New Gibson Collections Will Be Released In:
At GAK we were lucky enough to have a few feet on the ground at the Winter NAMM 2019 show and have been allowed exclusive pre-show access to the eagerly awaited Gibson Stand! With Gibson having a few issues earlier in 2018, we have all been waiting to see what the new CEO (JC Curleigh) can bring to the table; and by the looks of things, he is already turning the Gibson brand around and back to its successful roots!
Heres what we know so far!
“The Countdown Begins…”
Les Paul Standard 50’s Gold Top
The new 50’s Spec Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved — shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson’s Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life.
The Les Paul Standard 50’s has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a rounded 50’s-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. It’s equipped with an ABR-1 – the classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge – aluminum stop bar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons, and amber top hat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
