Gibson Custom Electric Guitars

Gibson Custom Electric Guitars:
Vintage Feel Without the Vintage Price

Who wouldn't want to get their hands on a vintage 1959 Les Paul? Arguably the most collectable of all vintage electric guitars, these Gibsons are full of mojo accumulated from years of playing. Sometimes, some lucky person will find a pristine model that's been aging gracefully inside its case and forgotten in a closet or attic for decades. Unfortunately, these vintage classics often carry a prohibitively expensive price tag that doesn't really fit into the budget of working musicians or even the hungriest of collectors. Here's where Gibson Custom steps in to save the day -- and your wallet.

Featuring the highest quality components, the finest craftsmanship, and an unprecedented attention to detail, Gibson Custom's electric guitars are as close to the real McCoy as possible. Check out all that Gibson Custom offers and rediscover exactly how your favorite Gibson model was meant to look, feel, and sound.
Historic Collection
Recreating your favorite models from yesteryear, Gibson Custom's Historic Collection is the culmination of years of research on actual vintage Gibsons to faithfully deliver historic spec guitars, all the way down to the exact curve of the carved tops, the assembly of the truss rod, and the classic tone imparted by bumblebee capacitors. Some of these models carry the VOS (Vintage Original Spec) treatment, which translates into slight aging of the hardware and finish for that slightly worn look.

Collector's Choice
While the Historic Collection bases their instruments on the most popular models and years, the Gibson Custom Collector's Choice series allows you to own recreations of specific guitars that hold historic significance within the realm of popular music. Whether you are interested in who owns the original, how the guitar has beautifully aged over the years, or the hit songs created using the instrument, these guitars are truly special, and Gibson has recreated every single dent, nick, and scratch -- along with finish wear and aging -- that make each and every one of these guitars unique.
 
 
 
Artist Models
Gibson Custom's Artist Series guitars were selected because of their intimate association with the artist. When you think of Duane Allman, it's not hard to picture him slinging his trusty Les Paul Standard, or Wes Montgomery and the natural, woody tone of his L-5 archtop. Similar to the Collector's Choice instruments, the Gibson Custom Shop painstakingly recreates these Artist Series guitars, all the way from the finish aging to exact pattern of the belt buckle rash.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
