I don't own one myself, but I'd bet 10 years from now pre 2019 Traditionals will be a lot more desirable and sought after than the 2019 50s Standards.

Once the smoke clears from all the marketing hype of the new regime, I think we're going to see a lot more dumbing down in the USA line with fewer options available and more cost cutting features marketed as "back to basics".

On the flip side, I think we'll see a lot more variety coming out of the Custom shop with the rise of m2m dealer exclusives :)

Why?. They are basically the same guitar, except the new 50's Standards have a few upgraded features. Neither one has any modern added features like push/pulls, non-standard neck profiles, or anything else.

If it were answered, I wouldn't have asked. There are no new features on the new 50's Standards over the Trads other than improvements. I think you are confusing the 50's/60's Standards with the previous Standard that had all the push/pull functions and the different neck profile. The new Standards are just the same as Trads except for those few little improvements in cosmetics and such.

Hi everyone, this is my 2015 Traditional Japan Edition. It was made for Japan market, has G-force tuners but no other 2015 'enhancements' . I just love the sound of Gibson 59 tribute humbuckers.!

It`s also nice to see how a different light changes the maple top pattern:

I tried uploading some pics of my modded traditional from my tablet but it says they're too big.
Any help? What can I do?

Go to your gallery and open up the picture. Take a screenshot of it and crop out the black edges. I did the same thing. My original file size was 7mb.
