Beautiful ! , I like them both, but the Traditional Flame I think I like a bit more.

Interestingly (for the first time I think) they have given an indication as to what to expect from the different grade tops

So these come without factory-mounted pickguard? Would have wished that for my nice AA Traditional 2013, too. :( On the other hand, I like the 50's neck, and my 2013 model was significantly cheaper. :)

 

The Traditional Light might be the option for those who missed the Custom Light last year. In case one dislikes the mini switch and wants a second tone control, one could switch to using a push/pull pot instead for creating more traditional looks, or two (or three or four) for adding even further versatility.

Finally!

 

Trad with 60`s neck!

 

Donny, isn`t that`s what You were asking Gibson for? ;)

 

'59 pickups, 500K pots too...

 

...You are lucky in the US. It's priced correctly. Imagine how much it will cost here in Europe. [cursing]

 

Cheers... Bence

Crikey.

 

IMO those particular tops and finishes range from 'Meh' to 'Unbelievably Hideous'.

Obviously there will be others in the range whose looks I'd find more attractive but, still, there are more things about those guitars' specs that I don't like than I do like.

 

Each to his/her own, of course.

Those tops ARE funky looking. You'd figure they's have some better looking specimens for the pictures. [scared]
