Honestly I don't know. Does anyone know if any of the 2015-2016 guitars have laminate rosewood boards?

Thanks!

Not anymore, no.

I find it a bit comical that they advertise on their site as their guitars having '1 piece fretboards' as though that's some kind of distinctive selling point. It's understandable why they've mentioned it in light of the laminate fretboard BS, but it's still like... wow.... 1 piece board.... Such quality.... Many wow.

I think the fretboards themselves are thicker on the 15/16 model years too for some odd reason. Like with G-Farce, the customer demographic Gibson was going for on their market research was probably the people of Narnia when they decided that this was what people wanted.

It's an American advertising thing. I wouldn't be surprised to find someone offering "gluten-free" guitars, somewhere over here.

TBH, the only reason people aren't advertising certified organic guitars is probably difficulty getting certification for a forest rather than a farm.

Gluten free non-GMO guitars.

High in fiber tho

It seems Gibby has been doin weird stuff with their fretboards since the BS 2011 raid by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The financial disruption to Gibson was considerable – a $250,000 settlement, a $50,000 payoff to environmentalist groups, over $2 million in legal fees, plus the cost of production lost while shut down by the raid.

IIRC they had stopped using them in 2013 or so on most of their models?

Yeah I think it was 11-12 where you had the ply boards and then late 12 they went 2 piece boards. Sometime in 2013 they stopped the 2 piece boards and went solid boards again. AFAIK though no 2013 RIs have multi-piece boards but I'm sure there is an exception somewhere


Nice, what kind?

hahahahahaha

here too. i've seen adverts for things as "gluten-free" which never had gluten in them in the first place. like advertising apples as "banana-free".

Gibson got into some trouble with the FEDs awhile back, as in had some endangered exotic woods protected under the Lacey Act they were not suppose to have here in the US, Thus they started making boards from Torrefied Maple, Which in a sense is a heat/pressure treated press board, Which is what I believe your referring to, Today they've got back to real wood, Just not the endangered species type,

^ yeah i know, german supplier with shady deals the first time around and a mis-classification of "finished" fretboards not being quite so etc. the second time around. i just wasn't sure if they were back to using solid wood fretboards anymore. fwiw i like baked maple, almost bought a warmoth baked maple neck when i was neck shopping.

i've been suffering from firebird gas something fierce.

i guess the irony is that the firebird is essentially a big laminate guitar
