calling it now...next years new 'artist' model....MAP price 29999...but they'll throw in some more sunglasses and a sleeveless garage shirt
I’m not buying any of this. How can ‘the bursts’ collectively be all similar?The bursts just have that "bounce" as I call it with the hollow multilayer overtones that are dirty and clean all together. That's the one thing that seems to separate the vintage from the new, even with the boutique pickups, they just can't get that last 10%. My historic makeovers came close with Wizz and vintage caps, but still on the search to find one that gets it.
.Your post was fine. The fact that Slash bought it, and will probably hide it away, never to be seen or more importantly, heard again, is what I found was the "so what" aspect of my post.
After 40 years as a fender guy I just bought a Gary Moore Burst Les Paul that lQQks like that guitar! I can't put it down .... rings like a bell!Is this the Burst that started the "Grill Mark" matched-top craze? Doesn't do much for me, especially knowing that it was encased in plastic at one point.
Good for Slash though - at least it will get played.
Because he didn't own it when the process started for the recent Slash model (6-12 months earlier).Why did Gibson not release this as the next "Slash" model over the lame excuse they previously did?
IMO if they are going to release a "new" "Slash" model, at least make it interesting. The latest one seemed pretty lame, other than they wanted to hype the Brazilian rosewood.
Get a room.Totally off topic (but not in regards to Slash)... He definitely looks like he's been lifting heavier/more etc. His shoulder girdle, arms and especially his forearms look better developed than in recent memory. As a competitive weightlifter in my 50's, it's cool to see older dudes staying in shape. Maybe he did it in part as a $(#$( you to Axl, who looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow man these days
