Gibson SG Zoot Suit Electric Guitar Black and Red

Gibson SG Zoot Suit Electric Guitar Black and Red

The word zoot is jazz slang meaning extravagant style—certainly an apt description for the Gibson USA SG Zoot Suit electric guitar. The radical design starts with a body built with multiple birch wood laminate pieces (each one approximately .075" thick), each dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. No paint is used. Each body is given two coats of satin nitrocellulose lacquer. The average weight of a Zoot Suit body is 5.7 lb., which is slightly heavier than normal but actually creates more balance, a solid feel, and brighter tones that prove compatible with the pickup configuration.Maximum sustain The Gibson SG guitar's solid body yields maximum sustain and enhanced resonance. Gibson's traditional rounded profile is hand-carved into the neck, delivering a comfortable, super-fast feel to one of the quickest necks in the industry. The headstock is carefully angled at 17 degrees, which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay in the nut slots. An increase in string pressure also means there is no loss of string vibration between the nut and the tuners, which equals better sustain.Ceramic humbuckers The Zoot SG is loaded with Gibson's eminent 496R Hot Ceramic and 500T Super Ceramic humbucking pickups, which feature clear coil forms and mounting rings to display the copper wire and ceramic magnets. The magnets in both the 496R and 500T pickups are Ceramic Five magnets manufactured at just the right temperature to ensure high intrinsic coercive force. The 496R produces incredible sustain and cutting power, adding more highs with increased definition and no muddiness at all. The 500T is one of Gibson's most powerful pickups, and contains a three ceramic magnet structure, which enables a no-holds-barred rock and roll crunch that never loses its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal clear highs.Each Gibson SG Zoot Suit Electric Guitar comes with a deluxe gig bag that features the classic Gibson logo silkscreened on the front, and plush lining on the inside to protect the guitar.


Gibson Custom ES-339 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with '59 Rounded Profile Neck Antique Red

Gibson Custom ES-339 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with '59 Rounded Profile Neck Antique Red

It goes where no guitar has gone before with a bold, new semi-hollow tone that is rich with expressive, even stinging, overtones. The ES-339 has some exciting enhancements including Memphis Tone electronics, outer rim output jack, and reduced dimensions and weight.Memphis Tone electronics Memphis Tone circuitry utilizes 500K audio taper pots that operate with an interactive load that preserves high end as you turn down the volume.

No more cable crossing the body, spoiling the guitar's clean looks and and getting in your way.Reduced dimensions and weight The ES-339 builds on the success of the semi-hollowbody guitars first introduced by Gibson in 1958 with the ES-335. Lighter and more compact than a traditional semi-hollow guitar, the ES-339 retains the distinct semi-hollowbody electric tone that powered so many hit records and landmark performances. Two '57 Classic Humbuckers with 3-way pickup selection plus individual volume and tone controls provide the incredibly versatile sounds that make the semi-hollow electric famous for its use in jazz, rock, blues, country, and nearly every other style you can think of. Quality Kluson tuners keep retuning time to a minimum, and nickel hardware enhances the great looks.This version of the ES-339 comes with the rounded '59 neck profile for guitarists who prefer a chunkier neck, but still enjoy fast, smooth playing action.

Gibson Custom Birdseye Exotic Woods ES-335 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Natural

Gibson Custom Birdseye Exotic Woods ES-335 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Natural

