Re: Sam Ash Gibson USA BLOWOUT.

Got a Gold top Trad. I love it so much, I can't remember how long I've had it, it feels like I've always had it!
My playing has improved so much!

If you find one, buy it!

I just checked and didn't see any customs for 1899 or standards for $1999. Did see the traditional pluses for $1599 though.

I believe these are in-store prices. I'm wondering about what customs these are as well though.

Re: Sam Ash Gibson USA BLOWOUT.

I woulda loved to had a Midtown custom semi hollow body. I didn't even know they existed until a few days ago. Unfortunately my wallet is to thin right now and they are a limited run. Damn!

Yea rub it in ! If I had the spare change I'd have one on the way. But, I drug home a Twin Reverb amp a few weeks ago so the toy budget is drained. On the good side I don't ever have to worry about having a crappy amp again

Nice score on a great guitar.
That would have tempted me in to making a purchase I really don't need at the moment

I bought my Trad Pro Goldtop in May 2011 for $1599 + tax and that was a great deal, the fact that it was the best Les Paul I had ever played made it worth it.

I still have it right next to my Recently acquired R7, I just love Goldtops!

Enjoy your new guitar, what a score!

Re: Sam Ash Gibson USA BLOWOUT.

From the looks of this particular "blow out," Sam Ash could do a little better on the prices if it's really a clearance/clear out. So far, I'm not impressed with the prices to buy anything.

This should let you know how big of a markup these stores put on Gibson products. And they still made a profit off you at $1,399.00 for your gold top.

However, enjoy it. I'm happy for you

Re: Sam Ash Gibson USA BLOWOUT.

I picked up a Limited Run LP Deluxe Goldtop in early Jan of this year when they were blowing out the 2012's for only $1329. AMS even split the payments into three parts for me. It was a impulse buy at the time but I sure am glad I pulled the trigger, within two weeks of my purchase the GT Deluxes were out of stock everywhere. It's turned into my number one guitar in a big way. The Goldtop just moves me when I see it everytime and the blonde wood back and neck are just the best looking combo I've seen. Love it.

It's my understanding that these prices were to clear stock before the 2013 redesigns hit. These were bulk buys from Gibson not left over stock according to Sweetwater at the time (the one I bought had a date of 8/2012). IIRC all the ones I saw for sale last fall all ended up with a spec change for 2013 or were discontinued. Picked up a killer Traditional form Sweetwater at that time.

Re: Sam Ash Gibson USA BLOWOUT.

Makes No Sense to buy Most 2013 Gibsons now(Unless you see something you have too have}
By Dec there should be other blowouts because they will want too clear the way for the 2014s.
I am waiting and so are many others for the year end deals.(not too many months to go babyyyy}.............JT
