    I read that page earlier today and had a good chuckle...seriously, it really feels like marketing done by a Gibson ghost writer. They have made some cool changes, not disagreeing, but talk about trying to make owners of previous years feel ****ty. Don't get me started, I just don't think the changes they made=the new price.

    One thing I found interesting is the TH has a super dark back in this write up, I don't remember seeing many real bursts look like that

    So they're comparing a 10th anniversary Chambered Reissue to a True Historic?

    Methinks that's an apples to oranges comparison...

    It says that the recessed pickguard screws are historically accurate...i thought that was a 2015 TH manufacturing mistake? :hmm:

    Actually, this comparo doesn't make me feel s@itty at all about my 2013. Makes me feel smart, and fortunate, to have gotten a really nice guitar before this ridiculousness set in. Sure, some of the changes are nice but this just highlights that this kind of price increase over these kind of details is, IMO, absurd.

    This comparo comes off as a losing argument to me. A $500 price increase? Sure. Thousands? I guess I am not the target market ... :)

    At least in these pics, the pickup covers look awfully similar.

    also FWIW, I think the back badge completely sucks. I hate that radiused bronze box that they encompass the Gibson logo in. :thumb:

    Forgotten detail in their little compare and contrast exercise.....the goddamn price increase of $3000???

    Shove your hand rubbed finish, rounded edges and newfangled toggle plate up your ass

    ...and how about what's EXACTLY THE SAME ZOO??? The husk has the same wood selection, the hardware the steel screws the mostly crap pots, the fake bees, the same wrong logo shall I continue?
