New this year for Gibson

The prices look reasonable. Maybe I've been out of the States too long.  :(

Hi HJ! Actually those prices are pretty much "Status Quo", or as a saying goes, "nuthin' to write home about". At least that's my take. I think models below the Les Paul Traditional have some form of weight relief  (ie "chambered" or "Swiss cheesed"). I tried a couple ('09 and '11 Studio models) and didn't like 'em at all. I still have my  1971 Les Paul Deluxe...... now that's a Les Paul.

I like some of their new colors, but there are a lot of models with maple necks and scrap wood mahogany bodies.  Some of their fretwork is bad too.  I'd never buy until I tried it.
