    I really just think that a guitar that is over $850 it shouldn't be having any QC Bs. Especially once you break through the $1300 price point there should be NO bullshit. I could only imagine getting a new jackson custom shop or a gibson usa standard and spending thousands and it having some bs to it, that would infuriate me and get me to calling people and yelling about that (I am not one of those people so for me to do that you really have to fuckin piss me off)

    Honestly as I said this should really be a standard for all brands, please give us good guitars that have been QC'd thoroughly ffs

    I just seen a video from Premier Guitar with the new guy at Gibson Cesar and the Gibson USA lineup looks amazing . The Custom Shop lineup made my head explode in ecstasy . So awesome as I have to find the money to buy a new Gibson Custom Shop R9 Les Paul

    I'd rather have a Floyd than a pick guard.

    Wait a second, I'm confused... aren't Gibson's USA guitars now a knock-off of the better ones made in China?

    Months ago, at the Sam Ash in Edison, NJ, the guitar sales guy was telling me that 4 or, was it 5?, Gibson 335's had to go back to Gibson.

    Neck twists.

    There was a Memphis Custom Shop 335 going back too.

    Expensive guitars all.

    Keep smiling, the boss loves idiots.

    Nice going Gibson.

    That is odd. Do you think it is a mistake? I was looking at their other models and on the website they released a fuck ton more of new gibsons on there.

    Either it is a screw up or like they are discontinuing it for whatever reason

    Winter NAMM was last week thats when the new line up for guitars & gear rolls out.
    What you saw before NAMM was Gibson trying to get rid of back stock.
    The last few years Gibson didn't even attend NAMM under Juszkiewicz
    Good to see them back.
    Any Gibson thats cheap @ retail prices is a Gibson you don't want.

    Modern was already discontinued once in recorded history, so it shouldn't be too surprising that it got deep sixed again.

    I'm digging the SGs w/vibrolas. Wonder if they have the tuning issues like the one I had in the late 60s / early 70s.

    I do agree, but by that standard....the LP Standard (no pun intended) was discontinued in history also (thankfully, because I love SG's), but also glad the LP's came back.

    If Jimmy Page an others had played a Modern through out their entire careers the LP may not have been a reissue success.

    No, you are correct but they were snap ons to the pup rings on theh 2015 model years. Was cheezy looking.

    Well could be. It was announced at NAM after he left though. Strange.
