Gibson Craftsmanship – Tradition of Excellence
Gibson's reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the late 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you're getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail - these instruments are built to sound great and stand the test of time. After moving from Kalamazoo, MI, to Nashville, TN (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, MT, where they continue making some of the finest guitars on the planet by hand.
Gibson puts a few new twists on a classic! For over 100 years the luthiers of Gibson have been creating some of the best, most sought after acoustic guitars the world has ever seen. Because of their early vision and commitment to quality, very little has changed in the way we build our acoustic guitars. With the introduction of the Modern Classic Series, however, the luthiers at Gibson Montana have incorporated a few modern conventions, into our classic line. All Modern Classic models feature premium solid tonewoods, a thinner, faster neck profile with comfortable radiused fingerboard edge, bone nuts, TUSQ compensated saddles, Grover Rotomatic tuners, rosewood components, and a premium pickup system. All these elements add up to an instrument that sounds great out of the box, and will only improve over time. The Gibson Acoustic True Vintage series are not only great investments, but reliable companions that will continue to inspire you for years to come.
Gibson: Over 100 years of a good thing
Gibson guitars have been around for well over a century. When guitarists are looking for an outstanding combination of superb tone and playability along with great looks and gorgeous finishes, the choice for most of those 100 plus years has been Gibson. From their amazing collection of fine acoustics to the electric guitars that literally rewrote music history, Gibson guitars have been on almost every chart-topping album from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream and Led Zeppelin. These "first call" instruments also cross an enormous array of diverse styles, from folk and country to blues and hard rock. With that resume, it's not surprising that so many of Gibson's best-selling instruments have changed little over the decades. Because there's just no sense in messing with a good thing!
