Gibson Custom Shop Announces "Inspired By" Series Guitars

December 21, 2005

Meticulously recreating Jimi's guitar has been a labor of love for the Gibson Custom Shop. Originally painted by Hendrix with what appears to be nail polish, the Custom Shop has used materials which reproduce the same sense of depth and texture. The materials and hardware are faithful reproductions of the original.

The Inspired By guitars are all handmade instruments crafted by Gibson's famous Custom Shop, featuring one-of-a-kind looks, style, and tone. The Jimi Hendrix Psychedelic Flying V will be on display throughout CES at Gibson Guitar Booth CP1 (Central Plaza 1) outside the main entrance. In addition to the guitar, guests will have a chance to view rare Hendrix memorabilia on loan from Experience Music Project.
