New Gibson USA Models
Fans of Gibson USA have the chance to find one of the first models to be produced out of the famous guitar plant in Nashville since the recovery from the May 2010 Nashville floods.
The Gibson Les Paul Standard, Les Paul Traditional and SG Standard return in full glory, the company promises.
The Gibson Les Paul Studio in Alpine White has "a unique look, Les Paul performance and the Studio's tradition of affordability" according to the manufacturer. MSRP $1,799.
If you are a player who loves the fat, sweet, snarling tone of a Les Paul, Gibson USA offers the Gibson Les Paul Traditional. Taking design and visual cues from the Les Pauls of the ’80s and ’90s, the Les Paul Traditional starts with a mahogany body and adds nine traditional weight-relief holes for a beefy tone that maintains the resonance of modern Les Pauls, while losing a large portion of the weight. This is capped with a AA figured maple top, giving the Les Paul Traditional the look of the great Les Pauls that helped to bring rock back to the front of the stage in the mid ’80s. MSRP $3,449.
Originally conceived as a modern replacement for the single-cutaway Les Paul Standard, the Gibson USA SG Standard had several features that made it perfect for cutting-edge guitarists – all of which remain present in the Gibson USA SG Standard. It features a solid-mahogany body and neck, a double-cutaway design, a Tune-o-matic bridge and stoptail pairing, and two humbucking pickups. MSRP $1,799
