Don't get me wrong. I love Gibson's. I have a traditional LP 2011 (iced tea burst) that is outstanding. But, 'The Skills House' kept me coming back here each week. They, Gibson, have been cranking the price up, especially with the 2015 line (with questionable 'improvements') pushing them to be unreachable for many players. I realize this is a topic for another thread and still love my LP, but I have no need to frequent this site on a regular basis anymore as I fall into that category. Have a good one.
