    "New Model Year serial numbering system enhances collectability"

    as well as

    "One-piece fingerboards enhance sustain"

    Er...were they using two/three piece fingerboards?

    But some of those do look cool.

    Don't know specs, yet, but the initial info seems promising, ESPECIALLY if those prices listed are MSRP (but I doubt it).

    Also says that ALL of the models are Plek'd...hmmm...

    Yeah, that made me laugh out loud :D

  9. I like the looks of the new studio but couldn't find a write up on the website.

    The blue one looks like it has binding. It might be a mistake or faux binding, but that's awesome on a more budget model.

    I liked this line...
    "Cryogenically treated frets are the longest lasting frets ever made."

    At least they're starting to react to the consumer, instead of assuming the consumer should react to them.

    I was going to say - comparable to stainless steel? I don't know. Some of those look nice but I have problems with some of Henry J's decisions..

    Say what you will, he still does the best live drunk Jimmy Page impression in the world!

    I'm diggin' that EB bass.
    never seen one of those before, that I can recall.

    not too impressed with the SG offerings though.
    damn zebra pickups :mad:

    dunno what that Min-ETune is, but pretty sure I don't want it.

    It's that weird motorized tuner deal that is supposed to tune the guitar for you.

    eww, yuck.
    yeah, I definitely do NOT want that.

    Seems like Henry noticed all the complaints about sloppy fretwork on the low-end models. A PLEK job makes those cheapies much more attractive.

    Everything you didn't want in a new guitar.

    And they're ditching those awful Corian nuts for Tusq. Maybe they'll also hire someone who actually knows how to cut the slots properly!

    If they had just ditched some of the really heinous low-end finishes this would be a killer lineup throughout.

  35. Could be cool.
    Like the colors. Purple, green, blue...

    But, will I have to buy the proprietary strings?

    meh...I didn't like the 2013 models and I don't much care for the 2014 models. If I ever get another Gibson, I'll go the used route.
