The November edition of the Guitar of the Month series from Gibson is, just like May edition Longhorn Double Cutaway, but this model, the Gibson Double Cut Longhorn HS Guitar must be a little bit different, the point is that I don’t know where to find the differences excluding the finish, besides this the guitar of the month model looks like a really good guitar but it is worth the money?
The features of the Gibson Double Cut Longhorn HS Guitar are mahogany body with AA flamed maple top, mahogany neck, 60’s tapered neck profile, 22 frets, 24.75″ scale length, Tune-o-matic bridge, two active EMG humbucker pickups and one, almost invisible, L.R. Baggs transducer pickup, 2 output jacks (one for active and one for transducer pickups), 3-way pickup switch and two volume and one tone controls.
The guitar has some cool features like the EMG pickups or the dual output but what is better, for me, is the double cut-away shape with that great finish, maybe the active pickups are a little bit out of the common color tone. The Gibson Double Cut Longhorn HS Guitar will be soon available and its MSRP is $3,500.
