Well they're out!. The Vintage Cherry 2018 Gary Clark Jrs are popping up everywhere. Most all the big online retailers have them listed or will be by weeks end. It would be nice if it takes off and becomes a mainstay in the SG line, but I noticed they are coming with a "Gibson SG LIMITED EDITION HARDSHELL CASE Black" case. They were the standard brown hard shell case for 2017. My yellow GC is just awesome, I'm liking it more and more every day.
