Additional Materials Each Midtown Standard with Bigsby® comes with adjustment literature, and documentation for the guitar’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, along with Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
In order to continually improve the design, quality and performance of our instruments and to make use of the best materials at all times, Gibson reserves the right to change specifications without notice.

As always, the prices listed are the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. Please contact an authorized Gibson dealer in your area for the most current pricing.
