  • New Gibson 2013 models at Sweetwater - whoa!!!

    Holy CRAP! No wonder Gibby done blowed out a bunch of stuff - they got a manure pile of new stuff coming in (oh, and robots are back...sorta...):


    This used to be a great place. Thanks, GCI, for killing it.See y'all at Wein's.

    They added some gloss models,added some ETune on others and added some humbuckers on others and raised the prices from what I see...I like a couple of them

      Yeah, the SG Standards were bumped up $100 to $1299, but they now have '57 Classics

        Looks a lot like "more of the same" to me. Gibson is either stuck with the tried and true, or they go ape-**************** and make some weird, ridiculous thing no one would ever want. I guess "more of the same" is their best bet.

          why the pickguard hate by Gibson?

            Wow. Those are some interesting options. Granadillo is still coming on the Studio while the cheapie "J" models have rosewood. Steinberger tuners on the Future models and Min-ETune on Tributes (supposedly on forthcoming Epiphones, too).

              Less time to drill the holes and now they can charge for them

                Why proof reading is good.

                On the retro side, the 2013 Gibson SG Tribute Future starts off with a traditional 24-fret fingerboard, a lightweight mahogany body, and a set of '57 Classic pickups that give you timeless PAF humbucker tone. But that's where SG convention breaks off. For instance, the SG Tribute Future's bridge pickup is actually a '57 Classic Plus, which provides you with a much spicier, hot-rodded humbucker sound that's more suitable for modern aggressive playing styles. An asymmetrical '60s neck carve also bridges the gay between traditional high-speed slimness and modern versatility. And wait till you get a load of these funky 40:1 Steinberger Gearless Tuners. Are you ready for something different? Get your Gibson SG Tribute Future from Sweetwater!

                        I feel a lot better about the 70s Tribute Goldtop Studio I just bought for $509 seeing that the 2013 Goldtop Studio is 1549 and the 2013 70s Tribute Goldtop is $1349. Binding is pricey!

                          Looks like a cat without ears.

                          Can't wait to receive my gold top studio.

                            Pickups look like EMG's but they are only black covers (498/490's)

                            $1,199 (with auto tune)

                            Looks like Gibson has a Peavey like auto tunning set up now

                              i'm digging the gritty look of this one, the price is kinda nice too. Not sure the pickups would be great but a swap is easy enough.
