Gibson USA release new Midtown Deluxe – the Uptown Midtown…

The best of both the solidbody and semi-hollow worlds, the Midtown Deluxe provides an infinite combination of tremendous tones in an incredibly luxurious package. Limited quantities!

The Gibson Midtown Deluxe is different to most semi-hollow guitars because it is constructed with a solid Mahogany body that has been routed on either side with tone chambering like the modern weight-relief Les Pauls. The AAA Quilt Maple flat Maple top has the F holes cut in to it over the chambering so you get the semi hollow look but with the response of a solidbody guitar.
