Who wants a 2008 standard?

Those straplocks have got to go . They look like chrome fire hydrants .:-&

They look to be the same as Dunlop strap locks. They just put the strap end on there which does look pretty goofy, but illustrates the point that they have finally included strap locks on these things. If you didn't have the strap portion of the lock on there they look just like normal strap buttons.

I don't understand Gibson's marketing department. Why would they create two distinct model brands--Standard and Traditional. Why not go with something like:


Standard--Modern [chambered, 60s neck]

Standard--Traditional [swiss cheese, 50s neck]


Seems like there would be less confusion that way and they could still leverage the "Standard" brand.