For 50 years the Gibson ES-335 has been a favorite of guitarists, with surprising versatility and solid, full-throaty, hum-free and feedback-free performance. Like all of it's predecessors, this reissue offers a detailed response, buttery playing feel and, most of all, superlative sound that ranges from fat, warm, and vocal on the neck pickup to stinging and cutting on the bridge pickup, with a broad range of brews in between. While all the ES-335s are great looking guitars, this one surpasses itself with a gorgeous Birdseye Maple top. From the moment you plug it in, the '57 Classic humbuckers will remind you of the tones you've know and loved in more hits than you can count.In 1958 Gibson introduced no fewer than four new electric guitars that were so fresh, so radical, and so forward-looking that not only would it be years before they were fully appreciated by more adventurous players, but seen today amidst all that the industry has to offer they are still influential and inspiring, even downright revolutionary by any standards.With its arched top and f-holes, the ES-335 bore recognizable links to its lineage, but a quick check inside its double-cutaway thinline body with solid center block revealed it as a brave new design. More subtle in its advancement of the template, it was in many ways no less revolutionary, and also more acceptable to players who were hesitant to strut too far ahead of the pack. The new ES-335 had the advantage of possessing some of the familiar ES features, and in particular was only a few steps away from thinline hollowbody models like the Byrdland and ES-350T of 1955, but that chunk of maple that ran down its middle to render it a semi-acoustic made a world of difference to its performance. The solid wood meant the ES-335 could carry a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, all of which worked together to produce a quick response, great note definition, and the kind of sustain that couldn't be had from any fully hollow archtop on the market, thinline or full bodied. To top it all off, plugging up the center of that body achieved impressive resistance to feedback, a major pest to archtop players of the day. Taken up quickly by adventurous jazz and country players who recognized its advantages, the ES-335 rapidly proved itself equally at home in the hands of blues, pop, and rock players too. One of the most versatile electric guitars ever produced, it has been a Gibson mainstay ever since.Over the course of 50 years this guitar has set standards for amplified semi-hollow guitar music on the planet, and adventurous players are using them to explore new horizons even today. 1958. Remember it as a time of revolution.THE CUSTOM SHOP DIFFERENCE Passion. It burns in the heart of every player who purchases a Gibson Custom Shop guitar... and it burns in the heart of every employee who helps build these world-class instruments. Gibson vows to continue infusing every instrument that passes through their doors


Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1958 Korina Explorer Electric Guitar ¹

Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1958 Korina Explorer Electric Guitar ¹

Fifty years ago, Gibson debuted a new series of guitars — referred to in the 1958 catalog as the Modernistic series. Designed by Ted McCarty, they were far enough ahead of their time that the originals languished until a later generation of players enthusiastically adopted them. Fewer than 50 original Explorer guitars were shipped during 1958, making them among the most collectible guitars ever. This special 50th Anniversary 1958 Korina Explorer Electric Guitar, featuring a one-piece korina body and neck is limited to a run of 100 guitars.A solid korina body and stopbar bridge are the primary elements of tone and sustain for this awesome axe, which you can wield handily thanks to the Gibson Explorer Guitar's player-friendly setup. A 19th fret neck joint means you can shred all the way to the highest notes on a rosewood fretboard. A tune-o-matic bridge and mini Grover tuners keep your strings spot on in tune even when you're bending the night away. All this sound is superbly telegraphed to your amp by two ceramic magnet humbuckers.

Gibson L-200 Emmylou Harris Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar Antique Natural

Gibson L-200 Emmylou Harris Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar Antique Natural

Legendary singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris's love of Gibson Jumbo acoustics is well documented. From her duets with country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons and his 1960s J-200—which she still owns—to her custom-painted pink J-200 which she used exclusively on her 1985 album The Ballad Of Sally Rose, Harris' career has been closely associated with Gibson. The L-200 Emmylou Harris acoustic guitar carries on that tradition with a model that captures the big sound and classy look of the Gibson SJ-200, but in a smaller package designed to meet the performance and travel demands of any artist. First introduced in 2002, the L-200—the inspiration for Gibson's CJ-165 line—features a body design that is smaller and thinner than the SJ-200, but braced to produce the powerfully balanced, natural sound so closely associated with it.Gold Gotoh Pearloid Keystone Button Tuners Gibson's Emmylou Harris acoustic-electric guitar features Gotoh's pearloid keystone button tuners. With a gear ratio of 15:1, these Gotoh tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage, with a special lubricant inside the gear box for smooth and accurate tuning stability.Crown Peghead Logo Gibson put the first crown peghead logo on an ES-300 back in 1940, and it has graced the headstocks of many legendary Gibson guitars ever since, including today's L-200 Emmylou Harris Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Over the years, it has also been called a "thistle" because of the group of flowering plants with the sharp prickles, though Gibson has preferred to call it a "crown."Pickguard The tortoise pickguard for the L-200 Emmylou Harris is Gibson's standard jumbo-style shape, with a beautiful cream floral and vine design and 10 mother of pearl dots. As with all of Gibson Acoustic's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.Rosette A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the soundhole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The rosette on the L-200 Emmylou Harris is a double-ring rosette, with the main ring consisting of seven-ply binding, and the second ring three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the L-200.Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Graduated Crown Inlays The fingerboard of the Emmylou Harris L-200 Guitar is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The Gibson L-200's graduated crown inlays are made o

Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Electric Guitar Heritage Cherry Sunburst

Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Electric Guitar Heritage Cherry Sunburst

