Gibson Guitar T-Shirt

 

Orville Gibson founded Gibson Guitars in 1902 as The Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co., Ltd. in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Gibson invented archtop guitars by constructing the same type of carved, arched tops used on violins. By the 1930s, the company also manufactured flattop acoustic guitars, and one of the first commercially available hollow-body electric guitars, popularized by Charlie Christian.

Gibson sells guitars builds one of the world's most iconic guitars, the Gibson Les Paul. Many Gibson instruments are highly collectible. Gibson was at the forefront of innovation in acoustic guitars, especially in the big band era of the 1930s; the Gibson Super 400 was widely imitated. In 1952, Gibson introduced its first solid-body electric guitar, the Les Paul which became its most popular guitar to date— designed by Ted McCarty and Les Paul.
