    Again, agree to disagree. Many of the gigging musicians I know can afford these L.P.’s or whatever they want. Many are your age. Gibson’s misfortunes are due to some bad business decisions, guitars notwithstanding.

    I buy nice L.P.’s and gig the shit out of them. Time will tell, but I think there is still plenty of market out there. In the mean time......

    They are a pretty embarrassing company to watch. Doesn't mean I don't like them. But embarrassing none the less.

    Seems like everything is back to normal with 59 reissue historics etc no more calling it a standard

    I noticed Greg Koch in a video mocking the whole "its a standard not an R9" thing so I guess every single person apart from mfolet mocking them had an impact

    Ah good.

    They really need work on marketing constancy btw, because this is sooo confusing. :)

    Not related but I do know him personally.

    I worked with him before he bought Gibson.

    I did get to sit and chat with him three years ago.

    He bought his first Gibson at the House of Guitars just as I did and back in those days it was all we talked about on breaks.

    He does have a passion for guitars.

    This is EXACTLY my same thought when I've seen this guitar. An Historic with that finish, I don't know, that is so confusing to me. Where are in a point now where those terms make no sense at all, because they've been used in many different ways. I mean, to my eyes the Custom Shop Standards they were doing in 2017 they were all looking like historics. Now this guitar, it's called historic again, but it's looking like a modern standard. :)

    To someone who didn't know better it looks like the 2018 Historic Fade is just a 2018 USA Standard hp with a p@KER chip, pickup rings and a pickguard for $3000 up charge.:D............But of course WE know better.