Gibson SG Special Satin Ebony Electric Guitar Satin Ebony

Gibson SG Special Satin Ebony Electric Guitar Satin Ebony

Hands down, the Gibson SG Special Satin Ebony electric guitar is the best combination of features and value in Gibson's iconic SG line-up. You still get the dynamic, slim mahogany body and hair-trigger quick neck that have made the SG a workhorse guitar, yet without all the non-essentials. The ultra-affordable price tag on this electric guitar is owed to fewer coats of finish than can be found on the traditional SG Standard and SG Special. This stripped-down finishing process means that not only will you enjoy more resonance, but you'll be the proud owner of an SG that looks straight out of the '60s. The Gibson SG Special is uncivilized. It's fierce. And it's got to hang in your guitar rack.Solid Mahogany Body Probably the most central of all the SG Special's features is its solid mahogany body—lightweight, strong, with a thick, warm tone. The mahogany goes through the same rigorous selection process as all of Gibson's woods, and is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled wood experts before it enters the Gibson factories. Inside the Gibson factories, humidity is maintained at 45 percent, and the temperature at 70 degrees. This ensures all woods are dried to a level of equilibrium, where the moisture content does not change during the manufacturing process. This guarantees tight-fitting joints and no expansion, in addition to reducing the weight. It also helps with improving the woods' machinability and finishing properties. Consistent moisture content means that a Gibson guitar will respond evenly to temperature and humidity changes long after it leaves the factory.'50s Rounded Neck Profile No guitar neck profiles are more distinguishable than the neck profiles employed on the Gibson models of today. The guitar's more traditional '50s neck profile on the SG Special is the thicker, rounder profile, emulating the neck shapes found on the iconic 1958 and 1959 Les Paul Standards. The neck is machined in Gibson's rough mill using wood shapers to make the initial cuts. But once the fingerboard gets glued on, the rest—including the final sanding—is done by hand. That means there are no two necks with the exact same dimensions. So while the Gibson SG Special guitar still has the basic characteristics of its respective profile, each neck will be slightly different, with a distinct but traditional feel.Dot Inlays Over the years, the classic dot inlay has been one of the more traditional features of many Gibson guitars, including the SG. A figured, swirl acrylic gives these inlays that distinguished pearl look. They are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require the use of fillers.Gibson's 490 (R) Rhythm and (T) Treble Pickup The mid to late 1960s saw the emergence of a very different type of music coming from the clubs of England. It was an interpretation of the blues that hadn't been heard before, an


Gibson Les Paul Studio Silverburst Electric Guitar Silverburst Chrome Hardware

Gibson Les Paul Studio Silverburst Electric Guitar Silverburst Chrome Hardware

The Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar has become one of the most desired Les Paul guitars for its tremendous harmonic and sonic capacities. The studio guitar is coveted by musicians from all genres of music and offers Les Paul performance with a modern, no-frills attitude. This Silverburst edition is lighter weight and offers a distinct look and modern features. The Les Paul Studio guitar marries a lightweight chambered mahogany back to a maple top. The mahogany set neck has a 22-fret fingerboard that is constructed from high-grade ebony. The resilience of this dense and durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The flatter 12" fingerboard radius promotes smooth note bending and eliminates dead or choked out notes—a common occurrence on rounder, smaller radius fingerboards. The Les Paul Studio guitar's '60s neck profile is slim tapered emulating the neck shapes of the 1960 Les Paul Standard.The Les Paul Studio Guitar shares the same quality electronics as some of its more expensive siblings. The Gibson 490R pickup has the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, but with a slight increase in upper mid-range response. The Gibson 498T bridge pickup is the 490 pickup's ideal complement. Taking the 490 one step further, the 498 swaps the Alnico II magnet with an Alnico V, thus making it a slightly hotter pickup with emphasis on mid-ranges and highs. The pole pieces on the 498T are also aligned a little further apart to accommodate the spacing of the strings at the bridge. Both pickups can be split via push/pull volume controls.


