A hugely successful 2019 NAMM show has cemented the fact that Gibson are back in a very big way and here to stay! Taking feedback from players, consumers and retailers they have gone back to their roots and redesigned the range from the ground up to offer you the very best of Gibson. The brand new Gibson Modern Collection is exactly that, no nonsense, no frills, just pure Gibson tone and playability with fantastic build quality.

- Case Soft Shell Case
First of all, when I opened up the box and pulled the guitar out, the soft shell case that comes with the guitar was black. That was a nice surprise as I was not keen on the brown colour. The case itself is of amazing quality and gives the guitar real protection. Other manufactures should be embarrassed and ashamed that when they do decide to include a gig bag it is nothing more than a dust cover with a little bit of padding and uncomfortable shoulder straps and doesn't really offer the guitar any real protection. With this gig bag, Gibson is saying we are proud of the guitar you have just purchased and look after it, and here is something to help you do that. As for the guitar, the only bad thing I can say about it is that it has the dots instead of the block inlays on the fretboard. Gibson set up all their guitars incredibly well, and this guitar was no exception. It really is a joy to play and it sounds amazing. If you are considering buying one of these then just do it, you will not be disappointed.
