For Those About to Rock! 3 Gibson Electrics You Need to Check Out
CATEGORY: Product News
It has been an exciting your over at Gibson, and their revised line of electric guitars are just hitting our shelves. Under the leadership of new CEO James Curleigh, Gibson has refined their electric guitar line and after a long hiatus, we have started to carry Gibson electric guitars in the store again.
With the refined line, and new excitement surrounding Gibson electrics, we wanted to spotlight three electrics in different price points, that are ready to rock.
I guess there is no better place to start than the top. The Gibson Custom 1957 Reissue VOS Goldtop electric is the pinnacle of Gibson Electric guitars. If you have some extra money in the bank and want a Les Paul that will be an heirloom for the rest of your life, your kids' lives and the lives of your grandkids, this is the guitar for you.
The iconic '57 Goldtop has been the tool of choice for countless guitar heroes. Its elegant gold finish, classic solid mahogany/maple construction, and versatile humbucking pickups represent everything one could possibly need in a Les Paul model. This authentic recreation exemplifies Gibson Custom Shop's tireless quest for accuracy to the original year of production, from the woods to the construction to the parts and precise contours throughout. Each Custom Shop Reissue is every bit the instrument and statement piece as the priceless vintage examples, providing an ownership experience that is endlessly fun.
All the fun of a Les Paul at a new lower price! Believe it or not, Gibson actually lowered the price of many Les Paul's this year and the Studio is one of the models that received the price adjustment. With a street price under $1500, the Les Paul Studio embodies the essential Les Paul features with enhancements for playability and tonal versatility. The rosewood fingerboard and slim taper mahogany neck provide effortless playability and comfort. The 490R and 498T pickups provide tight, high-output humbucking performance and the two push-pull pots offer additional coil-tapping options.
And finally, we take a look at the SG Standard. A list of rock guitars would not be complete without this iconic guitar that first hit the scene in the early 60's, the SG is a rock 'n' roll powerhouse. The Gibson SG Standard rocks the classic looks and features associated with the late 60's style SG models sought after by many. A rounded profile mahogany neck, bound rosewood fingerboard, long tenon 19th fret neck joint, and a solid mahogany body provide the backbone for singing sustain. The 490R and 490T Alnico II pickups provide the power to drive. A black, 5-ply, full-face pickguard set this SG Standard apart from others... a truly versatile classic.
If you need a guitar that rocks, Gibson has a number of awesome guitars that are ready to feed your need. From the more historic reissues to modern takes on classics, the new line of Gibson guitars has a guitar from almost every taste and budget.
