Product Overview
Build a guitar right and its beauty and desirability never go out of style. Plenty of traditionalists still seek a new instrument constructed exactly like the great originals of the 1930s, ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. Welcome the True Vintage series, “These are for the true collector,” says Voltz. “They’ve just got that vibe,” Voltz explains.

We use aged vintage toner for a genuine vintage look, period-correct tuners, and historically accurate design touches like the advanced wide X-bracing on the Southern Jumbo and J-45, vintage thin back braces on the SJ-200 and J-185, and plenty more. Even the case is an exact model of a 1939 ES-300 case, with five-ply construction, pink lining, padded leather handle, and accurate nickel-plated hardware.

Befitting their True Vintage purity, these models do not have electronics as standard, but Gibson will retrofit them for artists who require electronics. Also, all rosewood fingerboards and bridges are made from AAA Madagascar rosewood, which Voltz says is the closest thing to endangered Brazilian rosewood (a wood listed on the CITES list of endangered species, and one which Gibson strictly refuses to use).
  • Traditional binding over fret ends
  • Traditional tuners
  • Genuine bone nut and saddle
  • Extra dark vintage-look amber toner
  • Traditional orange label
