Thanks for the heads-up
:applause::applause:


No G-FArce :thumb:
No Zero-Fret :thumb:
No 46mm nut :thumb:

did you notice the very detailed specs...

weight of the tuners, tailpiece, strap-button etc.
dimensions of the slots for every single string...

nonetheless I don't plan to buy any Gibson in 2015....:naughty:

Great, but what's up with the stupid small pickguard on the 335?

If they've gone with larger 50's-like neck thicknesses, I'll be REALLY pissed off…..


….that it took so long! And that I've already got sop much sunk into a Historic '59.


Edit: read specs more closely…still the (very) slim neck. For me, a bummer but still kinda' reassuring as well. :)

Les Paul ES? And Les Paul ES bass? Woof. What a couple of outright dogs.

I know I'm in the minority here but I really want a red 335 Studio.

Well I know I got my hopes up too soon. Almost everything that isnt a Historic or the BB King has the new smaller "low profile" frets. If the frets are anything like the 2015 Gibson USA line then most of these are probably ruined IMO. I'll wait to try them before saying definitely though.

Whats that?
Beats the heck out of me . It says the neck binding is rolled off (probably "rounded off" ) to fit the contour of the players hand. Personally I have no problem with the binding the way it is . If they did it that way so no one at the factory gouged up the fretboard with a file and prevented orangepeel when they sprayed the neck I say bring it on. When the reproduce a early 2000 Gibson those things will be "period correct" appointments with the Historic line.

Except for the "low profile" frets, I like the changes. A comparable Heritage is less expensive, though.

Gibson Memphis seems to have their Sh*t together..
I do like that they use the Kluson double rings on the '63 Reissue, although I hate the clear plastic that is used, but it's far more period correct than a single ring Kluson, too bad Gibson doesn't do this on the '61 SGs that the double ring would be more correct for..

Oh wow, very cool. Great post.
The ES series are my fav models

1) Glad to see the 2014 Studios returning. A great model and great value. Now in wine red: sweet! No longer available in black: lame.

2) Block inlays on the Standards and Satins, cool.

3) The Satins are $2699! That's so crazy. The Satins were introduced as a value model and are now $1K more. So wack.

4) Burstbuckers in the Satins and Standards, and not Classic 57s. That's kind of weak.

Milk bottle? Does this mean kidney peg tuners? When did this milk bottle term start...

I just noticed the 2015 Studios have black binding on both the body and neck.
Very cool! I love black binding.
If only it came in cherry...
