Take It From The Top

The True Historic Series from Gibson features replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 1950's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes. They are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range. This detailed recreation is true to every aspect of the original's stylish looks, legendary tone and distinct "fretless wonder" playability. It is also one of the most aesthetically beautiful guitars ever made!
