Gibson have long been a household name in the guitar industry, gathering critical acclaim for their highly revered range of instruments. This year Gibson are delivering a choice of traditional and high performance guitars across their range. Not only this but the guitar giants are setting out to release a brand new affordable S Series. With models in the S Series reportedly starting at $399 and still retaining their manufactured in the USA status, Gibson have set a new precedent for NAMM 2017.

One of the most notable mentions of the new Gibson releases is the Gibson S Series M2, which features Mini- button tuners, a tektoid nut, Gibson Pro-Buckers, Rosewood fingerboard and simple tone and volume controls. Guaranteed to achieve that classic Gibson sound at a fraction of the standard price, the S Series M2 boasts extreme value for money in a robust and high quality package. A satin slim taper maple neck make for an exceptionally comfortable playing experience, letting you traverse your guitar with unprecedented ease.

The Gibson S Series Firebird Zero again provides exceptional quality at an exceptional price. With a new light gloss finish and poplar based Firebird design, you can expect a completely genuine and authentic playing experience comparable to the the more expensive studio models. Fitted with Rhythm and Lead Double Slug "DS-C" humbuckers the Gibson S Series Firebird Zero delivers devastating tone with significant punch.

More at the heftier end of the price spectrum comes Gibson's Les Paul Tribute 2017 HP. With an improved G Force auto tuning feature that has been updated to be even faster and more accurate than ever. Great for applying alternate tunings, the G Force tuner is now equipped with quieter gears to allow for a smoother transition between tunings.

More geared towards the lead player, the Gibsob Les Paul Tribute 2017 features an advanced neck design whose slim-taper neck allows for lightning solos and easy access to the guitars higher register. 57 Classic humbucker pickups create legendary PAF- inspired tones so that you can get an extra kick whilst in the bridge position!

Gibson's 2017 bass range is indeed an exciting affair. The EB 4 bass 2017 features a swamp ash body and a completely ergonomic design. Fitted with EB Rhythm & Lead humbuckers the EB 4 bass projects authentic Gibson style tone with an intimidating presence. Again with many of Gibson's range, the Gibson EB 4 bass features a rounded profile that allows for an extremely comfortable playing experience for any genre or style.

To be exclusively previewed at this years winter NAMM show, Gibsons 2017 is gathering masses of attention. To keep updated with all the latest NAMM news check out our NAMM 2017 guitars page
