Archive Series Theodore Antique Natural VOS 2022 Item Description

Barely used and in overall mint collectors condition, this was a very unique release from the Gibson Custom Shop in 2022: the Archive Series Theodore, this one in the Antique Natural VOS finish. The guitar includes the Gibson shipping box, case, COA and all original case accesssories. There were only 318 guitars produced between the three finish options!

Guitar industry legend and Gibson president through the '50s and '60s Ted McCarty helped develop some of the brands most iconic designs including the Les Paul, ES-335 and Explorer. He was known for sketching new instrument ideas during meetings, and on March 18th, 1957 - Ted drew and presented a new solidbody design which has never been produced - until today!

The 'Theodore' as built by Gibson Custom Shop features an alder body with a scimitar headstock design, two florentine cutaways and a walnut center strip. The guitar is built to be a lightweight and balanced instrument with two P-90 pickups and a wraparound bridge.

Includes: Original Shipping Box, Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Case Candy
