Pickups and electronics
Gibson loads the Midtown Signature with a deep, powerful T-Bird Plus pickup in the neck position and a smaller, punchier vintage-style T-Bird mini pickup in the bridge for tonalities from sweet to savage. They’re routed through a three-way selector switch, complemented by master volume and tone controls.
A three-point adjustable bridge provides a rock-solid anchor at the body end for optimum resonance and sustain, while classic Grover shamrock tuners offer easy and efficient tuning. Black speed knobs and a black bridge-pickup mounting ring complete the package.
