Boy howdy! We have the new 2015 Gibsons in stock! Gibson’s done a lot of new things for 2015 — let’s take a look at some of the new features!
Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut
This innovative nut design increases sustain, promotes accurate intonation, and improves action by offering a wide, range of nut adjustments. Slide guitarists can raise and lower action easily.
Wider Neck and Fingerboard
This is the one of the first things we noticed when we picked up the 2015 Gibsons — a pleasantly wider neck/fingerboard with increased playing area, but the same string spacing. This design allows for increased playing comfort for hammer-ons, pull-offs, and bends — yet the same string spacing retains a familiar, consistent feel. Add to that thicker Rosewood fretboards for higher mass, and you got truly massive sustain with these Gibsons!
Comprehensive Construction & Setup
Another great feature for 2015 Gibson’s is in the manufacturing process itself. They have new methods for wood selection, matching the finest and rarest woods to every guitar based on the quality of the match, consistency of the figure, intensity of the figure, clarity, and wave. The new guitars also have lower frets, providing a silky smooth feel, accurate intonation, and very easy bending.
New Tuning System
Gibson’s new G-Force tuners extend the innovations introduced in Min-eTune with new firmware that greatly improves ease of use. Combined with increased speed and accuracy, G-Force provides the best and simplest user experience yet in an automatic tuning system.
New and Improved Hardshell Case
The new and improved hardshell case for 2015 upgrades the look and strength. Made to withstand an up to 15-foot drop (up to four times more resistant to drops than other cases), the tough, ergonomic, molded exterior and cushioned interior provide maximum protection as well as insulation from temperature and humidity extremes.
Alright, now that we know what’s new and happening this year with Gibson, it’s time to take a look at the guitars!
Les Paul Special Double Cut
It’s back! We’re excited to see this very cool, vintage-vibe guitar available again, and just love how it plays! They’ve simplified the controls down to one volume, one tone, and the three-way switch — thank you!
Les Paul Deluxe
The acclaimed favorite with modern updates! The 2015 Deluxe features better-balanced, mini humbucker pickups, plus hot–rod wiring for coil splitting and onboard boost! This killer combination, along with the new neck and other design improvements, update this ’70s icon for the 21st Century.
Les Paul Junior Single Cut
The classic simplicity of the Les Paul Junior with one powerful P-90 — this guitar has one powerful attack, I tell ya! This is the best deal around for a Gibson USA — pick one up and play!
The new SG Standard is one sweet playing guitar! The compound radius fingerboard and 57 Classic pickups paired with push/pull split coils make for tons of great tones and playing ease!
The new SG Special comes with… 24 frets! Wow! Imagine that? On top of that, we have two 61 Zebra pickups for some real powerful shredding!
Les Paul Classic
Truly a classic, this is Gibson’s most affordable full-size Les Paul. Featuring a very nice maple top, cream binding, 57 Classic rhythm pickup and a Super 57 lead with split coiling — boy what a nice guitar!
