    I read about these. I think it's cool they're bringing it back for another run.

    I always wanted one back in the day

    i think the ones back in the day were darker pink.
    bet you can find an original much cheaper.

    Yeah, I'd enjoy it for a while before gifting it to my daughter. She loves playing w/my guitars (plucking strings / making sounds), and loves the color pink, so I think there would be an instant draw for her.

    The "new pink" is pretty much the perfect color.

    I picked up this HM back in 90 or 91.. Not a fan of these reissue finishes. The lGS had this, a seafoam green which was cool.

    My cousin had a crackle finish on his and I always wanted one. He sold it years ago without telling me. We haven't talked since. Lol

    The local LGS also had a black crackle HSS HM. The neck had issues.. I opted for the red crackle HM. Being a Gibson guy HH just made sense at that time. That finish is the toughest I've ever seen, it's been thru a lot and still held up well.

    They start streeting next month I believe. I almost created a thread for these as well a few weeks ago but got distracted I guess lol. The rosewood board flavors interest me (think these are gonna be pretty bright sounding guitars so the rosewood boards might be more balanced, just a guess)...wish they had an HH model and chrome hardware. They're tempting super strats for sure...but so is the next batch coming from Charvel, hmmmm, waiting and watching.

    Cross, you are not buying a pink guitar. That's enough of this.
