The Gibson Custom Historic Collection
The Legacy Lives On


For decades, Gibson Custom’s handmade Historic models have given players and collectors the tone, feel and soul of rare and coveted vintage Gibson guitars. 2015 saw the most comprehensive benchmark in the quest for historical accuracy with the introduction of “True Historic” construction and parts. Gibson Custom is pleased to announce that in 2018, the Historic Collection will utilize those features and more in every year-specific guitar recreation. From hot hide glue construction to chemically re-engineered parts to precise contours based on scans of hundreds of vintage examples, Gibson Custom proudly believes we are at our pinnacle in terms of attention to detail and magic added by the fine American craftsmanship and expertise found within the Custom Shop walls.
