Gibson 2016, no robo tuners?

Typo or what? If not typo, does this mean 2016 lines will no longer use the robot tuners and laser stickers ?

"Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus 2016 T Guitar with Case Heritage Cherry Sunburst"


Seems confirmed..

They were pretty unpopular, just one more contributing factor to people not buying Gibbies.

Like all those things, they were an attempt at being "progressive" without considering the 50-year-overdue redesign of the Les Paul.

Overdue? They fixed the Les Paul when they released the SG in 1961.

Yup, seems as if Gibson will be ditching all the 2015 specs people didn't like for whatever reason and also dropping their prices back to 2014 equivalents.

Yup, it seems to be true.
Same news is going around on the various Les Paul forums as well.
I guess maybe Henry J. actually listened to minds other than his own warped brain.

Gibson redesigns the Les Paul every year or two, and has for decades. Their customers won't buy anything that strays too far from the Standard recipe, though, so those models fall by the wayside. The market doesn't want a redesigned LP, at least not from Gibson.

I wonder if that Traditional model is representative of the whole lineup, or if they're only reverting that model to earlier specs. The brass nut and the wider spacing were a bit less contentious than the other changes, it will be interesting to see if those disappear on the rest of the models for 2016. It would mark a real change as regards Harry J actually listening to customers. Seems more likely that he died months ago and his reanimated corpse is running the show.
