OVERVIEW

A divine archtop with improved resonance and single floating pickup.

The debut guitar in Gibson Custom's Solid Formed Archtop Series, the 17" Hollowbody Venetian is born from a marriage of Gibson's 120-year legacy as the inventor of the archtop guitar and its ongoing reputation for innovation. This full-sized archtop is inch for inch the descendant of the legendary Gibson archtops of the 1930s, '40s and '50s, yet it surpasses even that lofty standard by employing a proprietary Solid Formed spruce top and maple back, in which the grain of the wood is redirected into the arched shape, rather than severed as in traditional carving.

The result is an elegant hollowbody archtop made form solid tonewoods, yet with a richer and more pronounced tone that lives and breathes like nothing you've ever experienced. Enhanced by a stronger neck design that uses less wood, and with its resonance unimpeded by a "floating" pickguard-mounted mini-humbucker, it's a bold leap in archtop evolution.

Through a proprietary construction process that does not sever the grain, each guitar is hand-crafted from a two-piece solid spruce top and two-piece solid maple back, resulting in 1/3 less wood usage. The Solid Formed guitar range is Eco-Friendly and offers booming tone through its unique construction and Gibson Custom's renown craftsmanship and quality. Includes hardshell case.
