Gibson Custom

Description

From the graceful Venetian cutaway to pearl and abalone inlays on an inky ebony fretboard, this awesome archtop is truly a sight to behold. Features a gold-plated, individually fingered jazz tailpiece and a fully adjustable saddle with a pearl-inlaid ebony bridge base. The BJB floating pickup with gold cover is mounted to the pickguard rather than the neck for a smooth, mellow tone without feedback. The sleek, lightweight peghead design results in a remarkably well-balanced instrument. These appointments, coupled with unbelievably lush and sophisticated tone, make this among the finest production carved tops available.
