    The J-15 was previously made with a sunburst finish, although it was a bit rare and they did only make a few, but they did exist before the 2018 model.

    Yes indeed, I have one. Who knows how many are actually out there. I wonder if a pre-2018 sunburst J-15 will be a collector's item in the future.

    Gibson will be fine, as will this Union of states. The most likely scenario is Gibson is able to raise enough revenue to refinance its debt. Sure that does nothing but kick the can down a few years, but it's far better than the alternative. There are far too many people making an honest living working at Gibson, and using Gibson instruments, for any other scenario to be desirable - no matter where you stand on the wood raids, or who you voted for in November.

    $99 Epiphone electrics and the new $400-500 Gibson electrics are the result of this - cheap enough to get a lot of new buyers, but good enough so that they don't cheapen the brand too much. Gibson probably makes $25 on each of those $100 Epiphones after all the costs are taken out, and maybe $100-150 on the cheap Gibson electrics. Sell enough of them, and you've got enough new income to appease the bankers and get the refinance you need.

    Is this replacing the DR500 ?

    Are the electronics and build more for less ?

    Looking at the DR500 & AJ45 but will keep my eye on this if its coming out next month [thumbup]

    Don't think it's replacing the DR500 on the lineup. The DR400 looks to have the same electronics in it as the AJ45ME, but I'm not sure. Seems to be a bargain at $400 for a new solid wood dreadnought.
  5. In Topic:Gibson 48 months interest free financing

    Paying interest for a guitar is foolish. Paying it off over 2 years with no interest is a very good deal. I'd do it if I were in the market for a new guitar and they had a deal like that going.
