Gibson electric acoustic guitars

Full depth hollow body guitars

Electric acoustic guitars

The Gibson electric acoustic, or cello-bodied, guitars produced at the Kalamazoo plant in Michigan USA are some of the finest guitars ever built. These high quality hand-built instruments had a price to match, and were only produced in small numbers, by skilled craftsmen.

But these 'Jazz boxes' are the guitars that sealed Gibsons reputation: quality only really matched by the likes of Guild and Epiphone; out of the reach of Fender, and the vast majority of other manufacturers at the time. Have a look at some of the superb Gibson Jazz Guitars produced over the last half century.

Many of these instruments are associated with jazz guitarists, and indeed some are named after musicians: e.g. Barney Kessel, Johnny Smith, Tal Farlow, and Trini Lopez.
