Rumor from a very reliable source. From what I was told, unless someone talks some sense into Henry, supposedly he's discontinuing the Reissue series and not allowing the Custom Shop to build Reissue guitars at this time. Maybe that is one reason for the Edwin situation. I have also noticed that it seems alot of Gibson dealers stock of Reissues is dwindling. Even Wildwood, Gibsons top dealer, has very few in stock these days. We are into March with no 2017's on the market. Like I said, it's just a rumor right now but it is from a reliable source. Weird things going on at Gibson right now.
