    Very nice. I ordered the 50s with P90s two months ago . Hopefully it hasn't been abducted by aliens or something . I sure would like to see it

    And the smell. Please describe the very, very sweet smell of nitro when you open the case. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    You don't smell nitro when you buy a Gibson, it always has a scent of bourbun vanilla and light cigar woody tone. I belive they put some perfume in the guitar case thats the first thing you smell when you open the case up.

    Congrats @Achyskic!

    Enjoy that bad boy! I KNOW you will.

    I got my 2019 Standard 50s about a month ago, and I am still completely blown away by it. I played the 60s Standard, and really liked it. I just liked the 50s neck a little better. Gibson really delivered with the new “originals” line!
    The unburst is the best color for the 60s standard!

    I don’t know about the perfume thing, but I do know that after playing a few hours, my hands smell awesome! :D

    My LP Standard smelled like that for at least a year. It's a very distinctive scent...not unpleasant.

    My SG still has the smell and it was made in 2007. I absolutely love it, at first I thought maybe it was the buffing compound they used that was scented, but it's definitely perfumed case

    But sooner or later
