck and the density of the woods used (maple, maple, and more maple), it felt kind of compressed. One of the settings was a sound that would be fantastic for funk. As a matter of fact, I think the Brothers Johnson endorsed them or had one on an album cover at the time. Just strum some sixteenth notes on a thirteenth chord and you were in funk heaven.
The model shown here has darkened with age and has a pleasing patina to the finish. The exemplar shown here comes with a non-original hardshell case, currently on auction for just over $1900. Compared to what a Les Paul from this era could cost you, it's a steal. You get some interesting tone options and a distinctive-feeling guitar for a reasonable price for a vintage instrument.
