    The line has changed some over the last couple of years with a few models with different features added but the current Montreal Premier HG has a MAP of $1595. They have SD pickups now. I got mine a couple of years ago for right at 1K, new. That was when they had Godin branded G&B pickups (which I really like and have had no desire to swap out). For a Godin guitar to be sold as a "blemish" (they call it SF) doesn't take much at all so they pop up often enough. That's how I got mine. It was flawless other than the clear poly (or whatever they use) was applied a touch too heavy on the front side of the headstock.

    I can't stand when they judge you based on how you are dressed. I usually go for the farmer look and I have to point out to the employees "My credit score is probably higher than your SAT score." But one time I went in just after I had a big meeting in town dressed up all nice, and they just wouldn't leave me alone.

    You must have been flaunting the I am a lawyer look and they figured they could sell you their most expensive Les Paul.

    You don't believe sales staff are trained to have a discriminating, ageist-classist-racist-sexist-incomist "face control" eye????

    What's next, Santa Claus is coming back to usurp Uncle Sam and we'll all be living in a Communist Utopia flying around in robocars by Christmas next???

    What would you add to make the Gibson lineup better???add back the white Les Paul Studio....add a PRS knock off with a flamed maple top that doesn't look like the side of a circus wagon and no freaking birds falling down the fretboard...

    Something like this maybe. I'd buy one from Gibson if they built it right.

    My post # ?? Now with pics. I was gonna suggest a Dean Icon if that Modern Double cut gives you a boner but the price leaves you with ED (Economic Dysfunction)

    They make a few versions, at a low medium and high price point (The USA being half the Gibby price):

    This one is from Reverb for $650




    Also available in Amber, tobacco-is, charcoal burst, and for under $1k green and blue with a Floyd. And to get the Kiddies hooked....there is a $299 bolt on.

    Why did it take so long to sculpt the heal down?

    And what's wrong with a tummy cut?

    The thinner body on the Lite series was awesome

    The necks on the standard USA model, the Cherry Burst, is a thinner C shape, but not as thin as say a Warmoth standard thin. It's been a while since I played a 60's Gibson neck, but these are just a hair wider at 1 11/16th at the nut. The neck feel is similar enough to a Gibson 60's though as to not be extremely different. The neck on the middle and last one, the Spalted Maple, is a very soft V, and it's extremely comfortable. My favorite neck shape honestly. All of the Dean necks I've played, except one, have been thinner as opposed to thicker and very fast feeling. I haven't played much of their vintage stuff, but Dean's necks all seem geared towards fast, thinner and comfortable. Not thin like an Ibanez though. Maybe around .75-.80 at the 1st fret and no more than .85 ish at the 12th. 16" radius if I remember correctly.

    The ebony boards, jumbo frets and lack of binding make them feel super smooth and quick. The 3/4" thick carved maple cap and Honduran mahogany bodies (used from 02-05 approx.) give them a tone similar to a LP, but with slightly less wool, more clarity and some added brightness. Dean really used top quality woods and hardware the first few years. I love love love my 57' RI LP, but if forced to choose I'd keep the Hardtail's.
