The 2014 guitar line-up has just been revealed by Gibson, with the prestigious manufacturer making some interesting and innovative changes.
Check out a gallery of the new guitars over at Music Radar.
2014 also signals the 120th anniversary of the manufacturer, leading them to roll out a whopping 28 models, many of them with distinctive new pickups, features and finishes. Including some nice colour variations, new specifications to their existing guitars and some reductions in pricing. Some of the more eye catching colours include a transparent seafoam green colour on the Les Paul Classic, a transparent faded denim colour on the Les Paul Traditional and the SG Futura – Min-ETune in glossy turquoise!
On many of the new models a 120th Anniversary logo has been placed on the 12th fret position. Alongside other new features like the widespread implementation of the Min-ETune automatic tuning unit, PLEK fingerboard set ups and four new pickup types, alongside undercut frets (meaning many models with lack the 'nibs' of binding that have traditionally covered fret edges on Gibson fretboards).
Not to mention other new additions such as redesigned strap buttons, cryogenically treated fret wire, Max Grip speed knobs and the widespread deployment of GraphTech nuts.
