A Hybrid Semi-hollow Guitar

The Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 semi-hollowbody electric guitar is the innovative and exciting hybrid you've been looking for. Gibson started with a solid mahogany body, which they chambered and then topped with a solid maple cap. You'll love the feel of the new Midtown body shape. Larger than your typical solidbody but smaller than a hollowbody, the Midtown feels just right cradled in your arms. And the '60s Slim-Taper neck gives you the comfortable playability you expect from a Gibson. A pair of P-90 soapbar single-coil pickups and a gorgeous nitro finish top off the Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 semi-hollowbody electric guitar.

Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Unique body design gives this guitar character
  • SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
  • Vintage nitrocellulose finish lets this guitar sing clearly
Unique body design gives this guitar character

The most unique aspect of the Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 is the innovative body. It is slightly larger than your everyday solidbody electric guitar, yet smaller than a typical semi-hollowbody. The body is made from solid mahogany and is strategically chambered for optimal sound and relieved weight. The Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 features a solid maple top with f-holes to give it a definitive semi-hollow look and feel.

SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability

The Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '60s SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers moved down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the Midtown's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many life-long guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.

Vintage nitrocellulose finish lets this guitar sing clearly

The Gibson Midtown Standard P-90 wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s and '70s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.
