"Limited Edition" Gibson Models!
Here is a little run down on some special Gibson models that we managed to get our hands on. If you like what you see this could be your last chance to take one home!
Here at GigGear whether it's electrics, acoustics or basses, we always try and get hold of those instruments that are just that little bit more special or exclusive. When the words Gibson and Limited Edition come together you always know its something to get excitied about. Here is our little list of hand picked models that we are currently stocking and being quite rare beasts....they won't be around for long!
First up is the Limited Edition Non-Reverse Gibson Firebird in stunning Pelham Blue! This rare bird was originally only designed and produced for the Japanese guitar market, with only a small numbers actually making it to the UK. This non-reverse bodied model accurately pays tribute to the 1960's original models played by the likes of Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, Sonic Youth and Oasis. Key features include a distinctive off-set body, Gibson "SlimTaper" neck, Gibson mini-humbucking pickups, a revamped Gibson Tune-O-Matic Bridge with stoptail and rock solid Grover mini tuners.
Now this next guitar is one of the most menacing yet appealing Les Pauls we have ever seen! This Gibson Limited Edition Proprietary Les Paul Voodoo 2016 is a real head turner with its swamp ash body, satin JuJu finish and its black and red double slug zebra humbucking pickups. This guitar isn't just an oddball though. With a fast playing 12" radius richlite fingerboard combined with a reliable zamak tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, this guitar will sustain and sing just like a Les Paul should.
This one is certainly a Les Paul for you traditionalists out there. Our Gibson Limited Edition Proprietary Les Paul 50's Standard 2016 in Satin Faded Honeyburst is certainly the type of guitar we take great pride in displaying on our Gibson wall. The vintage vibe of the rounded 50s mahogany neck and sound of the Zebra 57 Classic humbuckers remain true to the original Les Paul, but are joined by the benefits of a modern weight relieved mahogany body to enhance resonance and reduce weight. The classy style touches such as the bound rosewood fingerboard, pearl trapezoid inlays and the bound carved maple top make this guitar look and feel truly special.
The final member of our Limited Edition club is this impressive Gibson Limited Edition Proprietary Les Paul Custom Lite 2016 in Classic White. The carved maple top and mahogany body have been expertly weight relieved with the overall body size thinned down to deliver a more comfortable experience and a less bulky, lighter feel. The classic, full-fat Les Paul experience is still well and truly achieved thanks to a superb rounded 50s profile neck, bound rosewood fingerboard set off with block inlays, gold tune-o-matic bridge, gold Grover keystone tuners and of course the powerful 490R and 498T humbucking pickups.
