Guitarist  |  Summer 2017  


THREE KINGS: GIBSON SIGNATURE SEMIS
Aside from being a trio of signature limited editions for 2017, in terms of construction, our review models also book-end Gibson’s ES ‘thinline’ models from the original classic, the ES-335, which spawned the ES-355 and ES-345, up to the latest, the ES Les Paul. The Freddie King 1960 ES-345 is based on the hugely influential bluesman’s own guitar, Alex Lifeson’s latest signature uses the iconography of the Les Paul Custom but in semi-hollow ES LP style, while the lesser known Tamio Okuda is clearly a man of taste, mixing the hollow 1959 spec ES-330 with P-90s and a Bigsby. Both King and Lifeson models are limited runs of 200 pieces; the Okuda of 150. All three are what you see is what you get, there no options. While it’s hard to second guess the price-points and style of Gibson’s often forward-looking USA production range, the Memphis division output has never failed to impress us with an eye firmly on the past.

Whether you’re just starting out with your first guitar or you’ve been hamming the strings for years, no matter what your level, Guitarist Magazine is the perfect accompaniment to help improve your technique and develop your playing style. Each issue brings you expert tutorials from some of the world’s best players to help you perfect your technique and develop your talents.
