    Gibson put a countdown clock on their web site. Two weeks out. Can’t wait to see the specs.

    It looks like lots of variations of the same model
    Why can’t the make one great model of each line they used to
    I love les Paul’s but would never even consider buying a new one when I could get a used one that’s more of what I like them for at much less

    Yeah, it’s almost as bad as the number of different Stratocaster models Fender makes. o_O

    My guess is the "New Collection" will either:
    A) re-affirm that under JC, Gibson is focusing on making vintage-flavored guitars in tasteful colors
    B) be a streamlined distillation of new ideas/models (in lieu of Henry's tasteless shotgun/dart board approach) in addition to the core models
    C) simply "not suck"
    D) all of the above

    An authentic veteran of hundreds of gigs in smoke-filled bars from coast to coast.

    Funny how designs from the 1950s and early 1960s can still generate excitement. Guess they got it right from the start.

    Just wait until the new collection is released. I'm sure some are waiting to see what's offered first, before they unleash their butthurt cannons. It'll be interesting to see which, and how many, Gibson models that weren't around before 1970 get dumped from the lineup.

    "I just wish they'd make that exact model, except with jumbo frets, in greenish blue, and with locking tuners. THEN I might buy it, but only if it's $500 max."

    If this new collection is what they previewed at NAMM then it's a good change of direction from the awful stuff they've been making for the last few years.
