Insert 2: Gibson Sonex-180 Custom
Guitars and Parts for Sale
Insert 2 The Sonex-180 Custom, along with the Deluxe and Standard was one of the three models in the series launched in 1980. It was the top of the line initially, though now superceded by the Sonex Artist. This pre-owners insert shows the guitar on one side, with body and neck specifications on the other - the text comes from page 61 of the 1980 catalogue, and, like that of the Deluxe, has not been updated to include the new finish options listed in the April '81 price list.
US list prices: Ebony or White (semi-gloss finishes) $449; Candy Apple Red or White (high-gloss finishes) $475
