Every new series in the Master Artisan Collection will feature instruments and accessories that are custom designed and built to be the pinnacle of craftsmanship, authentically Gibson Custom Shop, and extraordinarily rare. Gibson Custom Shop is proud to launch of the new Master Artisan Collection with the Leo Scala Super ‘58 Flying V’s, its first collaboration with Los Angeles based luthier Leo Scala, the founder of Scala Guitars and one of the world’s foremost guitar makers.

During his three decade career, Leo has established an enviable reputation for his unique creativity and impeccable craftsmanship, in addition to his passion for Gibson instruments. The ultra-rare and desirable Gibson Master Artisan Collection feat. All guitars come with a custom hard case with plush ruby interior and a Certificate of Authenticity with Leo’s signature. Though his guitars have the visual impact of sculpture, the looks are never the most important thing to Scala. “It’s always the sound,” he adds. “It can be extremely flashy, but if you pick it up and it doesn’t do its own thing, then you just missed the whole point. It’s not art that should be hanging on a wall; it’s a performing piece of art. That’s what this collection represents, and I feel honored to be asked to contribute to an iconic legacy.”
