The Custom Shop Modern Double Cut is a not-so gentle reminder that Gibson are a leading force in designing the current landscape of electric guitars. These fiery body shapes are aggressive, contemporary and lend themselves to a plethora of music genres.

Construction

Gibson have added an extra two frets to the Les Paul template, maintaining a 24.75 inch neck scale length. It will feel like familiar territory despite the new shape. The ‘Standard’ series is equipped with a classic rosewood fingerboard, mahogany body and a one-piece mahogany neck. It’ll retain the resonance of a LP even with the cutaway and sweeping neck heel to allow better access to the medium-jumbo frets.

Sound

You’ll find the Modern Double Cut houses a pair of 57 Classic pickups. These are similar to original PAF vintage rock humbuckers, yet their even windings give them a rich tonally balanced output. They deliver plenty of retro sweet tone with balance over the whole EQ spectrum.

Hardware

Modern Gibson guitars are extremely reliable thanks to the appointment of an ABR-1 bridge, which is comfy for the resting hand and maintains solid tuning intonation. At the other end are quality Grover kidney tuners and a Corian nut. The 500k tone and volume pots allow for plenty of nuanced adjustment during your playing.
