Gibson USA 2019

Les Paul Standard '50's

Now available for only $2500 for the first time in history, the Gibson USA Les Paul Standard '50's pays homage to the origin of the instrument and the man himself with a power-packed, vintage-inspired tribute featuring a non-weight relieved mahogany body and carved maple top, mahogany neck with rounded ‘50s profile, rosewood fingerboard with acrylic traps, traditional hardware set, and ripping Burst Bucker 1 and Burst Bucker 2 humbucking pickups loaded with Alnico II magnets and wired with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

Les Paul Standard '60's

Gibson remembers the decade that made the Les Paul famous with the USA Les Paul Standard 60s, a vintage-style, period-inspired tribute featuring a non-weight relieved mahogany body and AA figured maple top, mahogany neck with ‘60s-style Slim Taper profile, rosewood fingerboard with acrylic traps, traditional hardware set, and Alnico II-magnet Burst Bucker 61R and Burst Bucker 61T humbucking pickups wired with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

Les Paul Standard '50's P90

The Gibson USA Les Paul Standard 50s P90 pays homage to the origin of the instrument and the man himself with a vintage-inspired tribute featuring a non-weight relieved mahogany body and carved maple top, mahogany neck with rounded ‘50s profile, rosewood fingerboard with acrylic traps, traditional hardware set, and genuine Alnico V-magnet P90 single coil pickups wired with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

Les Paul Classic

The time-tested Gibson classic, viewed by many as the perfect electric guitar. Iconic. Inimitable. From its commercial debut in 1952, the Les Paul has been the instrument of choice for many of music's most renowned luminaries, and to the eye has remained virtually unchanged for over 60 years. The Gibson USA Les Paul Classic includes just a few updates to the traditional feature set, like 61R and 61T Zebra humbucking pickups and push-pull control assembly, but otherwise this beauty is pure LP down to the bound Slim Taper neck with solid rosewood fingerboard and nine-hole weight-relieved mahogany body with bound maple top.

Les Paul Modern

Gibson outfits the Les Paul Modern to meet the demands of the contemporary player without sacrificing classic Les Paul style or sound. The mahogany body features ultra-modern weight relief and a maple cap for a traditional look with enhanced comfort. The mahogany neck is carved to an asymmetrical Slim Taper profile and features a contoured neck heel to compliment the ebony fingerboard’s compound radius, providing better access to the highest frets. Burst Bucker Pro + and Burst Bucker Pro humbucking pickups are wired with four push-pull pots to offer both humbucking and single-coil sounds at the push of a button, and the premium hardware set promises excellent sustain and reliable tuning thanks in part to Grover Rotomatic locking tuners.

Explorer

The aptly named Explorer is as modern today as it ever was. The Gibson USA Explorer preserves the progressive yet understated style of original with the unmistakable, Explorer-cut solid mahogany body and an Antique Natural finish reminiscent of the original Korina, as well as a solid mahogany set neck with Slim Taper profile, one-piece rosewood fingerboard, classic hardware set with chrome finish, and Burst Bucker 2 and Burst Bucker 3 humbucking pickups for more burst than your average ‘bucker.

Flying V

The Flying V represented a new and futuristic direction for Gibson, but despite the excitement it was an abject failure upon its release. Initially produced only from 1958 to 1959, Gibson viewed the Flying V as a bomb. Today, it is one of the most iconic and successful guitars of all time with original models selling for upwards of $250,000. The Gibson USA Flying V puts that history right in your hands, featuring a solid mahogany body with Antique Natural finish, solid mahogany set neck with Slim Taper profile, classic hardware set with chrome finish, and Burst Bucker 2 and Burst Bucker 3 humbucking pickups.

Firebird

In the '60's, Gibson struggled to respond to Fender’s wild success with solid-body guitars, but the Firebird changed everything. Gibson’s first foray into neck-through construction and “reverse” body styles, the Firebird represented a major stylistic shift, picking up where the failed Flying V, Futura, and Explorer left off, blazing forth fearlessly into new design realms. The USA model features Tobacco Burst and Cherry finishes, classic neck-through-body design with mahogany wings, 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck with Slim Taper profile, one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners, dual mini-humbucking pickups, chrome hardware set, and all the game-changing style as when the ‘Bird first spread its wings in ’63.

Flying V B-2

The Flying V represented a new and futuristic direction for Gibson upon its debut in 1958. The Gibson USA Flying V B-2 represents yet another new direction for the revered brand, taking the V into full stealth mode with a blacked-out motif featuring a solid mahogany body with Satin Ebony finish, solid mahogany set neck with Slim Taper profile, classic hardware set with black chrome finish, black satin pickguard, and Dirty Fingers + Rhythm and Lead humbucking pickups to round out this rock-ready bomber.

