    You know, £2400 isn't a bad price.

    Well i see the line with the price and the pic but when i click, it's " no longer available "....
    Was expecting it to be more expensive ....but I'll wait for the cheaper versions maybe...

    I was fearing they would be $ 7000-10000, but at that price I might actually afford one.

    Nope, because the scalpers already have come and gone it seems.

    Strange thing is that i haven't seen any even on pre order on other site like musicstore for example. 1st batch for selected retailers ?

    Thomann "oops'd" and let the product page go live early. Happens all the time.

    Guessing they posted the guitar to soon, and not that it actually sold out.

    That would make the most sense given that there's been no hint of it being limited, but this is Gibson so people need to hate.

    Like I said before, whether limited or not, it's going to be difficult to source these things for a bit as Gibson is feeling the brunt of supply chain and staffing woes, to the point that they've postponed the production of certain guitar lines just to keep the bigger sellers in stock.

    If that's the case, I pray I get my trial money soon enough to try it.

    I'm possibly the closest thing to a fanboy Gibson has on this forum, by virtue of having encountered none of the rehashed internet issues in the Gibsons I own, new and used both. And I've had a fair share (for normal people, admittedly - For SSO I'm probably a pauper) of Gibsons to base an opinion on.

    TLDR: this has nothing to do with hating on the brand, whose guitars I all like except the LP for ergonomic reasons.
