A Hybrid Hollowbody

Looking for a unique guitar that is part hollowbody and part solidbody? The Gibson Midtown Standard is the innovative and exciting hybrid you have been looking for. Gibson started with a solid mahogany body, which they chambered and then topped with a solid maple cap. You will love the feel of the new Midtown body shape, it is larger than an electric but smaller than the typical hollowbody. The '60s Slim-Taper neck shape gives you the comfortable playability you expect from a Gibson. A pair of '57 Classic humbuckers and a Bigsby vibrato finish off this unique axe.

Unique Body Construction and Size

The most unique aspect of the Gibson Midtown Standard is the innovative body. It is slightly larger than an electric guitar, yet smaller than the typical semi-hollowbody guitar. The body is made from solid mahogany and is strategically chambered for optimal sound and relieved weight. The Gibson Midtown Standard features a solid maple top with f-holes to give it a definitive semi-hollow look and feel.

'57 Classic Pickups

We all want a guitar with not only great tone, but flexible tone. The Gibson Midtown Standard has tone in bucketfuls. You get a '57 Classic in the neck featuring creamy, warm tones that you have come to know and love from vintage pickups, and the slightly hotter '57 Classic Plus for those a more driven and raunchy lead tone. Combined you get great funk and rhythm tones. The '57 Classic humbuckers make the Gibson Midtown Standard a formidable tone weapon.

Bigsby Vibrato

Finish off the Midtown Standard with a Bigsby vibrato and you get a total sonic tool that can tackle everything from jazz to rockabilly to punk and rock. A TonePros roller-saddle bridge helps keep you in tune when using the vibrato.
