    Am I the only one who doesn't really get the looks of the 20th Silo?

    I might be standing very alone here... but I think the 20th Silo does not look very good...

    Of course it's a great player but it reminds me of a low cost Schechter appearance wise.

    Well, I guess it al depends on personal taste really... I think it looks great, it looks quite different from the original Silhouette. I think it looks really classy, and the colour choice couldn't have been better...

    It's OK if you don't really like the looks, as long as you know that it sounds great!!

    Interesting Philosphy.

    I don't like the appearance of the 20th either. But that doesn't matter, plenty of people do, and that's really all that counts. If BP made only one guitar, there would be problems, but with all the varieties of shapes, colours and configurations available to us Canuckleheads and Knuckleheads, no one (not even BP) can expect EVERYBODY to love them all. Choice is a wonderful thing, and people shouldn't expect everyone else to agree with their choice...at least not all the time...

    I'm not really crazy about it's looks either, but man that thing plays and sounds great! I remember the first time that I've seen the Petrucci guitars. Being born and raised on Strats I thought the JPs were hideous. Then after picking one up and playing it, it all made sense. Now they're the most beautiful guitars on the planet.

    Horses for courses isn't it?

    I don't like the looks of some taylors, but I wouldn't go onto their forum and start a thread about it....

    Like Rob said, there are plenty of other great EBMM's to look at, see what takes your fancy. All of them play and soud great.

    Yeah--I noticed mine emits a slightly cheesy odor at times---especially when doing Manilow covers.
