Nashville, TN (December 4, 2009) -- Three weeks after posting an advance look on their website, Gibson has revealed full details on their latest technological endeavor: the Dusk Tiger. Here's what Gibson had to say about the instrument:
A killer guitar with a look and construction that has never been seen before. Dusk Tiger represents the state of the art in electric guitars, redefining what the guitar can do with the integration of pioneering technology with the most advanced design in the industry, all in a Limited Edition package with only 1,000 sold worldwide.For More Information:
Unparalleled Tonal Flexibility
With a tonal flexibility that is unmatched by any other, Dusk Tiger keeps 100 percent of the purity of tone realized through analog technology, and also expands on Dark Fire’s tones by offering ultra-low-noise, programmable on-board multiband EQ controlled by flexible editing software.
Optimized For Stage and Studio
Dusk Tiger is the perfect guitar both on stage and in the studio. The combination of magnetic and piezo pickups gives traditional and more “acoustic” guitar tones, while separate outputs for each string allow you to create sounds from classic to beyond futuristic. Add to that a multichannel FireWire interface and Ableton Live 8 and your possibilities are unlimited.
Exceptional Ease Of Use
All the tones and the 18 user-programmable alternate tunings (featuring third-generation Robot Tuning Technology) are easily accessible through a streamlined, stage-friendly interface, designed for ease of use and inspired by intensive focus groups with leading guitarists.
A History Of Continued Refinement
Technological advancements in design allow for lower current consumption, unprecedented reliability, and the use of common camera batteries that can be replaced in seconds – and offer much longer battery life. What's more, these refinements have led to reduced manufacturing costs, making Dusk Tiger the most affordable high-tech guitar yet.
Ultimately, Dusk Tiger is a beautiful, smoothly playable guitar. It recalls the time-honored Les Paul body lines, but presents them in a guitar with a flat top (coupled to a tone-chambered back) made from exotic hardwood covered with golden, amber, and dark chocolate hues, and accented by a unique new pickguard and control layout. Dusk Tiger is set up using advanced Plek technology to insure uniform feel and extreme playability.
The World's Most Advanced Guitar
Dusk Tiger reflects Gibson’s commitment to stretching the boundaries of the electric guitar, while honoring the elements that make classic guitars so desirable in the first place, bringing you simply the most astonishing innovation in the history of the guitar.
