Can't wait for a new model? Check out our latest arrivals and new markdowns on 2017 Gibson Acoustics here:

SJ-200 Standard VS

From its inaugural appearance in 1937, Gibson's SJ-200 set an unmatched standard. The 2018 SJ-200 continues a legacy of the world's most famous acoustic guitar, and certainly one of the most popular. The Super Jumbo has been the "Artist's Choice" for all styles of music, from rock to country. This iconic model is capable of a rich, full sound with a deep bass and crystal clear highs. 

Hummingbird

Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for picking lead lines. Its spacious mahogany body and sweet, select Sitka spruce top are more than capable of nailing down the rhythm in the hands of a rock and roll sideman, or accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today’s alternative singer-songwriter.

J-45 Standard

The J-45 is Gibson's best-selling acoustic of all time. Nicknamed "The Workhorse" and first introduced in 1942, this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights. This 2018 model delivers a sound with incredible dynamic range, warm mids, and a tight punchy bass. 

Hummingbird Rosewood AG

The Hummingbird Rosewood Avant Garde is our new modern square shoulder, slim body depth, rosewood cutaway guitar. Handcrafted with the same time-tested build techniques as our most iconic models. Each Gibson Acoustic is full of expression, character, and exquisite beauty and this new modern styled instrument is no different. Superb for all contemporary styles, whether just chording, or for intricate solo music. 

Parlor Rosewood AG

Gibson has a long history of pioneering small-body acoustic guitar designs. The Parlor Rosewood Avant Garde is the next evolution of what a small-body instrument should sound like. Never before has a slim, small-body cutaway guitar offered such a giant sound. Excellent playability and distinctive styling complete the package. World class acoustic tone suitable for home, studio, stage or high-level professional performance.

 

J-45 Walnut Burst

“The J-45 Walnut Avant Garde offers an innovative, slim body, round shoulder cutaway guitar with all the traditional build techniques that go into each Gibson Acoustic. A Solid Sitka Spruce top with traditional hand scalloped bracing is joined by beautiful walnut back and sides which provide a full and balanced tonal range and superior clarity between each string”

J-15

The 2018 Gibson J-15 is hand-built in Bozeman, Montana with the same time-tested luthiery techniques that make our guitars the most sought-after instruments in the world.  This impressive guitar features a dovetail neck-to-body joint secured with hide glue, scalloped bracing, and a hand sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
