Yeah, I've seen quite a few of these new at the $600 price point. It's always nice to see people aiming high though

You're saying there are Gibson USA gold top Les Pauls with p90s, new, for $600? Where have those been all my life? Time to go down to GC.

I have an absolutely huge GAS for a Gibson Classic Custom. Such nice guitars for such little money.

I called my guitar center, and they didn't have any in. They had an ebony one in their used database that they wanted $649 for.

Too bad there's no Sam Ash really local for me to try one out.

Looks like the Sam Ash website lists the 50s and 60s tributes at $999, or $1,149 for the gold top.

they were $849 at their most expensive point.

wtf are you looking at?

do i need to buy one and send it to you? because if i do, there will be a fee.

lemme text my bud.

see this is the important thing everybody misses. there's this thing called MAP. MAP is the lowest price that a retailer can advertise a given product at. so when you look online, you will only see MAP.

when you call the store like i tell you to then you talk to someone who can read the tag on the guitar. that tag, doesn't have to say MAP. because it's not an advertisement, it's a price tag. the retailer can drop the price to whatever they want in the store, they just can't advertise it because that would violate their agreement with the mfg.

so when i say call the store, call the ****ing store!!

even if you buy over the phone with the guy in the store, you still have 30 days to return it for full price if you don't like it.

i swear, ****ing engineers...

Christ, man, when I get ready to buy one, I promise I'll call your boyfriend. I was just looking around online.

I was looking at these:

http://www.samash.com/p/Gibson__2099957

Please correct me if those are wrong.

Take 2: The new 2013 traditionals are solid. On your 2nd post, you said the new standards are chambered and the trads weight relieved.

Damn, I feel ******ed. xD

^ darkflame i do believe that the 2013 traditionals will in fact be solid. the traditionals up until 2013 were weight relieved just like every LP made from 1982-2012 with the exception of the historics.

Please correct me if those are wrong.

those are new models that are just coming out. while they don't have the specs listed yet, because they are new models, i'm guessing they have the full gloss finish and are the full body thickness of a usual "studio".

it's the usual same name different guitar thing that gibson is infamous for.

i'm sorry if i came across as condescending, most of my post wasn't really directed at you as much as a get it off my chest rant. because it's just aggravating as hell when you constantly tell people to call a store and speak with someone and they reply with, "look the online ad says this".

yeah no derp the ad says that, that's why i said call the store and not check out the ad online.

You know I'm just busting your balls.

I know exactly what you mean, and when I'm actually seriously guitar shopping, you're extremely helpful, and I always call the guys you tell me to call.

So the standard 60s tributes that are 649, those are low gloss and thinner bodies? That seemed to be the implication up above.

Those are the new ones,SA blew out the old 1's and are more than likely gone. I just sold my ebony 60's for $650 w/HC. I know some people wanna crack on dude but now you have to go find them I did get in on the SA blow out,had Music 123 price match and got it for $506 and they are selling for $600-$750 on the bay and $900 @ MF so if you can still find the blowouts jump on them.
