Ok, this cracked me up. I go to Vienna about once a year and this is very true.
Accordions are very popular in Mexican music.........I remember when the Show Bud Pedal Steel was more popular than the Telecaster....I'm not a huge fan of country music but that's where the guitar is a rockin now.
As long as country music is popular the guitar will have a home for a long time.
PFFT....this thread fizzled out
Yeah, only 111 pages
Another news, well not that much new, is that Gibson stopped using Ebony for all Custom Shop, even for "historic" black beauties.
If you want a Custom Black Beauty, through the M2M (since they are not produced anymore), you'll get Richlite.
I've nothing against that mat, that I quite like honestly, but for a Reissue is a weird move...
... I guess this is Henry creating demand for Ebony...and then popping out in a couple of years, charging 2K for an Ebony board, like they did with Braz.
How in their right mind can Gibson run a new batch of Brazilian Board Historics without issuing CITES certs to the buyer? Somebody might give fish & wildlife a call...
Ebony for guitars is available on the market. Taylor sits on it and Henry does not want to buy from him, obviously.
I'm that much happier with my THBB7 now.
Henry's a tool.
I can count at least three Gibson LPCs I would have purchased if it wasn't for the 'counter top' fret boards.
I'll continue to 'just say no' to Richlite with my wallet.
I've no idea. But what I know is that I think all this gimmick is just plain stupid. I was VERY close to order that M2M Custom Reissue '68, but now I'm not sure I'm buying. I've already 2 Black Beauties with Richlite, and one of them is a stellar guitar, but can't see the point to order a M2M '68 if it's basically same thing as my 2017 Custom.
Sometimes looks like they really don't think what the f. they are doing.
shit, a M2M Reissue 68 Custom? With what they'd charge you for it, you're probably right at real deal pricing or very close. I played a real deal early 68 custom and I could have gotten it for about 8k, which is probably close to what they'd charge you for a M2M version with ebony and all the other stuff....
Hmmm no really. Does cost just a bit more than my Custom Black Beauty 2017 LTD.
4.7K $ for a M2M '68 Reissue (with Richlite).
All historic things, like Hide glue (even for the top), long tenon, no tubing, 1 single piece body no weight relief, waffle tuners, ABR1 + alu TP etc etc etc. It's a full spec 68' Reissue, just with Richlite instead Ebony.
There's a new leftover '15 here:
I think you could find many others like this. Why go M2M w/Richlite when there are still new TH '68s available?
I know those guys (it's 2 years I'm searching for a good '68 R), and they have just 1 available...which has a terrible looking ebony board.
Is there an emoji that vomits? I need one.
this might be the reason for being 'left over'
Probably why it'still there.
All tho I'd wager that it'd darken nicely with play and maybe an oiling. It looks really dry in that pic.
