I believe that Gibson started making the Trads in 2008. Am I right in assuming this?

Really? I must have got some bad info from Gibson. They said 2008 were the first. Interesting.

Just spoke with Gibson, the Trad was introduced in late 2008. Just to confirm. Nothing before that year.

Evidently Gibson doesn't keep a lot of information regarding Guitars they've built over the years.

I recently called them to get accurate information & the correct Specs for my 2002 Gibson Bozeman Masterbilt J-160E. That was the terminology used when I bought it new from MF back in 2002.

I thought it was a typical J-160E. Plywood Top, Ladder Braced with P90's.... I wasn't very savvy about Guitars then (I still have a lot to learn) but since then I've learned it's a Solid Top, X Braced & has a P100 Pickup.

I called Gibson & gave them the Serial Number. I asked if they could get the Original Specs for the Guitar. After several minutes on hold the Rep came back & gave me information that it was vague. He said he'd check it out & email the accurate Specs..

A few days later I got an email from him. It said, it's a 2002. Hope that helps.

Their Website is better than it used to be but still vague in many areas...

I love my Gibsons & Epiphones but wish I could get more accurate information.
