Thx for that Friends,

i thought a second about grabbing my 2016 when i got it, drive to the shop with the 2018, and compare them. Worst thing would be, i like the 2018 more than my 2016. But i dont wanna send the 16 back and pay 1800 on top for the 18.
Think this is going to far :-) Laugh.............................

Are you sure - could be quite a mission. And maybe - if the 18 flies above the 16 - a deal could be made.
In both cases it would give perspective and reassure you the right Bird is in your hands. An invaluable feeling when it comes to high-end guitars, trust me. .
You just can't keep coincidences down. .

By the way, Gibson wrote me that the 2016/18 are exactly the same guitars. Only the color changed. Thatís it.....

Unless he's listing it at Gibson's suggested retail price, getting a shop to come down 1/3rd off his price is definitely "a mission'. First you'd have to get the shop to put on the same new strings you put on you 2016 and hope they're both humidified at the same level. Then, if you feel his guitar is better, you'd have to convince him to lower his price 33% to match the price on an "inferior" guitar you got off the internet. That would wipe out his profit and cause him to lose money on the sale. If he IS listing at the "MSRP" you might get him to come down. I'd guess 10%.

Congratulations. Play it. Stick on a Tone-rite when youíre away. Repeat. :-)
Standard J-45 - you might want more guitars than this one but you don't need 'em

I just got my Sweetwater catalog. Holy Cow - the new HB Vintage is a bit pricy ain't it.

I still have my 2016 Hummingbird Vintage and love it ! It's become my favorite over my Martin D-18 and others.

I had the 16 Vintage, and am one who let his go. I wish I hadnít.
Enough said.
