We are proud to introduce the first of its kind Gibson Custom Shop Made 2 Measure Center right here in The Music Zoo showroom! If you have ever dreamed about custom ordering a Gibson guitar, we are now making it easier than ever to dial in your exact specs. Plus, here at The Music Zoo’s M2M Center you can pick your own figured top from our hand-selected inventory!
Keep in mind that you can custom order virtually any model that Gibson offers like a Historic Select Les Paul, Standard Historic Les Paul, Junior, Special, CS-336, CS-356, ES-335 or Archtop guitar. Exclusively here at The Music Zoo, you can even choose Roasted Mahogany for your body and neck. Like a Beauty of the Burst guitar? We can replicate it! Want a custom color and aging? No problem! The process is easy:
Flip through available figured tops, hand-selected by our team from Gibson’s facility in Nashville.
Choose a neck profile from one of numerous raw neck blank examples.
Select a solid, chambered, or weight relieved body.
Select a finish from numerous color examples provided by Gibson Custom Shop’s paint department.
Once you have settled on a base model, picked your top, neck and color, our team will assist you in selecting electronics, hardware and aging options. We’ll FedEx your top to the Custom Shop and they’ll get going on your build!
