The UK guitar forum ‘thefretboard’ has an interesting thread about a possible new Gibson guitar model, which as yet has no name. A picture taken at the CES Show gives an indication of what we could expect from the US guitar firm.

Prototype?

Well, they certainly look different to Gibson’s traditional models, although there might be a little similarity to its Tak Matsumoto signature model.

CES is a consumer electronics show, so it is interesting that Gibson chose this US trade show to show off new guitar models, especially with Winter NAMM Show just around the corner. I will, of course, update you with any more information as I get it, but for now, head over to thefretboard.co.uk forum and have a look through the original thread posted earlier this afternoon.

Check out the image below and comment on your thoughts here and over at the forum.

    Love them!

    • Jef

      Have to admit I like the look. Not sure about 24 frets with that access though… But they look good.

  • Dave George

    Yawwwwn…

    • Jef

      At least it’s not a Firebird-X…

  • Brian Tea

    Needs a more streamlined headstock and a whammy bar

    • Jef

      Whammy bar – yes, headstock -no… I like the headstock! But, hey, great feedback.

  • Josh

    What

  • Jp

    What about the guitar behind the three colors of the prototype? It looks like a solid body Barney Kessel
