Here's what Gordon Smith have to say about the GS1000 Special Edition:
The GS1000 Special Edition gives a modern interpretation of the classic Gordon Smith design. Complementing the beauty of the natural wood of the body with modern colour tops, premium Gotoh 510 bridge and chrome pickup cover and controls. Each guitar body is made from a single piece of Brazilian Cedar and a single-piece set neck featuring the unique Gordon Smith tone pocket. The body and neck are both fully bound.
Gordon Smith pioneered the coil-split humbucker in the 1970s and the design combines with our unique GS tone circuit to make these deceptively simple guitars super flexible. Each homewound Gordon Smith humbucker is wound on the same machine and to the same specification as the as the 1974 originals: the pick up that started a punk rock revolution.
Every Special Edition guitar is hand-built by a team of highly skilled luthiers using individually selected tone woods at our workshop in the heart of England. This guitar is hand finished in Black, Nene Blue, Postbox Red and Vintage White.
