The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Gibson Modern Double Cut Standard Heritage Cherry Burst, 2018

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

This new model from Gibson – the Modern Double Cut Standard, drawing from the earlier double cut designs that other brands successfully copied – is built at the Gibson shop in Nashville, Tennessee. The traditional elements are all here – the mahogany body and neck, the body with a carved figured maple cap, the neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard and pearloid trapezoidal markers, ’57 Classic humbucking pickups with tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece, and Grover Roto-Matic tuners.

What’s new is the arching upper cutaway, and the swept heel offering better access to the 24th fret. This new body shape is well balanced and pleasing to the eye – it goes well with the carved top. While the Modern Double Cut is available in quite a few colours, the Heritage Cherry Sunburst always works well with carved tops.

Here’s what Gibson has to say about the new Modern Double Cut:

“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.”

The original Gibson hard shell case is included.
