Gibson have had absolutely massive week, announcing two new model lines, with additions to the Ultima range of guitars, and a new selection of Custom Shop Les Paul Specials.
Gibson have revealed two new ranges of Limited Edition guitars in their Custom Shop and Ultima series.
The first new addition to the Gibson family is a line of limited edition custom shop Les Paul Specials, finished in a range of beautiful 60s-inspired colours and – as a first for Gibson – matching necks and headstocks.
This limited run is avaliable in a variety of bright finishes like Cardinal Red, Pelham Blue, Frost Blue, Inverness Green and Kerry Green, on top of the usual Les Paul Special features, such as a mahogany body and a set of P90s (see above).
The second new addition to the Gibson line is two new guitars in their Ultima rage: a new limited run Les Paul, and for the first time, an ES-335. The Ultima makeover includes pearl/abalone inlays with tree of life patterns and stunning gold hardware.
The Ultima Les Paul is available in two different finishes, Heritage Cherry Sunburst or Cobra, with the ES-335 sporting a metallic Inverness Green finish.
