Still aways off but the idea came to me now. :laugh2:

We've been seeing anniversary runs every decade, which makes sense. 40ths, 50ths, now 60ths, 70ths are next. 75 is a big milestone. Do you think we'll see a run of 75ths as well?

I'll be 56 in 2034 (yikes!) and probably due for a new guitar.

Probably. I think commemorating the anniversary of the Les Paul is cool.

I objected to the 120th anniversary of Orville Gibson's patent of the mandolin being commemorated on electric guitars. It was not even the anniversary of Gibson as a company. That was 1902. I think this was all Henry and Co. so we will see what the future of anniversary models will be.

Theyll be some models coming up for their 60th too, personall id like to see a 60th anniversary for the 69’ sg. I have an original and would be cool to A/B them, and if gibson would actually release the actual neck dimensions on it

Has Gibson ever not taken advantage of... Well... Anything, just to make a special run? :laugh2:
Jokes aside, I think commeroative editions can be cool

They're still making 60ths now. We've got 8 more years of those before the 70ths come out!

Gibson can always release a" 60th" of the "SG 64 Maestro" ....:)
With their catalogue there is room for many anniversary models .....
And why not an 'LP anniversary' every 5 years.....sure there will be customers...:run:

There will be 70th anniversary memorative toggle switch medallions on all custom shop Les Paul models in 2022 (70th anniversary of the birth of Les Paul Model). Mat, the product development leader of Gibson stated this on another Les Paul forum.

There were over 5k 60th R9s.

Maybe they should limit the number to serials from 9 2001 to 9 2999

As it stands the 60th models are so abundant that they are not anything special. Just another R9.

And, the only real difference is the model designation.
