So...a plainer top and $2000 more than a 2014? Good idea, Gibson.

Wow! Looks so much "truer"! For 8k or whatever it is, I'll pass. Let the feeding frenzy begin for the Gibson fanboys!

re: New 58 True Historic teaser from Gibson Custom Shop

Do you guys think that Gibson will only offer a Cherry Sunburst finish?

Sprayed with aniline dye, to be faded by the customer/time?

That would be most true.

Nope, that would be too "true" they need another carrot to dangle for next year to justify another price hike! What a joke! I'll never buy a new Gibson. Greedy bastards.

Big gap between the neck pup and the fretboard. That's always annoyed me. Plastics look the same to me.

I thought I read on here the R8's would be morphed into the R9 line, all with killer tops, all the same price just differences in neck size? This photo contradicts that notion and also does nothing for me.

I'm checking my pockets for a rat's a$$, but I just can't seem to find one to give.

Honestly, I like the plain top on that. Pretty guitar, but it's tainted by the money-grab.

If you check the originals in BOTB and elsewhere, you'll see that's historically correct.

...but not worth a $2000+ increase IMO.

But that guitar is really pretty.

re: New 58 True Historic teaser from Gibson Custom Shop

The color and carve look nice. It's not going to be a big change and most will not feel the price increase is worth it. The tops also will be more accurate to the Originals. Doubt we see any monster tops or even tops as good as 2013 and 2014. The R8's will probably be mostly plain tops and the R9's will be figured to lightly figured. Just my guess.

If that R8 was at 2013-2014 prices I would buy it. It really is a great looking guitar but not at 2015 prices though.

The knobs do look better. I'll keep my Retrospec and Montreux, though.

I'm ok with this. I think, for the most part, I like light figuring on my tops. My R8 has a very subtle flame to it that I think is perfect. That said, there's no way the price increase is justified for these. The only way I'd pay that price is if they added GForce and made the fretboard wider . . oh, and a hologram. I want a hologram.

Yeah, the tip and other plastics look great. I still would rather have an older Reissue, pick the exact aftermarket stuff that I want, and still get away a lot cheaper.
