First look at Gibson 2017 models

A site called “The Hub” at Musician’s Friend has just posted an article showing some of Gibson’s new models for 2017.  This information isn’t available on the Gibson website yet, and there are some rather tasty-looking guitars in the new line-up, with a few colours that verge on gaudy (sometimes possibly from the wrong side!).

You can find their article by following this link.  Surprisingly, although I’m not particularly an SG fan (nothing against them either), I thought that the SG Special below looks really smart.  I’m also partial to the rather colourful Les Paul Standard depicted on that page, at the other end of the spectrum between sober and gaudy finishes!

Anderton’s has also got on the Gibson 2017 bandwagon with some more picture on their blog.

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
