Over the years we've seen many, many new models being offered.of the iconic styles. Is there really anything new in strats, teles, LP's and hollow/semi-hollow guitars that we haven't had for years? To me it seems a lot of re-hashing, finishes and marketing fluff.

Newest thing for me is the number of great options we now have to choose from, so I won't complain. All the new models give you a chance to more easily find a guitar that suits your playing and/or style more closely than in the past. There's a lot less guess work now, which can be good and bad I suppose.

In recent years, the ES-Les Paul was introduced and it's a pretty cool guitar. Guitarists tend to be pretty conservative about stuff like that, especially Les Paul fans, but the few of them that I have played have been pretty fantastic. The one with the solid top (no F-Holes) is especially cool.

Within the past decade, we also saw the ES-339 and the Casino Coupe...scaled down versions of classic semi or hollow guitars. Both of them are comfortable to play and sound great. I still have GAS twinges for a 339 with a fat neck.
