Gibson's 110th Birthday: Five of the Best Obscure Gibson Models

We look at some of Gibson's strange and wonderful offerings   11-Oct-12

In at number 3

3. Gibson Moderne

This guitar was definitely ahead of its time, it looked a bit like somebody sneezed while trying to draw the body of a Flying V. It was so ahead of its time that it didn't even make it past the prototype stage in 1957, it then had a moderately successful run in 1982, but finally throwing their full weight behind it, Gibson have rereleased it once again this year.

Reaction was fairly positive when it was released again this year, it is not even known whether any were made in the 1950s, and the 80s version is popular with collectors, so a new release was always going to have its fans.

It's a thing of beauty, and now you can actually buy one brand new… if you don't mind parting with $2599.
