Hi,

I was searching the electric guitars on Gibson's website (https://www.gibson.com/Custom-Shop), and when I looked at the description for some of the guitars, I noticed that the fretboard material says 'Solid Ebony'. I haven't been in-tune with all of the NAMM update, but does this mean all new LPC going forward will have ebony fretboards again?

Thanks,

Daniel

Oh my... Gibson is actually making a "custom" into a real custom and not a standard with gold metalwork, block markers and a fancy head? Whooda thunkit? :-)

Well that is a better price, but not by much.

Also mentions that the neck tenon is going to be long as well along with the fretboard material being ebony. I think that's a nice feature. Not that I have the funds for a new Custom, but I'm sure some people would like this as well.