Gibson Custom Custom Robby Krieger 1967 SG VOS Electric Guitar Aged Dark Heritage Cherry

Gibson Custom Custom Robby Krieger 1967 SG VOS Electric Guitar Aged Dark Heritage Cherry

The Robby Krieger 1967 SG VOS (Vintage Original Specs) Electric Guitar from Gibson Custom blends several features from some of Krieger's favorite SG's into one stunning new model. Made of traditional solid mahogany, the body of the Krieger SG is typical of the thin SG bodies from the mid 1960s, complete with traditional beveled edges and the distinct dual sharp cutaway horns that give players complete access to the guitar's full 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. The body is then finished in Krieger's personal favorite Aged Dark Heritage Cherry finish, which is very similar to the finish of his beloved 1967 SG Standard, and historically accurate right down to the tiniest scratches, dings and belt rash. The neck is also a typical SG one-piece mahogany neck, but with a hybrid neck profile modeled after the neck on a 1961 Gibson SG owned by a close friend and the neck on his personal '67 SG Standard.In order to duplicate his signature sound Krieger chose a pair of Gibson's renowned '57 Classic humbucker pickups. Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" humbuckers of the mid- to late-1950s &mdash: some of the most sought after pickups in the world &mdash: were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with slightly different output and tone, and desirable to players who wanted to mix and match and explore a complete spectrum of tonal possibilities. The '57 Classic pickups are the result of Gibson's drive to capture and recreate this renowned characteristic. Krieger's signature sound comes through clearly in a warm, full tone with a balanced response, packing all the tremendous "PAF" humbucker crunch expected from a Gibson humbucker. Everything else on the new Inspired By Krieger SG is classic Gibson SG Standard, including the ABR-1 Bridge and Maestro tailpiece tremolo system, nickel hardware, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with figured acrylic trapezoid inlays, and vintage tulip tuners. The new Inspired By Robby Krieger SG Standard is destined to become of the most popular SGs ever produced by Gibson Custom, Gibson VOS guitars receive a nitrocellulose lacquer finish like many other Gibson Custom Shop and Gibson USA guitars, but the process on the VOS models has been revised to reflect the way Gibson finished these guitars back in the day. They receive a thinner lacquer finish, which is applied, sanded, and buffed differently— which is to say, more accurately. This not only gives the instruments a look more like a gently aged and well-cared-for vintage guitar, but helps the guitars "breathe," and therefore to resonate more freely.The Robby Krieger 1967 SG VOS will only be produced in a very limited run of 100 with Gibson Custom's V.O.S. finish treatment. Each guitar will come with its own Gibson Custom case and a certificate of authenticity signed personally by Krieger.

Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar Antique Natural

Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar Antique Natural

Over the years, it has also been called a "thistle" because of its resemblance to that prickly plant, though Gibson has preferred to call it a "crown."Pickguard The pickguard on the Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Standard is a custom line design made from Tortec.

Gibson Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar

Gibson Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar

A true legend of acoustic instruments, the Gibson Hummingbird Pro acoustic-electric guitar was first introduced in 1960 as Gibson's earliest square-shoulder dreadnought guitar. Superb for all styles of playing, with a capacity for rich, first-position folk chords and intricate solo playing, the Gibson Hummingbird quickly became an iconic acoustic line, and a favorite among legends like Gram Parsons and Keith Richards. The Hummingbird has been one of Gibson Acoustic's most enduring guitar line.Body tonewoods (back, sides and top) The body design of the Gibson Hummingbird Pro acoustic electric guitar is known as a square shoulder dreadnought. The top is made from Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from mahogany, giving the Hummingbird True Vintage a perfectly balanced midrange tone, with unbiased rich lows and clear treble registers. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to dry it out, are two of the most central procedures to Gibson's guitar-building process.Rosewood fingerboard with traditional binding and split parallelogram inlays The resilience of rosewood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The Gibson Hummingbird Pro guitar's split parallelogram inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports traditional binding over the fret ends, which was a staple feature of many classic Gibson acoustic guitars for many years.Bracing Every acoustic electric guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, handmade guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic guitar is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the guitar's sound projection. Gibson Acoustic's Hummingbird Pro guitar sports a single "X" bracing pattern similar to the design inside vintage Gibson J-30s. This traditional pattern delivers a balanced midrange tone, with unbiased lows and rich, clear highs, producing a warm tone that has been a favorite among artists and players alike since the original Gibson Hummingbird guitars introduced in 1960.L.R. Baggs Element ES acoustic pickup system Gibson Acoustic's Hummingbird Pro comes equipped with the Element ES Active acoustic pickup system from L.R. Baggs, which features a low-profile undersaddle element—or transducer—that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp with an unobtrusive and volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element ES delivers performance not previously attainable from an undersaddle pickup. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar, and improve

The rosewood Gibson SJ-200 Custom Acoustic-Electric guitar delivers the look, feel, and sound of Gibson's original Super Jumbo as it first appeared in 1937.

