    Well, the '70s Tributes are probably being blown out for good. And the Traditionals could be slated for a replacement at Winter NAMM next month when all the major line announcements get made.

      The only 'Traditionals' I've seen for $1199 are the all mahogany statin finished versions, not the real Traditionals. Although the did blow out the Traditional Gold Tops for $1399 and a couple discontinued finishes of the Traditional Plus for $1599.



      They're just getting rid of discontinued models, limited runs, discontinued finishes for some models, models with alternate fretboard, etc.

        I think that once people get a taste for these prices they won't be back for more expensive seconds.

          No doubt.



          There's no way I'd pay full price when I can wait until they're blowing out the old models.

                    Well, these blow-outs have been exceptional, and yeah, it might cause their sales to slouch a bit when they try to work their way back to normality. But a lot of the models on blow-out had the maple, obeche or Richlite fretboards. Now that they've got their rosewood supplies back, they seem to be dumping their "innovations/waves of the future".



                    That said, I bought a total of six 2011/2012 Gibsons with the alternative FB woods (5 BMs + 1 Rl). On 3 of them I got in on some pretty sweet deals, but on the other 3 I merely got discounted deals and not the crrrrrAzy Sam Ash deals. But I'm fairly happy with all of them - so far.



                    But Gibson is probably banking that there is some pent up demand for Gibson guitars once the BM, Obeche & Richlite is gone from their entry priced gits.



                    I'll be curious to see if they hang onto the BM for some of their models. I really didn't mind it and thought it had some benefits over cheap specimens of rosewood.



                    Personally, I keep hoping "I'm done". But I've said that before and then something comes along . . .

                    Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                    I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                      There are still baked maples out there. I think if the Custom Classics get blown out eventually, I'll be laying down the card for one. They also have other "Classic" models I noticed on Amazon last night. Not sure if those are new or old but they have torrified maple boards too.

                          They already did, and it looks like they're all gone (at least at Sam Ash and MF). They dropped them to $1599, which wasn't as big of a blow out as some of the other models, but it was apparently enough to clear out the inventory...

                            Oh wow.. didn't realize that was the discounted price. Oh well.. guess I won't be getting one of those. Not that i need it anyway. I actually bought zero Gibsons during that hoopla and I really wanted the Midtown Custom. I just didn't have the money to shell out. I did end up with a Squier Mustang and a BC Rich Mockingbird Classic Series (neck through) bass for <$300 total. I couldn't believe that M123 PM'd the BC Rich Bass which sold on their site for $699 and the other retailer for $299 with a net price of $149 (not sure where that math came from but I didn't complain). THere is a guy over there that keeps hooking me up which has restored my faith in M123. Although, I called this morning the guy over couldn't do anything without putting me on hold for 5 mins. I gave up after about 20 minutes and sent the guy who posts on here an email and he responded less than an hour later.
