    They need to issue them with the following finishes:

    Vintage Cherry
    Ebony
    Classic White
    TV Yellow (translucent, not opaque)

    Offer a small guard version with Slim Taper neck in Original Collection.
    Offer a batwing version with fat rounded neck in Modern Collection.

    Eliminate the SG Tribute.

    Interesting, I don't see the old colors anymore either, so these must be replacing them.

    That is interesting! The Sparkling Burgundy and Pelham Blue were still up earlier today, but are gone now. I guess that means they’re officially collectible! :rofl:

    I will never understand why Gibson hamstrings themselves like this

    Guess my original Sparkling Burgundy from late 2018 with the crappy PCB electronics is now officially worth more money! Thanks Gibson.

    I definitely like the trans finish better, but mark my words - if I know Gibson, they'll throw a million of these out at once and the QC for these is gonna be rough.

    I too have a Pelham blue SG. But I do like the classic Cherry color.

    Nothing has changed except the finish. The Pelham Blue and Sparkling Burgundy were never a limited production run.

    It'd be cool if they did the classic batwing instead of the half guard on these to set them off from the previous iteration.
