Have a Special Christmas: NEW Gibson Specials... and More

Published: Mon December 05, 2011  News Feed

Guitar giants Gibson have very recently unleashed their latest ranges of guitars, including favourites like the Les Paul and SG among some others like the Midtown Custom and Nighthawk Studio.

Would You Like to Hear the Christmas Specials?

“Better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual”

In amongst all of the new pretty Gibson additions are three individual and distinctive little gems, the latest Gibson Specials.

The Gibson Special guitars produce an incredible tone; made possible by Gibson’s use of “baked” maple and black Obeche fretboards which both look, sound and perform beautifully. These Brand new models feature carefully selected authentic tonewoods, are available in a variety of charming finishes and of course… all come with that (no need to mention) guaranteed Gibson quality.


It can be trusted that Gibson are dedicated to delivering great guitars, on the inside as well as out. The range features the incredible SG Special Limited with Dirty Finger Pickups, now doesn’t that name alone just make you want to try one out.

This Gibson SG Special was handcrafted and brought to life in its musical homeland of Nashville TN, absolute authenticity. The SG Special is a no-nonsense, no frills, simply made to perform, designed to be noticed, all round - I mean business instrument.

Besides the three show-stopping finishes, the most significant feature of the SG Special is the Gibson Dirty Finger humbucking pickup system. The system was a popular upgrade in the 80s and has pushed the SGs sound into a whole new extravagant territory. Producing high output, “gritty” tones with a seriously aggressive attack, the dirty fingers are back and even more bad-ass than before.

The Gibson SG Special Limited with Dirty Finger Pickups is available in Alpine White, Renault Blue, or Radiant Red (Red Rocker!)

Pre-order £799

The Respected Motif Chief

Popular with stars like Joan Jett and Carl Barat of The Libertines/ Dirty Pretty Things, the classic Gibson Melody Maker has returned, effortlessly classy. Featuring a set-neck and double pickups, this new model is finished in a thin satin nitro lacquer which improves the instruments resonance and sustain.

In addition to the sound improving finish, the Melody Makers are capable of producing an incredible tone, made possible by Gibson’s use of the hard, stable and sonically “live” baked maple fingerboard. This wood baking process gives the fingerboard a great “snappy” response, desired by many players.

The Gibson Melody Maker Special is available in a selection of sophisticated stain and satin finishes, Blue Stain, Satin Cherry, Satin Ebony and Satin Yellow.

Pre-order £549

Stunning, Yet Modest

Since its birth, the Les Paul guitar has been popular within multiple genres, from Blues to Rock & Roll. Former Guns and Roses guitarist, Slash, who performs the well-known lead riff of Sweet Child O’ Mine, is infamous for his classic sunburst Les Paul guitars.

The "Lester Special" features an Obeche fingerboard which produces a very similar tone to rosewood and is specially dyed to give it the dark appearance that simply screams traditional Les Paul. This Special also includes a 60’s slim mahogany neck, the highly desired chrome Tune-O-Matic® bridge and features a nitro lacquer finish, naturally, for pure Gibson Tone!

This Les Paul Special Limited is basic, straightforward and ready to rock hard. Featuring the two classic humbuckers 490R and 498R, Gibson haven’t cut any corners, the Les Paul Special is just a great rock guitar suited to anyone after a quality instrument with a very reasonable price tag.

The Gibson Les Paul Special Limited with Humbuckers is available in the wonderfully humble Pelham Blue and Ebony finishes, this model lets its sound do the talking.

Pre-order £799
