It’s not every day that Gibson releases a new body shape. Inspired by original drawings from 1957-during the same era when the legendary ES-335, Flying V™, and Explorer™ models were designed to modernize the Gibson product lineup-the Gibson Theodore Standard features a mahogany body, scimitar headstock with Grover® Mini Rotomatic® tuners, and striking double Florentine cutaways that provide unimpeded access to all 22 frets on the rosewood-capped, SlimTaper™ mahogany neck. The balanced construction is exceptionally comfortable, and the powerful ‘57 Classic™ and ‘57 Classic Plus humbucker™ pickups produce effortless sustain and a rich diversity of tones. While it was sketched in the 1950s, the Gibson Theodore Standard is fresh and modern today, and the instrument’s light weight, balance, and comfort make it a joy to play. The Gibson Theodore Standard is available worldwide in Antique Natural, Vintage Cherry, and Ebony. A hardshell case is also included.
