    Looks like we now know what Gibson has in store for us in 2019

    Gibson 2019 lineup leaked · Source: Gibson

    Gibson has somehow managed to leak its own 2019 line-up – on its own website. The details for most of next year’s models have all been listed over the weekend, and there are some pleasant surprises amongst the plethora of models.

    Gibson 2019 leaked
    The pictures of the Gibson USA 2019 lineup have appeared all over the company’s own website, the only thing missing is the price. Either that or they all cost exactly USD $5429 each! We reckon the prices are all just placeholders until official release details are uploaded to the page.

    What I can tell you is that it would seem Henry and his team have actually listened to customers and given us a far more traditional, streamlined set of models for this coming year, which is great as that is what the majority of Gibson fans are looking for. If you do want something crazy and ‘out there’ use the Gibson Custom Shop!

    Gibson 2019 models leaked online including Flying V, Explorer and Les Pauls

    2019 Lineup
    The Les Paul is again available in “all” versions, so we can expect the following: Studio Tribute, Tribute, Studio, Classic, Standard, Traditional and High Performance. A Les Paul Junior Tribute DC will also be in Worn Cherry next year with a Maple neck, a P90 on the bridge, lonely volume and tone controls and a gig bag which would be seriously overpriced at $5249, so we will have to wait and see what it actually costs.

    We can also see plenty of nice looking 2019 SG models including Standard Tribute, Standard, Standard 61 and High Performance. Then we have Flying V and Explorer models, which are always a welcome addition in my book, as they are such cool, yet perfectly vintage styled instruments and it looks like we will get some korina models in amongst them as well. Again we are getting the Firebird models in “normal” and a tribute, both look pretty decent to me and I can see them being popular.

    Memphis 2019
    Not sure exactly how this series will come about, as we were under the impression that the plant at Memphis had been sold, yet there will be new models in 2019. Well then just not produced in the eponymous Memphis factory anymore I suppose?

    We are waiting for an ‘official’ confirmation to confirm this. However, we have been informed unofficially that they are leasing the factory for the time being and then moving premises eventually.

    All the semi ES-335 models come in the following variants: P-90, Dot, Figured; But also ES-325, ES-275 Thinline and ES-355 are there. Jazz and blues guitarists should be looking forward to a thin guitar with a great look, especially on the 275 Thinline.

    I’m just happy that this once great American guitar builder is still going and that they appear to have seen sense and made what the fans actually want, good job Gibson!

    More Information
    (Links ^^ don't work any longer...)

    Note: This post has been changed to reflect the fact that we are currently unsure if Gibson’s Memphis factory has, in fact, been sold. Previously, we stated that the factory had been sold.

    Some changes to the SG Standard are that they put the batwing back on it, it has a rounded neck profile now and the neck is maple instead of mahogany.

    It also comes with a soft case instead of the standard hard case.

    That's if the links are correct.

    Interesting that the the Jr DC looks like the entire electronics assembly may be on the pick guard. That should save cost and keep the price down.

    I don't care what anyone says, Gibson under HJ made great guitars and still does.

    B-2s look like they have potential, that DC Junior though? Seriously ugly.

    Who knows WHAT will actually be offered? I don't place any credo on any of this.... decisions are rarely made by this time of the year. And with "new" management coming on board, who knows for sure what will make it to the plate?

    The prices have to be sample numbers to make sure all of the areas of the beta pages are working. That's my guess, anyway.

    I wouldn't put too much stock on any of the info just yet, but we'll see
