I was led to believe that there wasn't going to be a standard or traditional Les Paul for 2019. But if you think about it there is. All Gibson have done is changed the name. The new traditional is essentially the new standard 50s and the new standard is the standard 60s. The only difference with the new 60s standard compared to older standards is the lack of locking tuners, no locking bridge and tailpiece and no push/pull tapping/phasing pots. It's still a case of one has a 50s neck and the other has a 60s neck. Everyone made a big deal that the price of the new standard (now called a 60s standard) had come down (only by £100) for the first time in years. Look at it the other way and you realize that the price of the traditional (now called the 50s standard) has increased by £500. What does everyone else think?
