    Default 2019 Gibson Lineup

    They havenít gone crazy which is nice to see. A couple of models have caught my attention.

    The new ES235

    http://www.gibson.com/Products/Elect...235-Ebony.aspx

    And the LP Jr Tribute DC

    http://www.gibson.com/Products/Elect...e-DC-2019.aspx

    It looks like Iíll have to wait for the ES-330.

    Anything you guys like?

    I'm surprised. Not a single model I don't like, based off of looks alone. I'm glad they didn't go completely overboard on the HP lines too. 1 Les Paul and 1 SG; they don't try to force them on us like in the past. I see some lower prices too.

    Fingers crossed that QC shows improvement as well this year.
    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    That LP Jr DC looks great!

    That said, I need another guitar like I need a hole in the head.

    That pickguard on the Junior looks like it came off a Deluxe Telecaster.... NO, on the pickguard shape. YES, on the Junior with a single P-90.

    Just missing a honeyburst/lemonburst Traditional. I like the red and blue LPs. I’ll pass on the HPs, but they aren’t for me anyway. Jr. is killer.
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    $1,700 for a Les Paul Studio is a bad move...they should bring the Studio (not faded or worn crap) back down to under a grand...
    http://www.gibson.com/Products/Elect...udio-2019.aspx
    and the tangerine burst looks silly...(maybe with bindings it would work)....just stick with black and white...
    and no gold hardware option...
    they are just killing what was a great product...

    then the overpriced high performance LP models in fruit loops colors and nothing high performance about them....

    The DC looks great, surprised it's a maple neck though. I wonder what the route is like under the pickguard - I'd be tempted to stick a humbucker in there.

    I don't think a LP studio should have neck binding. Seems like an unnecessary cost for a bare bones model.

    I agree that a Studio should be priced lower than that. But I can't remember Studios being under a grand since about Y2K or so. About the same time, Standards were about $1,400Ė$1,600 IIRC, and a bona-fide Custom/Art/Historic LP Custom reissue was only about 3 grand retail. I bought my '02 Studio Plus new for $1,200Ė$1,300, I think. Those were maybe $200 more than a regular Studio (which bought you flamed maple and gold hardware back then).

    I like the SG Standard ‘61 but I feel the price is to high.

    I was looking at some Heritage guitars yesterday. And as we know they make some NICE guitars. The average price for an H150 was +\- $2200-2400.
    The most expensive one was about $3200.

    From what Iíve see of these new Gibson models, the LP Standard is STARTING at $3300!!!
    Címon Gibson.
    If Heritage can make a sweet guitar and make a profit at $2400, why canít you?
    Is the price gouging really necessary???

    Look! A cherry finish on a Les Paul! A Flying V in natural! Another overpriced one-pickup guitar with zero features! Gibson has really outdone themselves this time!

    Gibson does stuff like 2015, everyone hates it. They do what they do best everyone else hates it.

    In 1995 paid $600 for a new black Les Paul Studio, gold hardware, no case, no gig bag from Musicians Discount Warehouse..... Based on inflation calculator indicating a 1995 dollar is at $1.61 today... the Les Paul Studio should be priced at $966...but if Gibson was doing it's job as a manufacturer with continuous improvement programs the should have been able to hold the price somewhere between $600 and $966...

    I really wish they would follow the EC-1000 series for one whole line (LP, V and explorer), and focus on higher output pups and a shreddier neck, use their HP neck heel, plus offered ss frets and a floyd rose. Then they use a nice flamed maple top for a decent price because there’s no way flamed maple tops cost them hundreds more. Everyone should know what a scam their damned cosmetics are. No need for binding though. Offer them for $2000 usd.

    I really think those model would sell well. But they need to do away with their scammy cosmetic upgrade scheme and make their lower priced models look better - because it’s obvious they are making them look ****ty on purpose.
