We all know that Gibson's on a winning streak at the moment. Re-vamping their USA lineups of electrics and acoustics, and recently taking their sister brand Epiphone's electric line back to the elements that players ACTUALLY wanted, proved highly successful in getting their instruments back in the hands of new, freshly inspired guitar players. Recently, they've added the cherry to the top of the cake by finishing up their line of Epiphone acoustics, getting things back to basics and honouring their classic designs, giving them the best 'vintage' treatment possible, while still hitting the right price points. A tall order, but we think they've managed to complete the task!
Jack takes 4 of the new 'Inspired by Gibson' acoustics, an undeniable lineup consisting of three timeless Gibson designs, plus one with a modernised, cutaway-infused twist. If you're a classic Gibson acoustic enthusiast on a budget, or just want a taste of that unique and iconic tone, you're in for a treat.
