Gibson Announces Midtown Custom

Gibson USA''s Midtown Custom takes their ES properties a step further, maximizing each design goal, while adding a rich, deep resonance all its own.

Nashville, TN (November 18, 2011) -- Gibson USA has announced the new Midtown Custom, designed to take all of the legendary Gibson ES properties a step further, maximizing each design goal, while adding a rich, deep resonance all its own. With a trimmed-down and more player-friendly body size that still emulates the lines of the ES models, but built with the chambered solid-wood construction (rather than a laminated top and back with solid center block), the Midtown Custom is designed to embody, "the optimum marriage of solidbody and archtop."

Features:

  • Chambered Mahogany body with carved, bound Maple top
  • Mahogany neck with '60s SlimTaper neck profile
  • Black Richlite fingerboard with acrylic block inlays
  • Burstbucker 1 in the neck and Burstbucker 2 in the bridge
  • Grover kidney button tuners with 14:1 tuning ratio
  • Vintage Sunburst, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Ebony, or Antique Natural finishes
  • MSRP $2299
