Continuing the 120 year anniversary, Gibson Guitars have released three new models to add to their rocking tradition.
Gibson has always been about blending innovation and tradition, so there’s no better addition to the 120th Anniversary celebrations than this creative re-think of the radical Explorer. Combining time-tested tonewoods, versatile pickups, and the full measure of Gibson USA craftsmanship with one of the most revolutionary guitar designs ever to hit the scene, the Explorer 120 delivers show stopping looks, superb playability, and versatile tones to take you center stage in a surprisingly wide variety of musical styles.
Flying V 120
The Flying V is the original rebel-rousing rocker, way ahead of its time in the late ’50s and still a major style statement today. Following in the footsteps of this iconic guitar, the Limited Run Flying V 120 is the perfect candidate to join in Gibson USA’s 120th Anniversary celebrations. Combining time-tested tonewoods, versatile pickups, and unparalleled Gibson USA craftsmanship at an unbeatable price, the Flying V 120 launches your music into the stratosphere, while making the perfect ticket to the party for collector and player alike.
SG Standard 120
The SG Standard 120 nails the look, feel and sound of one of the most popular SGs ever made, with top-notch tonewoods, pickups, and hardware to deliver powerful, versatile SG performance. The foundation is set by a Grade-A mahogany body and neck, plus a one-piece Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with frets over binding and traditional trapezoid inlays. The holly headstock inlay is joined by a “120th Anniversary” banner at the 12th fret, while the mid-’60s style 5-ply pickguard holds two of Gibson’s most popular humbucking pickups: a 490R in the neck position, and a more powerful 498T in the bridge. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partner with vintage tuners to lock it all down in classic style, and the SG Standard 120 comes protected in an elegant brown hardshell case. Throw in the Heritage Cherry in hand-sprayed high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer and this a great way to celebrate 120 years of the world’s most influential guitars.
