A number of the instruments that I have seen pictured from the Gibson booth appear to have a new Gibson logo on the headstock.

Anyone know what's up with this?
I am trying not to be all typically guitarist about this and resistant to change, but it seems like a risky thing to do with your market identity.

lol. no not that, and the link above does not resolve for me at the moment.
in fact, the new logo is remenicient of the Godin logo to me.
kind of spagetti strap...

That is absolutely HORRID! I hope they are not changing their logo. The "spaghetti" logo belongs on Fender strats and teles.Just my opinion. Looks weird on a Gibson.

I like the new logo. Change isn't always a bad thing.
But, it would look terrible on a Les paul or an SG.

I wonder if this same conversation took place when they changed the logo from this:

to this:

My neighborhood music store just got a new Les Paul Classic (not a Classic Antique, just a plain ole' green-inlayed Classic) in a satin Tobacco sunburst finish with a cursive Gibson logo. The logo was reminiscent of the old 1800s logo that Gibson put on banjos and mandolins.

I liked the guitar but I didn't like the logo.

I am glad to hear Gibson is finally changing it's logo....now I can sell all my Gibsons as "PRE LOGO CHANGE" and they will be worth so much more.:rolleyes:
