    Which Gibson Features or Designs You Wish Were Different?

    I'll probably get killed for this, but I wish they offered more models with Richlite fretboards. I have a Les Paul with a Richlite board and absolutely love it. All the benefits of ebony without any of the downsides.

    Gibson SG P-90 Special

    It's really hard to tell. It does looks like it could have some gold in it, but I can't tell if it's a base coat or maybe gold flake mixed into the burgundy? Either way it looks fantastic, I'm really glad I went for this over the pelham blue.

    Gibson SG P-90 Special

    Here's a couple quick shots that I got this morning. My only real gripe is an aesthetic one, and that's that with how great the sparkling burgundy looks it's a shame they went with the silk screened gold Gibson logo. Pearl would have really made the whole package pop.

    Gibson SG P-90 Special

    I will say that after having it in hand for a few days I think it's still a great deal at $1250. I'm super impressed with this guitar. Hopefully the sun comes out so I can get some pics today.

    Gibson SG P-90 Special

    According to Gibson the "old" version of these also have cryogenically treated frets. Might be a selling point for some.

    Gibson SG P-90 Special

    I got mine last night. It's a 2019 model but from before the ownership change, with the old format serial number and PCB board wiring. FYI, American Musical Supply is blowing these out for almost $500 less than the Original Collection version, so it's worth it even if you replace all the...

    Gibson SG P-90 Special

    So is the only difference between the two versions the hand wired electronics in the newer ones? I ordered one of the "Limited Edition" versions from AMS that's being delivered today.

    Hard to Get a New Standard '60s Unburst With a Nice Top

    Just as an FYI, Zzounds and American Musical Supply are pulling from the same stock so if one site has a specific guitar you like the other does as well.

    New Epi Headstocks...... opinions

    Add me to the list of people that liked the new headstocks better in photos than in person, although it's still better than the old clipped version. I will say that for whatever reason I think the new headstock looks much better on the models where it's bound, for whatever reason.

    NGD: PRS Pauls Guitar SE

    The neck on these feels pretty close to it's core counterpart. A little more 50's Les Paul than the normal Wide/Fat. I have one in Aqua and love it.

    NGD: 2020 Epi Les Paul Custom

    The fret ends aren't sharp at all. They're actually very well dressed.

    NGD: 2020 Epi Les Paul Custom

    As Cardinalcomb said, they're very similar to Gibson Burstbuckers to my ears. I like them quite a bit.
