Gibson USA introduces the new 2015 collection. The 2015 guitars come with many new features, like the Zero Fret Nut and the further developed G-Force tuning system, and are made of the rarest and finest woods. Discover them now!
Eight years in development, the new Gibson G-Force improves on the innovations introduced in Min-E Tune with simplified ease of use, an enhanced feature set, and increased speed. Standard on most 2015 models, Gibson G-force provides the best and simplest experience yet in an automatic tuning system. Simply push the ON button, strum your strings once and your guitar will do the rest. G-Force is standard equipment on all Gibson USA guitars aside from the LP Supreme, Firebird and Derek Trucks SG. Tuning your guitar has never been this easy!
THE FINEST WOODS
Gibson USA matches the rarest and finest woods to every guitar. This selection system provides an accurate specification for each guitar’s top, back, body carving, and fingerboard, giving you the confidence of knowing exactly what woods our luthiers chose when crafting your new guitar.
Zero Fret Adjustable Nut
With the new Zero Fret Nut, the strings pass over a zero fret without slots. This technique ensures consistent playability and tone, because the open string notes will sound the same as fretted ones. Furthermore it stimulates experimenting with other gauges, because it’s no longer needed to upgrade the nut for bigger slots. The zero fret and the nut itself are fixed together in a single unit so the string height is easily adjustable. (photo: Michael James Adams, Instagram)
