    Gibson Custom Category Product Specialist Mat Koehler just posted this on his Instagram. New logo, new placement and new shade of gold for 2019. Cool! :cheers:

    Hmmm... maybe that’s historically accurate (I have no idea if it is), but the silkscreen looks a little high for my liking. Kinda looks out of balance on the headstock.

    Gibson, truly reinventing the historically correct Wheel since 1993. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    I wouldn't be surprised if the pickups are changed for 2019.

    That horizontal script that reads "new logo and placement" really ruins the flow of the headstock for me. Other than that, the "Gibson" looks crooked to me.

    I sure do hope they do away with the fade finishes.

    Not exactly the improvements that I would be hoping for. How about Honduras mahogany..... with Brazilian rosewood. Proper formula Nitro finish. I could make a longer list but those are some big ones.

    They should make it a double cut body for better upper position access...and get rid of the maple cap, too heavy !

    Isn't the Gibson inlay crooked? I'm not a huge fan of the more amber colored inlay, but if that's more historically accurate I'm on board.

    It's just the stupid text on top which is playing with your eyes. There is nothing particularly different, apart the thicker font on the silkscreen and a slightly different alignment. Just more bubbles. :)

    OMG :Ohno:,,,,, I need to go back to the States I BUY 1 ASAP .....

    NOT . Does nothing that players care about . IMO . I don't anyway.
    But for the "collectors" it is a must have , just because it's been changed , and who knows what next year will bring ?

    BTW . the Fiji Hog is about as close as you can get (on a big scale ) these days , as I understand things.
    BRW (last I heard, earlier this year) was available to be had. Either by Shop special runs of doing a M2M order .... Paying for it , seems to be the problem as Gibson feels it's worth a ~ 2K upcharge.
    Bend over, if you want it ,, They will give it to you :doh:

    Nitro is the step which Gibson still wont do . Like Fender does today ... I guess Gibson can't figured it out .. Or doesn't want to ... maybe Offer the option for a real Nitro finish when doing a M2M order ...
    not that it makes a real difference . But it is more vintage accurate and should check over time .
    Some Fenders I've seen, checked while they hung on the all and even at WW , they show pics of New /unsold Fenders that have already checked .
    But Still we are told ,"it can't be done". Right ..... :thumb:

    Well for some strange reason my late 2018 R8 gloss is checking around the toggle switch. So maybe.....
    As far as the Les Paul logo goes didn't they do exactly that in 2015 starting with the True Historics and everybody complained.
