Gibson introduces the Longhorn Double Cutaway in Trans Blue finish, the brand's Guitar of the Month limited edition model for July 2008.


The Longhorn is Gibson’s newest body design, consisting of slightly extended, asymmetrical cutaways on a solid piece of mahogany topped with a AA figured maple top. It also features white three-ply binding around the body and a traditional headstock for both aesthetical and protection purpose.

A special-design L.R. Baggs piezo pickup has been added underneath the Tune-o-matic bridge to deliver an acoustic sound simulation, while a pair of EMG 85 active humbuckers are here to deliver electric tone, power, and versatility. A new two-jack input from L.R. Baggs offers separate outputs for both the piezo and the humbuckers. This gives players the option of either blending the two sounds or playing them individually, thus allowing guitarists all types of sonic possibilities.

The neck is one-piece mahogany with Gibson’s traditional ’60s slim-taper profile, topped by an ebony fingerboard with white acrylic small-block fretboard inlays created especially for the Longhorn. Also in keeping with tradition is the headstock’s Flowerpot inlay, which dates back to the early 1900s and several of Gibson’s historic mandolins and archtops.

The new Gibson USA Longhorn is available only in a Trans Blue finish. Production is limited to just 1,000 instruments.
MSRP is $3439.00.
