    It'll be either too much hype for the same traditional, closer to original "new" LP design or some weird stuff like the new, revisited V-shaped design which everyone laughed about.

    Just wondering are these the new Gibsons?

    GuitarGuitar are the ones that let the Ibanez 2019 slip early and I haven't seen these Gib's before + they're on pre-order

    EDIT New Kramer too

    Kinda looks like it. Though, I think some of those basses were shown at NAMM.

    The new Kramer stuff was shown at NAMM.

    I do like the LP bourbon, iced tea, and unburst. But when it comes to Gibson I'd honestly rather pick up a used one that's got some battle scars.

    I am really digging the new collection Gibson has brought out. It’s nice seeing that you can get a Les Paul Standard in either 50s or 60s specs without shelling out a whole lot of cash for a reissue.

    I still think prices could be lowered on these guitars but who hasn’t said that about Gibson already?

    2K£ is still too much for a LP considering a SG or explorer cost nearly half as much unless the pound tanks again.

    The new flying V/Explorer is fucking killer, too bad I don't like satin finishes.

    People put up a big enough stink that they went back to pickup rings for those models. I *think* they might still have them on a particular model, but not across the board.

    Some cool new models for sure, cool prices too. Felt my GAS gland twitch a bit at the 60s standard.

    Those 60 spec models look very cool. I love how they have standards without all the push/pull knobs.

    Dear Gibson,
    Reissue the Voodoo series with the original specs. The JuJu Les Paul was a start. I need the swamp ash Explorer and all guitarists feel the same way. You can also thrown in a Voodoo ES for making us wait this long.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone

    I won't lie, that 60s Standard in the "unburst" color is calling my name.

    I really like the Modern LP, especially as a black top. They throw in a fancy-ass ergonomic heel but no belly cut? Meh...
