Gibson Guitar 2015 Models
Gibson Guitar 2015 ModelsGibson Guitars revealed today their new Gibson electric guitar models for 2015, available to order now from our online shop. These guitars range from luxury Les Paul models to some very cheap and affordable Gibsons, and include innovations such as the new G-Force Tuning System.
As expected, the highlights are the new Gibson Les Paul guitars, and many models feature modern features such as push/pull coil tap pickups and body rout for weight-relief. However, Gibson have not forgotten the players who love a more traditional feel and the new Les Paul Traditional models have no rout and 50s-style necks. There's indeed a guitar for everyone, in this new range!
Among the models, Gibson have announced one of their most luxurious models ever, the new Les Paul Supreme, but, at the same time, is also offering some fantastic guitars for under £800, such as the Les Paul LPM. These are very cheap, affordable guitars for Gibson standards, but do not disappoint in terms of quality and features. They are perfect, affordable Gibson Les Paul guitars for the everyday musician.
In the past few years Gibson have really been concerned with adding more versatility to their instruments, so it comes as no surprise that some models not only come with tap coil pickups, but also with an extra mini-toggle boost switch, replacing one of the four traditional knobs. One such model is the Les Paul Classic 2015.
