Gibson Custom Modern Double Cut

Big release from Gibson as they introduce the Modern Double Cut in Gibson Custom line.

MDCSPSL11099_MAIN_HERO_01

The new shape has mixed elements  and it’ll safe to say it may please players who are familiar with double cut guitars from other brands.

MDCSPSL11101_ELECTRONICS_GLAM

While the DNA of this model is definitely Gibson with the 24.75 inch scale, set neck, tilt-back headstock, Tun-o-matic/Stoptail bridge and dual humbuckers, we can’t help but feel that the offset horns, belly cut and simpler electronics are F****** and P## brand elements.

There are six finishes available and the gold top is just pure beauty. Retail is US$3999 at time of blog entry, so save some moolah if you want one.

Interesting promotion for the Dean Zelinsky Tagliare. You get to choose from either the ones with Z-Glide or not. At $399, it seems like quite a good markdown from the retail prices.

Not normally a fan of relic-ed guitars, Guitarbear was knocked off the chair when these appeared. That Kerry Green one (below) is just spectacular.

CSLPSTDPSL11075_MAIN_HERO_01

Comes with an equally spectacular price of US$5999. How much does a bear kidney cost these days? 🙂
