So with the new 2020 line up, all which I think look great and is the right move for Gibson. (Also the one's I have played so far have all been really good), I was wondering what will be the replacement for the Tribute + series which seemed to be pretty much top of the line up. Given that those...
Not posted on here for a while. I've been looking at PRS guitars for a while. The Customs 22 and 24's are hard to find where I live. Local store had a list of guitars in stock at the factory. They had one Custom 22 in Purple Mist with Ebony fingerboard. The wait time for a Custom 22 is 12...
Looks like there is a new Slash Sig model Firebird on they way. It the quality is as good as the Bonamassa it should be really nice. Only a quick glimpse here on this video. Looks like bound neck. Maybe SD pickups like the Gibson version had?
Hopefully some better info to come soon...
Gibson have updated their site for the 2018's....
I had not noticed prior (assuming their stated spec is correct) that the 2018 Tribute in non-weight relieved, where are the 2017 version has 9 hole relief.
Picked it up Monday. I did post it in thread about the JB, but figured I better make it official.....
Well it arrived! Finally! Been what 6 months (ish). The Gold has been in Canada for a while but it's took this long for the sunburst to get here.
It was worth the wait! it is a 2017 model...
Although we don't seem to have too much of a price hike (not like the 2015 shock) the lower end pricing does not seem to make much sense:
LP Faded T - $799
Tribute T - $899
Custom Studio/S - $799??
The Studio S has less wood on the headstock, two less controls, cheaper electronics, different...
Picked this up used. Mint condition. Needs a polish and oil to the fretboard which I shall do this week.
Not sure of the colour name exactly, very nice looking though. Taken a pic with and without pickguard.
Came with SD 59 & JB fitted and original pickups included in a Gator case.
I had a 2004 Joe Perry Boneyard which I sold for reasons I cannot remember. Ever since I did it was one of those "why did I sell that.." Anyway I've looked around every so often in local classified ads but they never seem to come up for sale. Until two weeks ago, the same guitar was posted. The...
What happened to the HP 2016 range of Gibson electrics? Anyone else notice that they have gone from Gibson's website?
I never saw one in a store. My local store wouldn't stock, special order only after the 2015 issues.
Is this the end of GForce?
NOS. Wanted a firebird for a long time. Was thinking about the 2016 but not keen it only comes with a soft case. They have also moved the output socket back onto the front on the 2016's, I prefer it on the side. The wider neck does not bother me at all. Sounds killer.
Just glancing through Sweetwater's site and came across these. Listed as a new item. Plain top, non-weight relieved, $300 less that the regular 2016 Trad 'T'.
Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plaintop, Non-Weight Relieved - Light Burst | Sweetwater.com
They made these a few years back. I quite like the finish.
Nice to see Gibson adding some decent priced alternatives. The SG Naked is not bad looking either. 24 frets on that also like the SGJ had.

So I bought a used Traditional a few months back from my local store in excellent condition, other than when they initial got it in the headstock had snapped clean off. The repair was carried out by Gibson and they re-finished the back of the neck. I posted a NGD at the time. The first owner...
