Looks like a Gibson branded Epiphone, not a Gibson.

I'd consider it if they had a version for lefties.

Flip it and string it reverse, would look like a lefty standard Firebird. Might need lower profile knobs I guess. Gee it looks cheap though.

I play right handed, that was the point.

The knobs don't actually get in the way there, I have a Firebird.

Poplar body..... It's a cool idea but calling it even an Epiphone is insulting. Gibson are supposed to be mahogany in my opinion.

I like poplar as a tonewood. I don't really care about that. Gibson has made nice guitars out of mahogany, limba(korina), chambered bodies with solid maple caps, maple plywood...

But in all seriousness, that upper bout is way too much of an under achiever and didn't take his vitamins as a youth. Even if the upper bout was non-reverse Firebirdy in shape it seems like it would have balanced out better than the final product.

Unless of course one is a lefty (a la the righty version), though by that time we've bigger issues to address...
