gibson double cutaway

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here tried playing one of these? I see a UK retailer is offering a supposedly substantial discount on the list price

I had the 1959 version some time ago.  It was amazing.

sorry my bad they're called 'double cut' not double cutaway - they had 2 others as well as this one when i looked earlier

I don't hate it.  The Firebird head stock would have gone better with the body, though, imo.

Those might be good if someone else made them because guitar players only want the traditional Gibson models.  I would like to try out that new Gibson Modern Double Cut.  The only thing wrong is that it is new, so the body looks weird right now.

To me it almost looks like a B3 knockoff with the wrong headstock.

Ah, but:

New = $4400

Used = $450

yes the one I'd originally seen was nicer looking with a flame maple top and a red-yellow sunburst reduced from about £3600 to £2399. They certainly weren't shy with the original prices.  I thought the cutaways looked slightly PRS-ish

Verily, verily. A 22-fret neck would have made for a better looking product, as well.

That's a 'Henry J.' era design, isn't it?  That could drop the used price down to Tree Fitty or less..

Henry J era design by Mean Gene. It’s close but it’s not exact. I think that Gibson definitely took inspiration from it. Gibson’s got balls suing people of theft of intellectual property LOL.

I'm not a fan of the changes he made.  That large upper horn just makes me want to carry it around by it.

I’m not a fan of what Gibson did to it 😉

You offered to give me lots of money before.  Now, just give it to you?
