The energy continues to build around the revitalized Gibson with the company announcing today their intentions to move into a new global headquarters to be located at Cummins Station, a historic property in the heart of downtown Nashville. For the past 30 years, Gibson’s headquarters has been located on the outskirts of Nashville proper. Gibson plans to expand into their new HQ by the end of 2019 and states it will be home to 100+ employees.
Hot on the heels of that news, Gibson is pleased to also announce that it will launch three new ranges of guitar strings to players worldwide.
Recognizing the large demand for top quality strings that are fitted to all Gibson instruments produced in Nashville and Bozeman, Gibson will now offer three lines of ‘Factory spec’ strings. With its new Vintage Reissue Guitar Strings, Brite Wire ‘Reinforced’ Electric Guitar Strings and Acoustic Guitar Strings, Gibson has players around the world covered from the beginner to collector. Developed and tested by our team of Master Luthiers, these strings are the exact same as those used in production since the launch of the new Original and Modern Collections, including new Gibson acoustic guitars, and are the best possible strings to adorn a Gibson guitar.
“I am very excited to bring these unique Gibson Factory spec strings to guitarists around the world,” said Jim De Cola, Master Luthier of Gibson Brands. “Guitar fans now have access to Strings that meet the Gibson standards of quality and sound for their guitar collection.”
