The Lizzy Hale Explorer
Let’s be honest, Lizzy Hale is one of the greatest singers and guitarists in hard rock history. Now Halestorm‘s frontwomen has released her own signature model and it’s absolutely stunning. This rocking Explorer has 22 frets and a mahogany body & neck. The Gibson crew says this beauty includes “A Classic and 57 Classic Plus pickups, select tone-woods, and high-quality locking hardware. To top it all off, the super-fast neck and unparalleled Gibson set-up will send you sizzling with incendiary riffs or laying down fat, chunky rhythm, whatever the gig requires”.
The Firebird 7
The Firebird has always been a unique model for guitarists (and bassists). It is not as popular as the Les Paul or the SG, but as soon as someone picks it up, there is a good chance he or she will stay with it for a lifetime. This one has got our immediate attention. First of all because of its color, this “Blue Mist” is just as sweet as other popular red or black guitars. Secondly, the triple 57 Gibson humbucker pickups, Which we are big fans of – on any guitar. Specs include a mahogany/walnut neck-through, mahogany body and 22 frets.
The SGS3 2015
Did we mention we are big fans of triple humbucker pickups? Well, here they are again, this time on this magnificent black SG with a mahogany body & neck and 22 frets. Gibson says the guitar “Takes the timeless elegance of the ‘Black Beauty’ model and applies it to the iconic SG body style to create a stunning homage to this early ’60s rocker”. Notice the tune-o-matic bridge and the sideways vibrola (all gold plated), which does not appear on your regular custom SG’s.
The DJ Ashba Signature Les Paul
Guns N’ Roses, SIXX: AM and Motley Crue – To all those rock bands, guitarist DJ Ashba gives his great style of playing. Now he presents his own model. The Gibson crew defines it as “A guitar that brings it all to the party for looks, playing feel, and utterly scorching tone. With unique graphics on a satin Charcoal Gray finish with black plastics and binding, sleek play-ability, DJ’s choice of hot Seymour Duncan pickups and versatile wiring mods – this guitar is primed to get you seen and heard”.
The Flying V 120
Who wouldn’t like to own an original Flying V? No matter what other rocking shapes guitar companies will come up with, everybody always goes back to this traditional design. In white, the guitar might just be the prettiest of them all. The Gibson site says that “The traditional ‘arrowhead’ headstock has a white plastic truss-rod cover with Gibson logo, and there’s a commemorative ‘120th Anniversary’ banner at the 12th fret. It doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
