The Gibson Custom Modern Double Cut Standard Electric Guitar is a beautifully designed model that harmoniously partners classic style with modern sensibility. The elegantly crafted body is met with sublime appointments to ensure that the Modern Double Cut Standard is destined to become a player favourite.
Exquisitely crafted body
The body is shaped with a sweetly carved top that extends to a deep double-cutaway profile, setting out its stall as a high-performance player from the off. Thanks to the ergonomically designed curves, the body is a joy to wield with comfort and playability at the fore. Built using mahogany to establish a resounding mid-range warmth, the top is built using two-piece maple to provide a smooth, elegant finish. Protected by a slender yet resilient layer of nitrocellulose lacquer, you can rest assured that your Modern Double Cut Standard can age gracefully.
Fast playing neck
Paired with the body is a single-piece mahogany neck, which connects via a first-of-its-kind "swept neck" heel. Combined with the double-cutaway profile, the guitar offers ready access to the neck in its entirety. The medium C-shape neck profile ensures a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand, for added confidence for those who like a sturdy yet responsive neck. The extra-long neck tenon is designed to maximise strength and sustain, so that each note rings out beautifully. Married to the neck is a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is decorated with pearloid trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. Rolled binding over the frets creates a sumptuous played-in feel, yet guarantees there are plenty of miles in this gorgeous guitar yet to be explored.
Versatile pickup pairing
The Gibson Custom Modern Double Cut Standard Electric Guitar is equipped with a '57 Classic humbucker in the neck, and a '57 Classic Plus humbucker in the bridge. This winning combination generates coveted PAF-style tones that deliver a vintage vibe that springs forth with an emphatic energy. Whether you're looking to tackle some gritty blues licks, heavy hard rock riffs, sparkling jazz, freewheeling country, or maybe a bit of everything, these beauties have all bases covered.
The ABR-1 bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece work exquisitely with the nut and Grover kidney tuning machines to uphold tuning integrity, string intonation and tension with precision. The playability of the Modern Double Cut Standard is second to none, and whether you're on the small stage or playing to a stadium, it offers a flawless comfortability that allows you to play without limits. Gibson has included a hardshell case with each model, allowing you to transport your pride and joy with peace of mind.
