I am really piqued by this interesting development. Gibson is introducing new “Elite” instruments. At the moment, this includes a Firebird, an Explorer, and a Les Paul Studio.
The Gibson Explorer Elite is the recent “Aged Cherry”, similar to the Angus Young Thunderstruck SG, plus gold hardware.
The new ones are all gone now, but you can see the specs here at zZounds. zZounds is good people and has great guarantees!.

Folks ask me nearly every week where they can get a Gibson RD Artist like my White 2014 RD. They were available for a short time three years ago and are still nearly impossible to find.
Gibson has a new RD release this year, in limited quantity. A few sites have them for pre-order. If you are like me, a huge RD fan, it might be a short time to be in line for one of these before they are gone. I can’t predict the future, so they might be around for a while, but if the 2014 Limited Run is any gauge, the 2018 Limited Anniversary Gibson RD Artist might not be around for long. These are no longer available new these days. You can see the specs here, or look at the great deals zZounds has going. They have good prices and great guarantees.
This new release is also hundreds of dollars less than my 2014 Gibson RD Artist was when it was new! The price is a relative bargain!
Have you pre-ordered yours yet?

I’m quite happy about this!
The 2018 Gibson Les Paul Studios have BINDING-OVER-FRET binding and Grenadillo fingerboards…
And they have hard cases, too! Wow. Even with no price increase! Click and read (and drool!)
