    Product Description

    Establishing a new standard in archtop excellence, crafted with a Solid Formed spruce top, Venetian cutaway, floating pickup, and full-sized hollowbody tone and looks. The debut guitar in Gibson Custom's new Solid Formed Archtop Series, the 17" Hollowbody Venetian is born from a marriage of Gibson's 120-year legacy as the inventor of the archtop guitar and its ongoing reputation for innovation.

    This full-sized archtop is inch for inch the descendant of the legendary Gibson archtops of the 1930s, '40s and '50s, yet it surpasses even that lofty standard by employing a proprietary new Solid Formed spruce top and maple back, in which the grain of the wood is redirected into the arched shape, rather than severed as in traditional carving. The result is an elegant hollowbody archtop made from solid tonewoods, yet with a richer and more pronounced tone that lives and breathes like nothing you've ever experienced.

    Enhanced by a new stronger neck design that uses less wood, and with its resonance unimpeded by a ‘floating’ pickguard-mounted mini-humbucker, it's a bold new leap in archtop evolution.

    The best tone from Gibson
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar arrived yesterday, iced tea burst. Been looking at this model for a while, and now own the best Gibson I have ever played. The tone is remarkable, like playing in Carnegie hall - 3- 4 notes follow arpeggio in the body, enough to make one cry! If you are a musician, this will be the best purchase of a lifetime. Yes I do feel that way.
