    Its not the most popular thing, but I wouldn't mind seeing a Les Paul thats almost fully chambered show up again. I know they would make the ES style model with the F-holes and stuff, but I wouldn't mind one of the solid top chambered ones just to have it in my collection. They only make them on occasion.

    Neck pickup placement with the bass string side angled towards the bridge.

    I'd love an Epiphone version of the 1969 Gibson Crest Silver.
    I say an Epiphone version because it would be much less expensive - I'd be able to afford it. This not a slam against Gibson. After all, they are the ones that designed and made it.
    A reissue of this guitar would be super mega cool. :cool:
    Here's an example of a vintage original that goes for $6,995.

    Another one would be a 1975 Gibson Les Paul Signature Goldtop
    I've always wanted one of these.
    Here's an example of a vintage original that goes for $3,898.

    Yeah, I had those exact models in mind. With the exception of the standard Casino, though, these are always limited editions and very hard to find.

    I get that there probably isn't a market to support these models as a standard choice long-term. This isn't me saying "Epiphone should do this for the good of the company"; instead, this is me saying "This is something that I think would be really cool for me if it happened."

    Stainless steel frets on the EBMM LIII. Then it would be perfect.

    Gibson: make an SG with straight-ish string pull through the nut. I would buy three of them tomorrow. No joke.

    The Michiya Haruhata signature Strat is very close to this. It is however a Japanese domestic model and has a reverse headstock.

    Epiphone should really reissue the Riviera model with the full size humbucker/mini humbucker pickups, just as the ones they did in the 90s in Peerless, Korea. The P93 model just doesn't feel the same to me.

    I would like to see more maple fretboards. I think there are more available now than say ten years ago, but I'd still like to see more.

    What is gibson's issue with maple fretboards? Those raw power series les pauls and SGs with the maple boards were cool as hell.

    it's hard to imagine Fender doing more, many people think they've got too much variety already.
    imo they should reissue the Rhodes. that would blow some minds if they did it right.

    I want to see Martin do a bolt-on neck, ala Taylor NT neck joint. I might think about buying one again if they did.

    Thread is TL;DR
    I would like to see more nut width options. I like 1 3/4 nuts. There needs to be more electrics with them.
