Description

Details

The Midtown Standard 2015 in Vintage Sunburst or Pelham Blue illustrates Gibson’s enduring expertise in producing tremendous electric guitars time after time. From the A-grade tonewood used to build the luxurious body to the new and enhanced electronic attributes onboard, Gibson Memphis have produced a true hybrid that any guitarist is sure to fall in love with as soon as the first note is hit.

BODY AND TONEWOOD

The Midtown Standard fuses together the bodies of a typical archtop and solidbody guitar to produce an astonishing semi-hollowbody hybrid electric. Built to the first-rate standard that we always get from Gibson, the solid mahogany body has a reduced weight due to the chambering technique used on the tonewood which not only feels comfortable but offers a semi-hollow tone with a solidbody style sustain as a result.

The combination of a mahogany body with the maple top creates stunning, articulate resonance in sound. The sleek F holes in the body top are not only there as finishing touches but they also enhance the semi-hollow appearance, tonality and sustain of the guitar.

SINGLE-PIECE MAHOGANY NECK

The single-piece mahogany neck is fitted to the body with a classic Mortis and Tenon joint which is further secured using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive to give a strong and durable feel when playing. This 2015 model also features the new SlimTaper style neck profile to accelerate play.

The 22-fret fingerboard is constructed with medium shade rosewood and styled with Mother of Pearl dot inlay and white binding for a smooth, comfortable transition up and down the neck.

At the back of the headstock is the nifty G FORCE tuning system. This enables you to retune the strings to a standard or alternative tuning without having to use a separate guitar or piece of tuning equipment. The innovative G FORCE system has continued to be developed by Gibson over the last eight years to improve usability and accuracy.

BURST BUCKER PICKUPS

The Midtown Standard 2015 model is equipped with Burst Bucker pickups which were designed to reanimate the tones of Gibson’s Patent Applied For (PAF) humbucker pickups. From the sweet highs to low end tones and intricate mid-ranges, the Burst Bucker pickups can cover all genres, making it a versatile model to play.

Each Burst Bucker pickup has its own volume and tone control that you can adjust to suit your style and playing needs.

The pickups empower this guitar to project a big, classic humbucker sound that will stand the test of time.

SOLID HARDWARE

The lower part of the body is equipped with a chrome-plated Tune-o-matic bridge and Stop Bar style tailpiece which both contribute to a richer tone and improved sustain.

The Gibson Midtown Standard 2015 model can cover a vast range of musical genres and is a spectacle in itself. This guitar will sound truly unique for years to come and deserves to be preserved. To help you do that, it comes with a handy but sturdy Gibson hardshell case which has an ergonomic, solid outer with a cushioned interior to provide protection and insulation when on the road.

Bargain
Posted on 20/01/2016 by keith Had to have one of these when I saw the price,a real bargain for an American made Gibson,excellent fit and finish and lovely tone.The tuners work really well and are nothing to worry about,plus they can be swapped out easily if you wanted to,but why bother?All in all a great buy at £799.
Quality at a bargain price
Posted on 31/12/2015 by strummer When I saw Dawsons were selling the Midtown for just under £800 I had to have one.An American Gibson for that money is not to be ignored,great quality,excellent fit and finish,brilliant set up and sounds wonderful.The G Force tuners work great and are nothing to worry about,these can be easily swapped out for standard items if they really are not your thing,but why bother?A great buy and great service from Dawsons as usual.
