Gibson Modern Double-Cut

You may have seen it on Gibson.com for a while, but Gibson Custom’s new Modern Double Cut Standard likely deserves a news alert of its own. In a press release, Gibson Custom says:

“The Modern Double Cut Standard from Gibson Custom combines new thinking and proven design in one beautifully crafted guitar.

“Features include a first-of-its-kind swept neck heel that allows easy access to all 24 frets, an extra-long neck tenon to maximize sustain, a sleek new Apex headstock carve for strength and durability and a perfectly-balanced, contoured double-cutaway profile.

“All of this adds up to a bold new Gibson Custom instrument destined to become a player favorite.”
