Upcoming '70s series Explorer and Flying V from Gibson USA Original Collection.
I have no idea why these guitars represent the '70s. Specifications and shape are like post-1990 models. If they were in the Modern Collection I would say ok. They're much more closer to 120th Anniversary models than to '70s.
Price in europe 1999 Euro = $2225. Way too much.
Double disappointment.

I was in the booth bright and early with nobody bumping into me.

I really liked the 1960 flametop bursts, but the fingerboard edges werent as rolled as the 59's last year.

The BEST LP model I thought was the 57 Custom. The neck was slim, board edges rolled right to the nubs, and the bindings were bladed perfectly.

And I really liked the correct frets on it.

My must-have target if I had one be that Mahogany 58 spec V #2, on the lower right of the wall.

I liked #1 very much the the neck shape on it was so-so. #2 was a little better and both are perfect weight. Korina itself is a very spongey wood so because I couldnt find a Lonnie Mack, the next best thing is this new Mahog model and then uprgrading the tailpiece to a B6 Bigsby and a Vibromate bracket.

The Pelham Blue 68 spec V was also delicious. But so was the brand new Maclaren parked outside the Hilton valet area this morning, which is also beyond my budget.