The SJ-200 Custom expresses deep, well-balanced tone and powerful sound.Gibson Logo The Gibson name has graced the most innovative and revolutionary acoustic guitars of our time—the Super Jumbos, the J-45, the Hummingbird, the Dove.

Over the years, it has also been called a "thistle" because of the group of flowering plants with the sharp prickles, though Gibson has preferred to call it a "crown."Rosewood Fingerboard with Traditional Binding and Graduated Crown Inlays The fingerboard of Gibson's SJ-200 Custom is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories.

The fingerboard also sports traditional binding over the fret ends, which was a staple feature of many classic Gibson acoustics for many years.Tapered Dovetail Neck Joint The dovetail neck joint is one of the oldest—and best—ways of securely joining the neck to the body of a guitar. It is also a complex and expensive neck joint to build, but the result is a tight, locking connection that supports the neck at the proper neck-pitch angle, allowing the body and neck to become one solid piece of resonating wood, with no metal to impede vibration. This process is done entirely by hand, requiring patience and skill.Body Tonewoods (back, sides and top) The top of the SJ-200 Custom is made from beautiful AAA-grade Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from Indian rosewood, giving the SJ-200 all the deep, well-balanced tone and powerful sound of Gibson's celebrated Super Jumbos.

Gibson Custom Custom ES-330L Electric Guitar Beale St. Blue

Gibson Custom Custom ES-330L Electric Guitar Beale St. Blue

The Gibson Custom ES-330L is a hollowbody electric guitar with stunning acoustic character that provides performers and songwriters with a very inspiring musical tool. The artisans at the Gibson Custom Shop have created an ES-330 guitar that is not a reissue, yet it has all the highly-desirable attributes of the original 1959 ES-330, such as period-correct 17° angled headstock, and black plastic pickup covers. Added to those are superior enhancements including premium tulip button tuners and a vintage period-correct 1-11/16" nut made from Corian that provides superior strength, durability, and musical sustain.Introduced in 1959, the Gibson ES-330 was a revolution in the field of hollowbody electric guitars with its unique laminate top and back, top bracing, neck block, and tenon. The ES-330L has the same great pairing of features—dog-ear P90 pickups and hollowbody construction—as the Epiphone Casino guitars used by The Beatles to provide punch on recordings such as "Taxman" and "Paperback Writer," and most of the electric guitar tracks on Sgt. Pepper. Full hollowbody The Gibson ES-330L incorporates the finest features including single-ply binding on the neck, small pearloid block inlays, long tenon neck joint, and nickel hardware. The ES-330L body is truly hollow and has no center block, making it a lightweight, comfortable, and uniquely resonant guitar. Without a maple center block the ES-330L is free to vibrate acoustically and the weight reduction is substantial. The Gibson ES-330L guitar features the preferred one-piece mahogany neck for supreme resonance that has inspired both players and songwriters.P-90 tone ES hollowbody signature tone is maintained, regardless of volume control setting, through the special control wiring scheme known today as the Memphis Tone Circuit. It allows a wide array of tonal variations from what many consider to be the best pickup ever designed—the P-90. The ES-330L guitar features P-90 pickups in both the bridge and neck positions with independent volume and tone controls for each pickup. A 3-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose either pickup independently or both pickups combined. Musical feedback More acoustic in nature than most electric guitars, the ES-330L provides a balanced voice with more power than other hollowbody guitars. The sum and difference of the top and back (not to mention rims) create a vibratory explosion of acoustical energy with an awesome midrange that exhibits a sweet spot at every fret. This results in its ability to produce musical feedback. The ES-330L starts feeding back at a lower volume threshold and delivers a wider dynamic range of musical feedback. Controlled feedback is musical and adds to the player's creative arsenal. With the ES-330L guitar, players need only pivot their stance a bit to get in the zone. Infinite sustain is yours at just the turn of your torso with overtones, undertones, howls, and shrieks at your b

Another difference is that the volume is very smooth, rolling off in even increments along with the numbers on the knobs. Since they operate more like how we hear (logarithmically), the guitar's controls work the way the player thinks they should. So when the guitarist turns down the volume the highs are still there.30/60 Neck Developed in assistance from guitar guru Jon Schwartz, the 30/60 slender neck is a '60s style neck with an extra .030" front-to-back to preserve the semi-hollowbody tone, sustain, and feel while providing smooth playability.Reduced dimensions and weight The Gibson Custom ES-339 builds on the success of the semi-hollowbody guitars first introduced by Gibson in 1958 with the ES-335.
