The Longhorn double-cutaway guitar in Heritage Cherry Sunburst is a soon-to-be-classic and is one of Gibson USA's Guitar of the Month for 2008. The Gibson guitar features a unique body design, consisting of slightly extended, asymmetrical cutaways on a solid piece of mahogany, topped by an AA figured maple top. White three-ply binding around the body and traditional headstock adds both beauty and protection to this model.
And the innovation doesn't stop there. A special-design L.R. Baggs piezo pickup has been added underneath the Tune-O-Matic bridge to deliver outstanding acoustic simulation capabilities. A pair of EMG's legendary 85 active humbuckers deliver extraordinary tone, power, and performance at all levels, while a new two-jack input, also from L.R. Baggs, offers separate outputs for both the piezo and humbuckers. This gives players the option of blending the two distinct sounds, or playing them individually, thus enabling guitarists to dial in all types of sonic possibilities.
The neck is one-piece mahogany with Gibson's '60s slim taper profile, topped by an ebony fingerboard with white acrylic small-block fretboard inlays created especially for the Longhorn. Also in keeping with tradition is the headstock's flowerpot inlay, which dates back to the early 1900s and several of Gibson's historic mandolins and archtops. The Gibson USA Longhorn Double-cutaway is yet another notable addition to Gibson's current collection of special edition guitars and production is limited to just 1,000 instruments.
