Gibson guitar sale @ Sam Ash... Revenge of the 2015's ( and 2014's and 2016's) !
Third time's the charm. Les Paul Standards... in da House!
My SA rep called to give me the inside track on another Gibson Blowout, lol.
-They're getting another 700 units, mostly 2015 models but there are 2014 SGM's and a 2016 Standard T (in Fireball finish).
-prices range from $400 (Les Paul CM) to $1700(Les Paul Standard), with a whole mess in between
11 12 different models to choose from. Still no Classics in Seafoam Green
-2015 Les Paul Traditional in Placid Purple
This one's like the Ocean Blue model from a few weeks ago.
-2015 Les Paul CM
To me, it's a more basic Les Paul jr., with a Maple top and neck. Takes fugly to 100 . And it's the least "2015" of the 2015 models.
-2016 Les Paul Standard "T" in Fireball
The "T" models reverted back to more traditional build specs. If you hated what they did with the 2015's, then this is the one you want.
-2015 Les Paul Standard in Trans Amber or Tobacco Sunburst
I swear they don't want to just kill my wallet, but my chances at buying anything for the next 10 years.
-2014 SGM in Fireburst or Vintage Burst
The 2014's had the anniversary banner at the 12th fret. And yup, people were pissed about that too
-2014 LPM showed up again
-the movie star... and the rest:
*they still have the Doublecuts and SG's from the original sale
*there is a 2015 LP Less+ Goldtop, but unless you want the super light and slim body of the Less+ model, call Chicago Music and check on their Deluxe Goldtop (assuming they still have mint models available). See Labor Day post for details.
*same goes for the 2015 Firebird. Call Chicago Music Exchange
Curse you Gibson for getting over your hoarding ways (or was it desperately needing a cash infusion). Me and wallet need a break!
