The home of Gibson electric guitars today is "Gibson USA," built in 1974 in Nashville specifically for the production of Gibson's Les Paul guitars. Although the entire guitar industry went through a slump in the late '70s, the spirit of innovation remained strong at Gibson.

In response to a growing demand for vintage stylings, Gibson tapped its rich history  and reissued the dot-neck version of the ES-335 in 1981 and the flametop sunburst Les Paul in 1982; both of which we stock here at Rocket Music. At the same time as this, two legendary guitarists joined Gibson- B.B. King in 1980 with the Lucille model and Chet Atkins in 1982 with his new concept of a solidbody acoustic guitar.

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the  future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become  classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les  Pauls (all of which we have in stock here at Rocket Music) - are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four  decades of music styles.

Gibson's close relationship with musicians is  manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard  Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal  specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's  Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for  design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality  and innovation.
