A few days ago, we celebrated the launch of new Gibson guitars. So, there are seven brand-new models on the market, and there’s something for acoustic and electric guitar players alike. Moreover, we’re more than happy to welcome new addition to the growing family of Gibson guitars equipped with the famous Player Port.
Mentioned below are the profiles of these enticing new instruments. If you want to know more about their availability, please contact our Sales Representatives.
The G-Bird represents the glorious legacy of the Gibson Hummingbird™ colliding with modern sonic enhancement through the Gibson Player Port™. The Player Port is an original Gibson concept from the early 1960s that has since been refined by our acoustic luthier team to deliver revolutionary sonic improvement and add a new dimension to the G-Bird’s sound. The Gibson Player Port allows you to hear the guitar as you’ve never heard it before—the same way your audience hears it—maximizing its sonic impact for an immersive playing and listening experience
The G-Bird is part of the Generation™ Collection, and like all models in this collection, it’s made in Bozeman, MT, by the same highly skilled craftspeople who make all Gibson acoustics. It features a stunning solid Sitka spruce top and solid walnut back and sides for the ultimate in crisp, resonant tone. This square-shoulder dreadnought delivers all the rich low end and well-balanced mids and highs the original Hummingbird is famous for. The TUSQ® nut and saddle, along with chrome Grover® Mini Rotomatic® tuners, deliver solid tuning stability so you can spend more time playing instead of tuning. The utile neck, with its easy-playing Advanced Response neck profile, is so comfortable you won’t want to put it down. The G-Bird also comes equipped with an LR Baggs™ Element Bronze pickup system, so it will always sound as good to your audience as it does to you. A gig bag is included.
The unmistakable Gibson Hummingbird™ is followed by the masses as one of the most remarkable acoustic guitars ever built. The new Hummingbird Faded blends vintage appointments and today’s modern, high-quality build construction. The Hummingbird Faded is outfitted with gold Gotoh® Keystone tuners, a traditional Hummingbird truss rod cover, and a bone nut and saddle. The built-in LR Baggs VTC electronics make this guitar stage and studio-ready, right out of the included hardshell case.
The J-35 evolved from the Jumbo in 1936, a time when the Great Depression was still wreaking havoc on Americans. Gibson developed the J-35 to be a pared-down model that still offered musicians a warm and balanced instrument. The J-35 30s Faded delivers every bit of the seasoned, vintage look, feel, and sound of our iconic J-35, with a satin nitrocellulose finish that only adds to its rich legacy and undeniable vintage vibe. Discerning flattop players will love the rich, full-bodied tone from this vintage-inspired, round-shoulder beauty, along with its superb playability and simple aesthetic charm. Includes a hardshell case.
The J-45 is Gibson’s best-selling acoustic of all time. Nicknamed “The Workhorse” and first introduced in 1942, this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World-renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection, the J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights. The Gibson J-45 50s Faded delivers full-spectrum sound with incredible dynamic range; warm mids; and tight, punchy bass. Now available with a faded satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that accentuates the guitar’s vintage vibe, and equipped with a modern LR Baggs pickup and electronics package for studio and stage use. A hardshell case is also included.
