I was reading some encouraging news on the Gibson site regarding the new 2013 Traditional. It was encouraging because I never understood or grasped their desire, need, want, what ever, to drill weight relief holes into the body of that guitar. I mean it's not done on a CS, and if the Traditional is to remain traditional, then weight relief hole are going in the wrong direction. So it is reassuring that they have stopped, because I use to have a Traditional, and I wnat to get another one, even more so now that the weight relief is a thing of the past. However, I was talking to a sales rep at a local guitar shop today and he was lamenting Gibsons' recent shenanigans with respect to using two laminated 5 mill fret banks instead of the standard single, solid 10 mill blank, though he didn't know on which guitars this was happening. Anyone verify this?
