At Guitar Center, we understand that discerning musicians want absolute top quality and craftsmanship in their instruments. That's why they've created the Platinum Collection of electric guitars, allowing artists to shop for the supreme 'cream of the crop' from brands like Gibson, Fender, Gretsch, PRS and Rickenbacker in one handy catalog. Whether you're in the market for a signature model, a rare and hard-to-find axe, or the highest-end design from a particular vendor, you'll find it here in the platinum collection of electric guitars.
If you're like many of the world's guitarists, then maybe you consider Gibson to be at the top of the heap for guitar manufacturers. In that case, this section offers dozens of stunning axes, from custom Les Pauls to vintage recreations. The style of music you play should help you narrow down the search. Are you a heavy-metal rocker, looking for an axe to completely enthrall the crowd? Mastodon legend Bill Kelliher helped craft the "Halcyon" Les Paul Electric Guitar, a true beast of an instrument that's made from mahogany and features pulse-pounding Lace Dissonant aggressor pickups. Or how about the Gibson 2015 Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom, a recreation of the instrument played by the music maestro on his multiplatinum 1976 album? A custom slim neck profile and three Gibson humbuckers makes this mahogany axe a pure work of art.
Of course the platinum collection goes far beyond Gibson. Fender offers dozens of spectacular instruments from their world-renowned Custom Shop here. Have a peek at the Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar, a cornerstone of the Pink Floyd legend's unmistakable sound. This beast features custom pickups, along with Gilmour's electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm. Or, if you're a British invasion devotee, you can't go wrong with a Rickenbacker by your side, like the vintage-inspired 360 Electric Guitar, a deluxe hollowbody with dual truss rods and single-coil pickups.
These are just a few examples of the hundreds of sensational platinum electric guitars in this section. A combination of unsurpassed quality mixed with spectacular looks and killer tone puts these axes in a class all their own. Go ahead and treat yourself to one of these showstoppers and see for yourself why we consider these axes to be truly "platinum".
