The only thing better than a six-string made by Gibson is a guitar from their custom line up. Re-designs of the classics, the guitars in this section are Gibson's cream of the crop, and their specifications and looks mirror the models they created back in the '50s, '60s and '70s. Gibson can make your dream of owning a vintage-inspired guitar a reality with their stellar line-up of custom guitars, and this catalogue has plenty to choose from.
So where is the best place to start your search? The choice is yours, but the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a winner in more ways than one. The '59 Burst is considered one of the most sought-after Gibson guitars; in fact, only 635 of them were shipped that year! The newer model mirrors every detail of its original counterpart with a few modern upgrades that were introduced in 2013 with Gibson's Custom 20th Anniversary Specifications. These new features include: a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color and much more. This guitar is a total sound and style package and would make a great addition to any guitarist's collection.
Another model to look at is the SG Standard Reissue. This guitar stays true to the specs of the 1963 originals with its solid mahogany body, dual cutaway, pointed horns and nickel-plated hardware. Embodying the tone, feel and look of the original, this guitar has been brought into the 21st century tremendously with the incorporation of Gibson's Custom 20th Anniversary Specifications.
There is nothing cooler than a custom guitar. Whether you're on the stage, in the studio or practicing in your basement, you'll feel like a rock star every time you pick up your Gibson custom guitar. These instruments represent the history, as well as the future, of electric guitars, so take some time to see which Gibson custom fits best with your playing style.
