14s had the hyde glue tops...
Yeah, this is all absurd. I own one of these 2017 Custom Shop LP Standards (58) with the True Historic plastics, hide glued top and fretboard, etc. It's friggin' stamped R8 in the control cavity. It has a 2017 serial number (and it's a fairly low number), but I suppose it's possible it was built in 2017. I was in The Music Zoo a few weeks ago and got to play a mess load of Historic Reissues from various years, including 2017's. As far as build quality, tone, playability and finish, the 2017's are just as much Historic Reissues as previous years, if not more. I don't really care what they're called - these are the things that matters most to me
I don't know nuttin' about nuttin', but I do know my 2017 Custom Shop Standard came with a document inside the case signifying it is a "Gibson Historic"
This is awesome!
Just the mention of TH parts and hide glue, and this thread came to life
It may not reach 90 pages, but what the hell
No... they did not. Only horsie glue on the board and neck pocket.
Poppycock. That is absurd semantics.
Gibson may have killed the "Historic Reissue" nomenclature... but these guitars carry the same specs, build, and in some cases are improved... as such the addition of the horse hide glue top previously only found on True Historics... which are also dead. It's the name game! Ludicrous.
I agree. Facts are facts. Marketing is marketing. Absurdity for the sake absurdity. The specs of the guitars speak for themselves.
I concur ... and they sound killer regardless what some may wish to classify them as.
And they don't look half bad either
And this is the simplest, best explanation I've heard yet and corroborated with the person I spoke with at The Music Zoo:
The truth is what it is, the only absurd semantics is how you fight for them to be recognized as historics (personally i could not care less), and the belief that what you have ( if you even have one) will be the most sought after post Gembar & Wilson guitars ever made. That's funny.
I do have several... and what you fail to realize is written on the "Model:_____" of the factory warranty/checklist booklet that comes with the guitar from the factory... it says verbatim: "Model: LPR9 HR" ... wanna guess what the HR means?
Ummm... lets think... LPR9... followed by the letters H & R... Hmmmm....
You're are talking about things with 3rd hand knowledge. Unlike myself... and others in this very thread.
not quite there yet... but getting closer.
And you still care Why? (Oh, but its not on the COA?) the check list Hmmmmmm
