I went to Guitar Center the other day (great way to start a story, I know) and got a chance to play some of the new 2019 Gibson’s. The handful I played (SG Junior, Les Paul Special, SG Standard) were all nice, nicer than I expected honestly, but I still wouldn’t pay full price for a single one cuz...I can’t afford that shit!

My favorite of the bunch honestly was the Flying V Tribute (or B-2? I don’t know), which felt fantastic. I was clicking around on Gibson’s site yesterday, and found...two slightly different versions of it? I don’t know what the deal is:

https://www.gibson.com/Guitar/USA9VN393 ... V-B-2-2019

https://www.gibson.com/Guitar/USA15M813/Flying-V-B-2#

Both same price, both still for sale, the only difference that I can identify is the placement of the headstock logo. I think the second one with the pearl logo looks kind of goofy, almost like a bad photoshop. I guess that one also comes with a case. I found both of these for sale on guitar center’s site as well, both for the same price. What’s going on here?

Just different model years is my guess.
Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.
