He's probably talking about my avatar. It really doesn't help that my 658 is the dark blue one, so the resemblance to Gonzo is even more striking. That and the fact that when someone asked what kind of creature Gonzo was, he was always referred to as being a "Whatever"
But I think the difference in the way the two look (stock vs raised fender) is that the beak goes more or less straight out where the raised fender has that "hooked" look to it because it's curved not straight. I would guess that it's a matter of taste as to which one looks better.
