Gibson Guitar Of The Month


Gibson USA is continuing its legacy by introducing new models every month with the exclusive Guitar of the Month, program. Each model is limited to 1,000 units worldwide and a new model launches on the first Friday of every month. April's Guitar of the Month, is the Les Paul 295 Gold Top guitar model.
April's Guitar of the Month, the Les Paul 295 Goldtop features the wider Florentine cutaway normally found on such legendary Gibson models as the Byrdland and the ES-175. The guitar also features hand-painted, cream colored pickguard with gold flowers and split parallelogram inlays along with a chrome Bigsby tailpiece. The body is solid mahogany with a maple top and single-ply binding,smoothed with Gibson's classic Goldtop finish. The headstock is also bound in single-ply cream binding and sports Gibson's traditional holly symbol. The neck is the standard Les Paul mahogany neck with a '50s rounded profile and rosewood fingerboard.
Gibson tell us that, in the neck position, their '57 Classic pickup delivers warm, full tone with a balanced response, packing that classic Gibson PAF humbucker crunch. The new Les Paul 295 comes with a custom Guitar of the Month, case and, say Gibson, is versatile enough for all styles of music and playing. Pricing and Availability:
MSRP is $4,399 and in limited quantity. More information:
