Gibson's Guitar of the Month for July is Now Available at Musician's Friend

Direct marketer of music gear Musician's Friend announces that the limited edition Gibson Guitar of the Month for July is now available to order. Gibson is featuring a unique guitar each month during 2008 and is highlighting the Gibson Longhorn Double Cut Electric Guitar with Trans Blue Finish during July. The Longhorn guitar was produced in a limited run of 1,000 instruments, so guitar enthusiasts are encouraged to act quickly to be able to add it to their collections.

The Gibson Longhorn Double Cut Guitar has a unique body style that incorporates slightly extended, asymmetrical cutaways on a solid piece of mahogany with an AA figured maple top. The special-design L.R. Baggs piezo pickup beneath the Tune-O-Matic bridge combined with two EMG-85 active humbuckers housed in the bridge and neck offer an extended range of tonal options. Separate pickup outputs enable guitarists to use the pickups individually or blend their sounds. The Longhorn has a 1950s-era rounded mahogany neck, traditional headstock, and flowerpot inlays on the headstock that date back to Gibson's guitars, mandolins, and archtops of the early 1900s.

Musician's Friend also offers many other fine Gibson guitars including the revolutionary Gibson Robot Guitar with a groundbreaking self-tuning system. Gibson Robots are available in the SG and Les Paul body styles with several finish options including a new flashy metallic green.
