    That is a great looking guitar. Sadly for me, I can’t get past those large headstocks.

    Funny thing about the large headstocks is that I never noticed it as much on my black penguin but on the white one it's very much there, the black one seems a lot more subtle, I guess they do say black is slimming.

    Me too!

    As for the headstocks I really don’t like the skinny ones but the big ones are cool as heck!

    That green is awesome and I always dig the big headstock as long as it has a sparkle vertical logo.

    I agree. Personal opinion, the wing headstock is a hard no.

    For me it's the sparkles that ruin it. I like the vertical logo. The wings and the size are kind of turn offs. But the sparkle makes it look like a shovel full of unicorn puke... but that's just me. :D

    I managed to grab the last one this morning before they sold out.
    Got tagged in the Thunder Road Post last night on instagram and managed to sell my Les Paul r8 in quick time to make it happen.

    Only 12 made for their 10th Anniversary.

    I've been dreaming about a CS surf green penguin which is really out of my price range so had to have one of these!

    I wish I could have gotten one of these in the UK, it’s the perfect penguin for me

    I'm also in the UK. Once customs comes into it it (should) work out about the same as the white VS Penguin UK price. Maybe even cheaper with a bit of luck.
    Tracking says it should be here next week :D
