Gibson Midtown Custom 2012 - Used
Gibson Midtown Custom finished in Cherry Sunburst
Made in 2012
Nice example and great sounding.
Overall condition is excellent but there's a couple of minor chips in the back of the neck and an area on the back where the guitar stand has reacted with the nitro-cellulose finish and created an indentation.
No fret wear, no buckle rash and all original.
Currently set-up with 10-46 gauge strings.
Gibson hard case and candy included.

Semi-hollow Hybrid Guitar
The Gibson Midtown Custom is the innovative and exciting hybrid you've been looking for. Gibson started with a solid mahogany body, which they chambered and then topped with a solid maple cap. You'll love the feel of the new Midtown body shape. Larger than your typical solidbody but smaller than a hollowbody, the Midtown feels just right cradled in your arms. And the '60s Slim-Taper neck gives you the comfortable playability you expect from a Gibson. A pair of Burstbuckers and a gorgeous nitro finish top off the Gibson Midtown Custom.
Gibson Midtown Custom at a Glance:
Unique Body Construction and Size
Black Richlite fingerboard
The Gibson Midtown Custom has a Black Richlite fingerboard. This extremely dense material gives you the look of ebony - along with snappy attack and prodigious sustain typical of that revered tonewood. Richlite is made primarily of (recycled) paper (certified by the Forest Stewardship Council) from managed forests. The paper is treated with resin, then pressed and baked to create solid sheets. The same material has been used for decades in aerospace, the marine industry, and in sports (e.g., skate ramp surfaces), so you know it's durable. Environmental sustainability and great sustain - Black Richlite gives you both.
