Today the Custom Shop series features historic models such as: The ‘54 model with P-90 and wrap-around-tailpiece, the ’56 model with P-90, tune-o-matic bridge und stop-bar-tailpiece or the ’57 model with humbuckers. For 2013 some important changes were made to the specs of the Gibson Historics:
  • the rosewood fretboard is one-piece again
  • no tubing for the trussrod anymore
  • historically correct hideglue is used for the neck joint
  • back and sides are dyed with historically correct anilin dyes
  • the coloring of the goldtop finish is historically correct
  • the coloring of neck and body binding is historically correct
  • the Kluson tuners are more authentic
