Product Description

What if you married the best attributes of Gibson's archtops together with their innovative solid-body designs? You’d get a Gibson Midtown Standard Electric Guitar. With a trimmed-down and more player friendly body size that still emulates the best of Gibson tradition, built with solid-wood construction rather than a laminated top and back, the Midtown Standard with Bigsby truly embodies the optimum marriage of solidbody and archtop.

Gibson Midtown Standard Electric Guitar Features

  • Mahogany body and Maple top with f-holes
  • Fast, comfortable ’60s-style neck profile
  • Features a pair of powerful ‘57 Classic humbucking pickups
  • Bigsby vibrato tailpiece with Schaller roller-saddle bridge
  • Chrome Keystone tuners with 14:1 tuning ratio

Body and Neck

The Midtown Standard with Bigsby from Gibson USA starts with a solid mahogany body that is strategically chambered for optimum resonance. A solid maple top with f-holes is glued to this foundation, finished in your choice of high-gloss finish. A solid mahogany neck is carved to a fast, comfortable '60s-style profile and capped with a bound fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets. Tidy white binding accentuates the body and fingerboard of the Midtown Standard, while eye-catching mirror dot inlays adorn the fingerboard.

Pickups
Plugged in, the Midtown Standard is an understated hotrod which runs the gamut of classic Gibson tones, thanks to a pair of ‘57 Classic humbucking pickups and a no-nonsense control array of a single master volume and tone, along with Gibson's traditional three-way toggle switch. A ‘57 Classic in the neck position offers tones that are creamy and warm yet always articulate, while a slightly hotter ‘57 Classic Plus in the bridge yields raunchier crunch and scorching lead tones, with round, funky tones available from the both-pickups selection.

These great humbuckers from Gibson USA are made with genuine Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire, just like the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s, and offer a blend of depth and clarity that few pickups can match today.

Hardware
A Bigsby vibrato tailpiece extends the Gibson Midtown Standard's playing range even further, with the aid of a Schaller roller-saddle bridge, designed to put keep you in tune even with heavy whammy action. Put it all together, and it's a great modern take on some of the world's most classic electric guitar designs.
