Welcome to the Gibson.com
Editorial Blog, a loosely literary leviathan shaking off its slumber after nearly a year’s dormancy. There’s a lot of new blood in the literary pool, these days. (Okay, enough with the spooky, aquatic metaphors!) In the last three-or-so months, we’ve added an editor, a social media editor and an international editor. And little old me, your editorial director on this cruise.
The purpose of this blog is to entertain, perhaps to educate, but mostly to give you a glimpse inside the minds that make up this group of Nashville ne’er-do-wells and give you a better perspective of what’s going on here at Gibson.com
. It’s been an action-packed year already. We’ve had exclusive interviews with a bevy of artists, including Slash
, Sammy Hagar
, Steve Miller
, Alex Lifeson
and many, many others. We’ve also given you a first glimpse at some of the most amazing new guitars on the planet, such as the Slash Appetite Les Paul
, the Joan Jett Blackheart
, the Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster
, the Epiphone Swingster
and the 50th Anniversary 1960 ES-335TD
. These are exciting times around Gibson, and we’d like to share our little corner of that world with you.
So, check in with us once a week (two, if we’re feeling frisky), and by all means, leave us comments! We’d love to hear what’s on your mind.
