Les Paul Traditional Changes in 2013


Recommended Posts

I decided to buy a Les Paul Traditional Lefthand and have the opportunity to get a ebony or heritage cherry burst right now.

Regarding the info on Gibson.com, the ebony is an "out of production" model and the heritage cherry burst a new model.

Is that correct? I guess both are a bit older because here in europe they arrive once a year or so ;-)

Are there any changes between These two models or will there be a Change for the 2013 traditional model so i should wait for it?

Ok, so if i compare my honey burst to a stock ebony traditional, the honeyburst should be heavier (more weight) if it is a solidbody guitar,

in contrast to the ebony (which is definitely weight reliefed) right?

I thought about it and the honey burst has to be solidbody because the Color was not an Option in the older series before 2013.

Or is that wrong?

Honey Burst is one of the original 08-11 stable which included Desert, Iced Tea and and Faded (Cherry) Burst

In 2012 they introduced a few new colours but stopped others they made Trans Black. Fireburst & a variety of solid colours.


Edit: The "Caramel" is similar to the original Honey finish & the the "NEW" honey finish is the Faded "Cherry" Burst

Confusing isn't it [confused]
