This is the next LP I want to buy. Anyone heard if Gibson is going to discontinue these? Is anther price hike coming soon?

If they do discontinue them can you still order one as a custom?

My fear is since I wont be able to purchase one until 4 to 6 months from now they will be gone and not avaliable anymore.

A picture would be nice. Most guitars even after being discontinued are usually available through Gibson dealers. Their stock just doesn't disappear when guitars are discontinued. I still see Classics and pre-'08 standards at Guitar Center, Sweetwater, & First Quality Music to name a few. Good hunting. Also check the Gibson website under products to see if they still show it there.

The standard faded series has already been discontinued. Discontinued last year I believe. I'm sure you can still find some new ones that are unsold in local guitar stores or CV guitars. You can oogle mine in the mean time -

Thanks rocketman. Didn't change the pups but I did put nickel covers on them. I will take better pictures of it if and when the sun ever decides to come out again here in Michigan.

Nothing wrong with a full gloss tobacco burst. Maybe even better IMHO.

Yeah, Standard Faded's got discontinued last year. You could pick them up just after for about 900 new. Dunno how much they go for now though.

You might be lucky and find one new for a real good price.
