    Gibson Midtown Custom (Heritage Cherry Sunburst)

    My third Gibson ( J200, J50 adjustable), First Gibson Electric.
    I was very impressed by this guitar, overall quality of workmanship, fit, finish, action, intonation, and sound and general playability are awesome! Couldn't have mad a better choice, especially for the price point!
    Thanks again to Ryan Sloan at Sweetwater

    I was really hoping this would be a good guitar but I had reservations. I was not sure that I would like that its top is flat and not carved and I was very concerned about how I would feel about the synthetic neck. I have been blown away with how smooth the next feels and plays and the flat top does not bother me at all. I would much rather have a excellent feeling and playing synthetic neck than a cheap rosewood neck. The Burstbucker pickups are excellent, I have put them in some of my other guitars and they never disappoint (Gibson also puts them in some of their extremely high dollar guitars). Overall an excellent guitar sold by an excellent company.

    Awesome Playing Guitar

    I was at Sweetwater for a Songwriters Camp event and saw this in the retail store. I plugged it into a Fender Deluxe Reverb and was immediately blown away with how well it played and how comfortable the neck was. I tried out several other guitars but each time I found myself going back to the Midtown Custom. Easy playing with excellent build quality. A week after I bought it, I bought and added a stetsbar tremelo. It now looks unique and the whammy adds a new dimension.

    It's a Gibson.....

    Sounds really great, and I love the custom looks for the price. Burstbuckers are some of my favorite pickups. Here's the negative stuff. Dust in the binding. Poorly cut nut. The nut is easy enough to fix, but considering that Gibson plecked this thing, and the frets and action are near perfect, why leave the nut alone?? My low E and G string literally just sit on top of the nut! The dust in the binding is the worst though. I am a little ADD about stuff like that, and I found several pieces all throughout the guitar. You can scrape them out, but you have to dig into the binding a bit. I played a few at local music stores after I got this thing, and they all had the same issues. Just something to be careful of before you spend your dough. It really is a great feeling and playing guitar, and I don't regreat my purchase, but c'mon Gibson...turn on the vacuum in the finishing room.

    Great playing & sounding guitar

    A brother-in-law of mine got one of these and I was amazed at how it played. So, I got one for myself. Pickups are great, wonderful sustain and clarity. I've played two shows with it and is my new favorite.
