Just did a search for Gibson 2017 on amazon.com. Lots of nice models come up. If what I see is real, 2017 is looking to be a great year. The small pickguard is back on the SG Standard T, among other things.

So...there's sumthin about the name, Firebird "Zero" that makes me wonder if that's the best marketing.

Hmmm....

I prefer this Firebird, (though not the price).

Seems like they've given the HP models more bling - personally I don't like the chrome trc & 'beauty rings' around the pups, I think it looks cheap. SG Standards are going back to '57 pups & angel wings. Soon it'll be batwings in even years & angel wings in odd years. :)
