I've come to realize that the lion's share of my Gibsons are post-Norlin, pre-raid. The exception was the Firebrand (that bad memory in Gibson history).

But other than that, late 90s through the Aughts.

I don't know why but everything from the fit and finish to the tone and quality just speaks to me.

What era is home for your babies?
Classic? Norlin? The alleged Good Wood Era?

Both of mine are 2017. Bought them in 2020 and 2021. It was based purely on specs; they also made the specs I like from 1990-2005 but it was harder to find an instrument in good condition from that era.

My first Gibson was a Faded SG from 2002, my next Gibson was a 2012 LP Trad, both bought brand new. Last year I picked up a 2007 R9 and shortly after a used 2019 LP Jr. So almost 2 decades worth of Gibson for me. Can't believe my old SG is about to turn 20 in less than a year.

Mine are 1958 - 2014 they’re all great. Good & bad guitars out there from every era. Including Norlin.

How do you like your Norlin?
It's great! It's a '74-75 Custom that I converted into a Rhoads clone. Just did some setup work on it last week and adjusted the action again, and its a monster to play!
