Gibson Guitars are renowned for their durability, unique sound, and classic style. Famous for their flagship guitar, the Gibson Les Paul Guitar, Gibson guitars hold their value well, and some of the older, vintage models can fetch a tidy sum. When you are buying a vintage Gibson guitar, what can you expect?
Generally, you can expect a quality build, and excellent playability – but it can vary from model to model. Your best bet is to research a few different models, and make a short list of the guitars that jump out at you. Get your hands on one, so you can get a ‘feel’ for the instrument, and see how it feels in your hands.
Ideally, a guitarist or music shop is your best friend. Ask to have the Gibson plugged into a quality guitar amp, and give it a good thrashing. Ultimately, the best guitar for you is the one that makes playing songs enjoyable.
