    Whether a bottom line guitar has a wrap bridge that is adjustable or not has nothing to do with sex. The LP Jr and MM were not designed for women. I don't think Leslie West is a woman either.
    I forgot the smiley to indicate that I was joking; here it is: That said, the wraparound bridge as used by Gibson does represent a compromise as far as intonation goes. A lot of great music has been written on imperfectly intonated guitars (heck, the entire instrument is arguably imperfectly intonated!); is just struck me as curious that the two models that Gibson have marketed specifically towards women both had them.

      I played a blue Goddess years ago. It screamed, great player and a very cool finish.

        I love the way they look, and I like thin body guitars and i like Gibsons, so it seems like a natural fit for me. The name doesn't draw me in or push me away. But they must be a but rare, which is ok because I do not need another guitar.

          I really like the thinner LPs. I liked the Firebrands, and the Smart Woods, too.

            A Firebrand was my first higher-end guitar. It sounded good, but the frets on mine were really low and wide, and I could never get used to the feel of it.

              I have a thin Les Paul that's comfortable and sounds great and a great player. It's called an SG.

              I did find the DS-1 in the garbage.
              I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

                Yeah, but the balance isn't right for me, and the neck pickup is sort of in the 'wrong' place.

                  You are preaching to the choir - an SG was my main guitar for years! I think the did a Godess series of SGs too, and I wouldn't mind one of those either.

                      Ah ha, but a good strap wonít allow it to dive, and the right sounding pickup in the neck can help get around the position of it. But yeah, I get it just canít work for some. Everything is a trade off.
