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. Additionally, because Gibson brand guitars are handcrafted, it is normal for wood grains, finishes and some measurements to vary from those listed on this Web site. 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.
