About Gibson Guitar Company USA
Gibson USA is inspired by a tradition of innovation that stretches back to the company’s origin in 1896. Since then, the contributions Gibson has made to the art of guitar making have been continuously impressive—the humbucking pickup, Tune-o-matic bridge, adjustable truss rod, triple-pickup Gibson guitars, semi-hollowbody Gibson guitars, P-90 pickup, cryogenically-treated frets, automatic tuning, the zero-fret adjustable nut and much more—including radical body shapes like the Flying V, Explorer and Thunderbird. Introduced in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul guitar has become—and remains—the world’s most iconic guitar.
With every instrument proudly produced in Nashville, Tennessee, Gibson USA keeps two important traditions alive: the tradition of innovation and the tradition of hand-crafted instruments that are ‘American Made and World Played’. The Gibson team is driven by a passion for perfection—even the process of selecting, grading, and sorting wood for each specific Gibson guitar requires considerable expertise, as does the engineering research behind pickup design and selecting materials that strike the ideal blend of style, tone and durability.
What may be most recognizable about a Gibson guitars isn’t the distinctive shape, technical sophistication, or exceptional playability—it’s the magic. When people play a Gibson guitar, they experience the result of hundreds of human hands working to make the best guitar possible. Just by picking one up and holding it in your hands, you can share in the rich heritage that reaches back to the 19th century, the visual appeal of a work of art and the connection to the world’s greatest artists who have chosen to express themselves with guitars from Gibson USA.
