The history of gibson

Having a nearly 120 year old heritage, the guitar and instrument manufacturer offers an amazing know-how of crafting extraordinary instruments. Gibson sells guitars under a variety of brand names and built one of the world's most iconic guitars, the Gibson Les Paul, which in 1952 and until today has revolutionized the guitar industry. From the earliest guitars until the more recent models, provided with incredible high-tech system Min-ETune, passing by the first adjustable Truss Rod System, the first Humbucker microphone and many other Gibson innovations, the American brand made history. Gibson has also defined the most beautiful Jazz, Blues, Rock and, today, Pop stories. To play a Gibson guitar means to turn back to these stories. The greatest artists ever like Jimmy Page, Lenny Kravitz, Slash, Joe Perry, Wes Montgomery , BB King, already have said: there is only Gibson to be able to fuse nostalgia with the opening of new horizons in terms of creativity and sonority.

Gibson news to discover on this year:

  • The Min-ETune is a tuning system, Gibson's latest self tuning guitar technology, with up to 18 alternate tunings. A small, compact and, in addition to this, affordable tuning unit.
  • The USA Series has been refined in order to fulfill the most different guitarist requirements, modern or vintage, concerning the sonorities or styles. The Les Paul Standard, USA Series’ flagship, offers 3 different top degrees and 4 different top styles for its Premium version. The latest Tribute Series offers a warm vintage sound; the SG61 carries us back to the roots, the Les Paul Traditional lives more than ever up to its name and the new SG Standard takes its firepower from a pair of 57 Classic and a slim profile neck.
  • The Custom Shop doesn’t just make guitars, it makes dreams. It fuses personal touches with history and innovation. Today’s players can purchase perfect reproductions of the guitars picked by the greats — sometimes, as is the case with a special run of 50 aged-finished models, right down to the dings and cigarette burns.
