Product Description

The Gibson Midtown Standard P90 Electric Guitar gives you the best of Gibson’s solidbody and archtop guitars while adding the vintage vibe and bite of dual single coil P-90 soapbar pickups! The trimmed-down, more player-friendly body size emulates the lines of Gibson's classic archtops, but is built with the Midtown line's advanced chambered, solid-wood construction (rather than laminated top and back) to truly embody the optimum marriage of solidbody and archtop.

The super fat and rich sounding P-90 pickups give the Midtown Standard P90 incredible versatility that can handle raw vintage rock, blues, funk, contemporary jazz, Americana, and beyond! A hand-sprayed, high-gloss nitrocellulose finish allows the body to resonate to the fullest for great sustain.

Gibson Midtown Standard P90 Electric Guitar Features

  • Chambered Mahogany body with solid Maple top and f-holes
  • Mahogany neck with fast, comfortable '60s-style profile
  • Rosewood fingerboard with traditional acrylic trapezoid inlays
  • Pair of P-90 Soapbar pickups in the neck and bridge
  • Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
  • Premium Grover Keystone tuners with 14:1 tuning ratio
Tonewoods
The Midtown Standard P-90 from Gibson USA starts with premium tonewoods, using Grade-A timbers beneath the transparent finishes (Grade-C for Pelham Blue). A solid mahogany body is strategically chambered for optimum resonance and capped with a solid maple top with traditional f-holes. Its solid mahogany neck is carved to a fast, comfortable '60s-style profile that measures .800 inch at the 1st fret and .875 inch at the 12th.

The genuine rosewood fingerboard carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and is inlaid with traditional acrylic trapezoids that link the Gibson Midtown Standard P90 to one of its predecessors, the Les Paul Standard, while cream binding enhances both fingerboard and body top. To best show off its great woods and luscious finishes, the Midtown Standard P90 is built without a pickguard.

Electronics
Plugged in, the Midtown Standard P90 guitar reveals its true glory via a pair of Gibson's legendary P-90 pickups. These beloved pickups have a fatter, richer tone than thinner single-coils, and provide everything from thick grit and snarl for rock 'n' roll, to rich, creamy warmth for jazz, to singing blues tones with great snappy and funky tones in between. Each pickup is made to the same specs as the vintage examples that made the P-90 famous, including coils wound from 42-AWG wire with two Alnico V magnets loaded beneath each pickup.

To keep it all simple, Gibson USA routes these pickups through the traditional 3-way toggle switch and master volume and tone controls with classic gold Speed Knobs. For optimum resonance and sustain, the Midtown Standard P-90s carries the classic pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece with a PLEK-cut Corian nut up top, partnered with a set of premium Grover Keystone tuners.

Each Gibson Midtown Standard P90 comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case with black exterior and includes owner's manual and adjustment literature along with Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.
