Aging celebrity [adjacent] who plays derivative music launches line of derivative guitars for those advanced enough in age to know who he is.
Honestly though, he's always seemed like an alright guy in interviews and stuff.
That was pretty corny. Nothing that really stands out here about the guitar.
PRS meets the boneyard.... Promo suck big time though. I lauch my brand but don't know the specs.....
I remember reading years ago about Frank really being into guitars and one of the LA vintage places being kinda his hangout.
Dang, nobody got the reference.
lol I came in here to make the Frank Stallone joke and that was actually the intended punchline. Surprised me almost as much as the tickle-me-Frank Stallone line.
Jeez I felt like I was watching a Tim and Eric sketch.
So they just asked the PRS SE factory to make guitars that look like PRSs?
Of aaaall the pickups they could have tried...what a coincidence that the perfect ones were the in-house factory pickups. That's like finding your soul mate in high school, or at work.
My biggest takeaway in all this is...huh, Frank Stallone was nominated for a Grammy?
You don't know this classic?
“That string alignment is right on the money.” What was the last guitar this guy played? A Roter? That’s like the most basic element of a guitar.
“We are selling these via the internet.” Wow, the internet? I think I’ve heard of that! Clearly speaking to boomers.
“We want to do what Amazon has done, and sell them directly to you.” Apparently not aware that everyone sells guitars on line. Even...Amazon.
He’s persistent in adding the .com to the business name. Like it’s 1998 and we don’t know how to look for Frank Stallone Guitars online.
edit: I take that back. Google has the site on page 2. Probably because its news today, though, and the videos and press release are popping up everywhere
edit 2: it does look like a decent guitar. But I’m not sure who would want this over a normal SE. And the whole Band Together concept sounds exactly like what we always criticize luthiers for doing after they fail to deliver and go under. I get that people don’t want to take investor money, but the dude could just get a bank loan. Sounds like he doesn’t want any skin in the game if it goes belly up.
too lazy to look for it, but that really specific price tag he mentions at the star "people dont have 4350$".... or 4000-3500$"(donno how to interpret it)... I wonder if thats the price for a Gibson, or a PRS
dont need to, his target market only know 2 maybe 3 things about guitars.... 1-Gibson, 2-Fender, 3-PRS .... that target market dont know, dont care about the specific specs we over analyse in here
That video actually kinda blew me away.
Mainly the fact that someone out there is wearing a Papa fucking Roach shirt in 2019.
Oh my god. I dunno what is worse: the promo vid or their site design. They seem to stuck in early internet era.
EDIT: what is even more cringe-worthy? A VIP option: a guitar and the dinner with Frank himself. OMG
https://frankstalloneguitars.com - You've been warned ;-)
The site design seems relatively modern like any other site. Just using some pretty low quality assets and questionable fonts.
I don’t even know who Frank Stallone is
