9.3 Rating Eye Guitar Gibson has long been known for its pioneering guitar designs, and all have set their own standards in guitar innovation. Now, Gibson USA is proud to continue the tradition by adding to the legacy – introducing the new 2009 Limited Run Series Eye Guitar, available beginning April 1 in a strictly limited number of only 350 guitars. This stunning new design features an ultra-pointy, offset double-cutaway body dressed in a nitrocellulose lacquer Fired Engine Red finish that’s matched on the headstock. Powder-coated pickup covers echo the theme. The swooping, symmetrical pickguard is totally original and unique, while the jet-black ebony fingerboard — without position markers — adds a touch of elegance and simplicity. Like many traditional Gibson guitars, its solid mahogany body and glued-in mahogany neck help maximize resonance and sustain, while the ebony fingerboard adds an edge of clarity and definition to every note. The pickups, a 490R at the neck and a 498T at the bridge, are the optimum humbuckers for hard rockin’ performance, blended with a dash of vintage-voiced sweetness. And like all of the new 2009 Limited Run Series guitars, only 350 will be produced, each one to come equipped with a Gibson USA hardshell case and special 2009 Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity.
