Gibson Custom has long been known as builders of some of the most sought after electric guitars in the world. Gibson Custom is world-renown for their painstaking re-creations of prized vintage instruments. Their guitars are every bit as good as an original because they virtually are an original. From their Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, Gibson's skilled Luthiers hand-build these collector-quality instruments using top-of-the-line construction and finishing techniques, often the exact same as the highly collectible vintage instruments that inspired them. The Custom Shop is also responsible for all of Gibson's artist signature models, working closely with the artists to nail every aspect of the instrument. That's why players as high-profile as Zakk Wylde, Joe Bonamassa, Pete Townshend, and many more have counted on their Gibson Custom guitars for years.
Hand-assembled in Nashville, Tennessee, there is nothing mass-produced about a Gibson Custom guitar.
Gibson invented the humbucking pickup. So when you find a vintage-spec Burstbucker in your Gibson Custom guitar, you know you're getting the most authentic tone possible.
From the thick maple tops and rich mahogany bodies to the rosewood and ebony fretboards, each Gibson Custom electric guitar is made of only top-quality tonewoods.
To maintain authenticity, reissue-style Gibson Custom guitars feature special hardware that performs to today's standards with the genuine look and feel of a broken-in, vintage instrument.
Gibson has long championed the use of nitrocellulose for their finishes. Whether a 3-dimensional burst or a worn vintage finish, the nitro brings out the guitar's visual and tonal beauty.
Every Gibson Custom guitar comes with a few extras, including a Gibson cloth, vintage guitar cable; truss rod tool, Tune-O-Matic, and humbucker pickup adjustment guides; and four authentic product tags.
