For the past 127 years, Gibson has been synonymous with creating, inspiring, supporting and shaping sound. Gibson has emerged as the legitimate industry leader by leveraging its’ iconic past and leaning into the innovative future. Gibson is gearing up for another record year with compelling new products, innovative new platforms, stunning artist collaborations, dealer-focused solutions, and momentum around Gibson Gives, all moving the iconic, Nashville-based brand forward in 2021 and beyond.
Led by James “JC” Curleigh as President and CEO, a passionate music lover, Gibson shifted into 127-year-old start-up mode, with a clear focus on leveraging the iconic past and leaning into the innovative future. The addition of MESA/Boogie and new leadership and talent have infused Gibson Custom Shop, Epiphone, Kramer, and KRK, optimizing supply chains and driving healthy growth with modern methods and an integrated digital platform in the U.S., and for exports worldwide.
