Gibson USA is proud to introduce the 2008 Guitar of the Month Program. Featuring such models as the SG Diablo, the Les Paul 295, and the Shred-X Explorer, Guitar of the Month draws on Gibson’s incredible history and the constantly evolving needs of today’s players by launching a new model on the first Friday of each month.
The standard by which all electric guitars are judged. With fat, rich tone and incredible sustain, the Les Paul lends itself to every style and generation of music. From the sweetest jazz to the heaviest rock and metal, the Les Paul can do it all. It is one of the most powerful and versatile instruments of all time.
Gibson's radical redesign of the Les Paul in 1960 created a classic that has stood the test of time for nearly 50 years: The Gibson SG, short for solid guitar. With a lightweight mahogany body and sharp double cutaways, the SG is as bold and powerful today as it was nearly 50 years ago.
Since the electric guitar debuted, the most radical designs ever seen have come from Gibson. From the eye-popping Flying V and Explorer, to the sleek and ultra-cool Firebird, to the innovative guitars of tomorrow, the Designer series guitars represent Gibson's commitment to staying one step ahead.
With a thundering low-end tempered by sweet mids and warm highs, Gibson basses offer a smooth and even tonal spectrum and distinctive, legendary designs.
