Product Description

Gibson's thinline semi-hollow ES models were an instant hit because of their marriage of archtop and solidbody electric designs. Now the Gibson Limited Edition Midtown Custom Electric Guitar takes all of the legendary ES properties a step further, maximizing each design goal, while adding a rich, deep resonance all its own. With a trimmed-down and body size that still emulates the lines of the ES, but built with the chambered solid-wood construction, the Gibson Midtown Custom truly embodies the optimum marriage of solidbody and archtop.

Gibson Limited Edition Midtown Custom Electric Guitar Features
  • Chambered Mahogany body with carved, bound Maple top
  • Mahogany neck with '60s SlimTaper neck profile
  • Baked Maple fingerboard with acrylic block inlays
  • Burstbucker 1 in the neck and Burstbucker 2 in the bridge
  • Grover kidney button tuners with 14:1 tuning ratio
Body
The Midtown Custom guitar from Gibson starts with premium tonewoods, using Grade-A timbers beneath the translucent finish options. A solid mahogany body is strategically chambered for optimum resonance and capped with a solid carved maple top with traditional f-holes, which is finished in a high-gloss finish.

Neck and Fingerboard
The Midtown Custom’s solid mahogany neck is carved to a fast, comfortable '60s-style profile that measures .800 inches at the 1st fret and .875 inches at the 12th. The neck is topped with a smooth, baked maple fingerboard for a great look to add to it's incredible feel.

Tidy white binding accentuates the fingerboard of the Gibson Midtown Custom, while multi-ply binding graces the body and headstock. The rich, dark fingerboard is enhanced with acrylic block inlays plus split-diamond inlays dress the headstock in the classic style of upmarket Gibson models.

Electronics
Plugged in, this elegant hotrod runs the gamut of legendary Les Paul-to-ES tones, thanks to a pair of BurstBucker pickups, two of Gibson's finest vintage-PAF-style humbuckers, and classic four-knob wiring with three-way toggle selector. A BurstBucker 1 in the neck position yields warm, throaty blues and jazz tones with plenty of clarity, while a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 in the bridge provides more growl and bite for anything from hot country to rock 'n' roll, while together the pair provides round, slinky, funky rhythm tones.

These great humbuckers from Gibson USA are made with genuine unpolished Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire, just like the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s. In the hardware department, the Gibson Midtown Custom carries the classic pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and a set of premium Grover kidney button tuners up top.
