    Man, that thicker ink alone is worth at least 1k$. $5k if it comes with a COA certifying Murphy applied it.

    So much for nitpicking where the Mahogany is grown. Check out the incredible tone of this axe made of pencils. I’m not joking, this thing is amazing.

    Generally I think for some reason bursts have tended to fade a little more at the butt end, but these recent fade bursts look unnatural and just ridiculous. As if they're trying to save on paint. I've been looking hard for a 2018 that I really like and have passed on many otherwise great ones for this very reason.

    That really does sound great. I wonder what pickups and amp he's using.

    Hi friends — saw this thread blowing up and thought I’d chime in. That post was only a sneak peek — as in, just one small hint of what’s to come. Wait til NAMM week — you’re gonna like what you see. There will be a sunburst for everyone and there are many more tweaks including all new vintage-spec electronics...consider that sneak peek part two! :)

    I'm glad to hear this. On another forum they were talking about Gibson's new website where nary a Historic is to be spotted amongst the tall grass and trees. Guess they're off in the wings, waiting to fly in at the right moment (I know, horrible metaphor).

    So you joined two days ago and have made one post...just to provide this "Inside information" :squint:
    Sounds like same old Henry BS to me. :sadwave:

    Vintage spec electronics? Want to elaborate? :hmm:

    They will fill your Historic cavity with original 1959 dust.

    Electronics? Does this mean they dug up some old magnets from 60 years ago and are putting together PAFs? Please don't hurt me :rofl::run:

    CTS or Centralab type original taper pots?

    Can’t think of what else it could be

    Caps are done (we’ll never get PIO)
    Pups are probably done with the Custombuckers

    Gibsons' site has dropped all the previous years models. I'm hopeful they'll bring that info back as it was a great reference for specs.

    Currently the site is about f'n useless. The only models listed are '19s and Historics are completely absent.

    :wtf:

    I inspected the source tree, and the site to me looks closed, at least its main structure.

    To me looks that the Custom Shop section is now showing only regular production models (the black custom family of guitars). Everything else, assumption/speculation, could be just worked outside the official website (through dealers and M2M).

    And yes, legacy products are GONE.

    Ok, welcome to Mat! :wave: An intro would have been nice tho.....else you get assumed to be a troll. :shock: ..but my opinion on the info hasn't changed, without some kind of details, the electronic changes are nebulous. ... and "sunburst for everyone"?...... :applause: Curiosity is killing me now! :dunno:

    Based on that goldtop I just saw, you better sneak up real quiet like or you will scare everyone away.

    9k for snatch, that's a lot of scratch for snatch

    well i hope this is not what we should expect the "new" Custom Shop to deliver at NAMM

    Aged 1956 GT Historic.

    especially if it supposed to look like this
