If you know guitars, you know Gibson. They've been around for more than a century, but their biggest claims to fame arrived with the electric guitar revolution in the 1950s and '60s - when they introduced the legendary Les Paul, and then a revised version which became the Gibson SG after the original was re-introduced. And while those two designs are definitely the highlights of the Gibson catalog, they've got plenty of other electric guitars and basses to choose from in the 2017 lineup. Here you'll find the latest revisions of Gibson's most iconic instruments, so if you've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to make a Gibson guitar or bass your own, this could be it.
Any instrument with a "T" tagged onto its name, like the 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard T or the 2017 Gibson SG Special T, is a traditional model, which means it comes with vintage-authentic tonewoods and usually traditional pickups in one or both positions. These are the axes to look at if you want to go back to the early years of Gibson electrics. For those who want things more modern, there are revised versions of the Les Paul and SG - or you could try out one of Gibson's more contemporary models, such as the 2017 Gibson Firebird T, the 2017 Gibson Explorer T or the 2017 Gibson Flying V T.
There's sure to be something in Gibson's 2017 series to fit your niche, whether you're a pro guitarist interested in a Custom Special Les Paul or SG, a down-to-earth artist pining after the Firebird Studio, or if you're a bassist, make sure to get a load of the 2017 Gibson EB Bass T. It's safe to say Gibson has a solid roster of instruments on their hands this year, which doesn't really come as a surprise considering their status as one of the top-rated and most-respected luthiers in the business. We might even go as far as to call it their best selection yet, but don't take our word for it... have a look and see for yourself.