Explorer B-2

The aptly named Explorer is as modern today as it ever was. The Gibson USA Explorer B-2 pushes it even further into the future with a blacked-out motif featuring a solid mahogany body with a stealthy Satin Ebony finish, solid mahogany set neck with Slim Taper profile, classic hardware set with black chrome finish, black satin pickguard, and Dirty Fingers + Rhythm and Lead humbucking pickups ready to drop tone bombs.

Les Paul Junior Tribute DC Bass

The Les Paul Junior Tribute DC Bass keeps the spirit of the legendary late-’50s EB-0 bass alive, enhancing the original design with contemporary features that meet the needs of the modern, short-scale player like an upgraded hardware set and a single extended range LP BassBucker humbucking pickup wired with push-pull coil tapping for expanded tone control.

Thunderbird Bass

You can’t have lightning without thunder, and the Gibson USA Thunderbird Bass brings all you can handle. Featuring a 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck and classic neck-through-body design with mahogany wings, the Thunderbird Bass offers huge sound thanks in part to the chrome hardware set with three-point adjustable bridge and booming Rhythm and Lead T-Bird pickups. Available in Tobacco Burst and Ebony finishes.

SG Standard Bass

Known for its double cutaway, the SG is the best-selling Gibson of all time, digging its horns deep into a wide variety of musicians since evolving out of the famed Les Paul in 1961. It continues to be a near-ubiquitous fixture of blues, rock, and popular music to this day, and now more so than ever with the Gibson USA Standard Bass. Available in Ebony and Heritage Cherry finishes, the SG Standard Bass features a solid mahogany body and neck with rounded profile, one-piece rosewood fingerboard, 30.5” scale length, Rhythm and Lead SG Bass pickups, and three-point adjustable bridge all for low end so low it’s downright devilish.

Les Paul Special Tribute DC

Gibson initially offered the Les Paul Junior as a student model version of the legendary solid body, but it’s no-nonsense design and affordability made it a beloved classic for players of all skill levels. The ever-popular model is still a core component of the Gibson line, and it’s as affordable as ever in the Gibson USA Les Paul Special Tribute DC without skimping on the premium tone woods, vintage double-cut body shape, and signature features like the Slim Taper neck profile, solid rosewood fingerboard, compensated wraparound bridge and dual reverse-wound P-90 single coil pickups with reverse polarity for reliable hum-cancelling.

Les Paul Special

A straight-forward flat top Les Paul designed to punch well above its weight, the Gibson Les Paul Special packs some serious muscle on top of classic Les Paul styling and components. The slab mahogany body sports an authentic TV Yellow finish–one of Gibson’s most renowned. The mahogany neck is carved to a ‘50-style rounded profile and has a thinly bound one-piece rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The classic nickel-finish hardware set with wraparound bridge offers modern durability and legendary sustain, and the dual P90s offer that fat, signature bark we all know and love.

Les Paul Junior

The Gibson Les Paul Junior represents a return to form for the player’s favorite, featuring a rounded-profile mahogany neck, single-cut slab mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, and a single P90 pickup with classic control set. Fat neck, fat body, fat tone–just the way a Junior should be.

Les Paul Junior Tribute DC

The ever-popular model is still a core component of the Gibson line, and it’s as affordable as ever in the Gibson USA Les Paul Junior Tribute DC without skimping on the premium tone woods, vintage double-cut body shape, and signature features like the Slim Taper neck profile, solid rosewood fingerboard, compensated wraparound bridge and trademark single P-90 single coil pickup routed under the pickguard and wired with a side jack.

CME Exclusive Gibson USA T-Type SG

Our CME exclusive Standards feature custom colorways never before seen on an SG, or any Gibson for that matter. Mixed specially for us, these colors are the result of a tireless back-and-forth to perfect the unique palette of awesomeness we now present to you. To complement these unusual finishes we’ve added small block inlays and a special tortoiseshell pickguard, also unique to our CME exclusives. But what’s most impressive about our custom run of SG Standards is not the pickguard, or the finish. In fact, it sits right on top of it.

CME is proud to offer the first-ever replication of the T-Top humbucker, a legendary and underappreciated component of many SGs produced from 1968 through 1980, billed here as the “T-Type.”

T-Tops are known for their consistency, clarity, and note definition, offering brilliant chime without sacrificing low-end. Our exclusive T-Type pickups feature Alnico 5 magnets, a low-to-moderate 7.45k ohm DC resistance, polyurethane insulated wire, and chrome covers, built to clean up beautifully with a turn of the volume knob for incredible dynamic range and purity of tone at all decibels.
