The Music Radar reports taht the famous and influential guitar brend Gibson “giving players what they want” and that “under new management, Gibson might actually deliver what guitarists have been clamoring for: traditional-spec electrics and lower prices – for acoustics at least.”
Music Radar source wrote that:
“Info is scarce at the moment, but according to Chief Merchant Office Cesar Gueikian, confirmed new Classic models include ‘a Les Paul Standard ’50s spec and a Les Paul Standard ’60s spec as well as one with P90 pickups; a Les Paul Special in TV Yellow and Les Paul Junior Tobacco Burst; an SG Standard and two new 61 spec SGs with ‘maestro’ and ‘sideways’ Vibrolas.”
The source added that indications are clear that the company is promising to “return to its classic designs and construction methods,” and a new Generation line of acoustics has also been introduced.
Specifically, we’re looking at the USA-built G-45 Studio and G-45 Standard six-strings, priced at $999 and $1,299 respectively. Both models utilize solid Sitka spruce tops and walnut back and sides, plus “exquisite” finishes.
New additions also include a Les Paul Tribute Double Cut Junior with a single P-90 and a Les Paul Tribute Double Cut Special with dual P-90s – both at an “accessible” price point according to the company.
