    Show some love for the wonderful White binding match of the 2017/18 units !!

    My 2018 Gibson Standard '61 Somethang !! ' haha in Ebony.
    She has the greatest White (binding) on White trim ( and nut !!)

    I think this is a striking combo for an already awesome guitar :)

    I know that other models use the White as well. not sure of years :)

    Give a cheer fer White !!

    I am not that fussy about white binding variations, to me a white binding is white, pale or dark.

    If you ask me to paint something white, then it's a different matter. Like in this painting I made. Ask anybody and they'll refer to it as white horses on a white background, but I don't think there's any pure white in there.

    Just picked this one up today. It's not as bright in person, but for the first time in years other than 2017-18, they used a binding plastic that did not have the pink tint.

    I can’t imagine being fussy at all about slight differences in binding color, that factor wouldn’t even be on my radar with a guitar purchase.

    Variations in binding color does not bother me, but I find that pink binding they have been using for years to be very distracting.

    My "Exclusive Run 2019 SG Standard" in Pelham Blue has white binding. Spec-wise it is exactly the same as the 2018 Standard. I guess Gibson just used up the parts left over from the previous year to make this run. It would not bother me if the binding was more cream but I think the white looks especially awesome in combination with pelham blue.
