I didn't realize Gibson still sold amplifiers!

I'm sure they are very affordable too. Do they ever sell any? ;)

If the 2019 Special is as nice as my 2016 Japanese market Special, it will be a very nice guitar and Gibson won't have a problem selling them.

I've played a few of their used smaller offerings and they sound pretty good, not sure about pricing but the vintagey Gibson 'Champ' sitting at L&M a while ago was a lot cheaper than the Fender version.

I saw an ad pumping the new Explorer. Looked the same as the 2018 model. Someone rumoured there may be some Korina models revealed at NAMM.

Oh wow. I thought they were all branded Gold Tone. Are these reissues of the 50s and 60s amps or new designs. Those vintage ones are substantially vheaper than Fenders of the same era. They also.sound bad ass. Jim Hall held onto his (can't remember the model but it was the one that had 1 10 and 1 12 inch speaker) until he died I think.

Poor Gibson. Between a rock and a hard place.

Half the players want them to succeed in spite of themselves, and the other half want them to fail because of it. Damned if you do, pass the popcorn.

The SG w/Maestro is $2,000 US. A regular new Standard is $1,500 US and Maestro models are typically only $100 more, so that doesn't really add up.

My wallet's thankful that nothing on that list interests me.
