    Doesn't Henry realize we don't want 95 different versions of Les Pauls? Seriously !!!

    IMG_1071.jpg The one thing that I don't think Gibson has ever done, the one thing that every Les Paul player has been longing for in their heart. A "monkey grip" handle!!

    He is talking about the modern double cutaway. I'd bet the 2018 line won't be a drastic overhaul.

    -carved top sg's
    -so, not much really

    My inside source tells me that every 2018 Gibson will come with a 100 dollar Taco Bell gift card.

    Not only that, but every Custom Shop LP Guitar will come with a "Bell" medallion switch plate cover to commemorate the unholy alliance.

    Maybe i said too much................

    Funny
    Exactly what I wanted
    So I built my first guitar
    Bone nut
    Easy access strat look
    Gibson bottom carved top
    Cocobolo fretboard
    Abalone inlays
    Monty pickups
    Messed up the stoptail but hey, it's my first build
    Even got the exact color I wanted since I did it myself
    Sounds almost exactly like my 5k re issue
    And long tenon 5 piece neck

    That's pretty cool! Great first build!

    Yeah I see the chibson spacing on the bridge/stop bar. That can be fixed. Your next build you'll be way better. Go for a straight string pull through the nut as well.

    After the success of the Blueberry & Bourbon Standards, I wonder if Gibson will keep those colors as part of the '18 range?
