I talked to my local L&M rep who said when these become available in Canada they are more likely to be $3699 with the exchange difference. That is insane!

I bought my 2012 Faded Honeyburst Traditional for 1599 and my 2013 Chicago Blue Traditional for 1699 Canadian. HUGE increase in just a few years. People are buying them though, just not me. I'm glad I got my Les Pauls bought before the clown show at Gibson got turned up to 11. :)

I contacted American Musical today to find out what the dealeo is with the pickups which are listed as Classic 59's. This could be a typo or this could signal new pickups for the Traditional are coming down the pipe. The Trad Pro III has new Classic 57 esq alnico 3's. We will see what response I get from Gibson.

Too much money for what you'd get in return. Look at used..

I bought a new 2014 Traditional last Thanksgiving. I had bought a studio in July 2014, but did not like the 2015 models when I saw them so spent the little over 2k to get as close to an old school Les Paul as I thought I would ever be able to afford. The Traditional has a beefier neck and is noticeably heavier than the studio. I think the pickups are 59 tribute humbuckers. It does have the 120th banner, but it seems less obtrusive to me than the additions to the 2015 models.
