I agree its very overpriced, but CNC is used everywhere other than little workshops. Personally, I dont want to pay someone to take a couple of days to shape a body that can be done more accurately by CNC in a few minutes.


That's what I'm getting at. I don't have a problem with CNC. Gibson uses CNC on their custom shop models as well. But the top carve is finished by hand.

That top carve finish is unlikely to change as long as they use CNC. 3D surfaces are likely pick-fed with ball nose cutters. The end shape will be ok, but will have machining track marks all over it. Hand finishing is to be expected.

Gibson has too many odd ball models, and most are overpriced. Wish they'd roll all the advancements/upgrades into a new model line and go with that and drop the odd ball limited run offerings.

I mostly agree, but 2 voices in the wilderness are not much better than one.
The overall majority of Gibson buyers don't like change.

The USA HP line is as close too a new model line as they can get away with.
