The new Dusk Tiger features a Les Paul-inspired body design with a flat top like a Jr. and is made from an exotic hardwood. The body is tone-chambered and has a unique pickguard and control layout. The electronic controls gives it a near unlimited sound possiblities. Some features include: An active 4-band programmable parametric EQ, magnetic and piezo pickups, switchable LP-Z Hi-def impedance circuit with both 1/4″ and XLR outputs.
This seems like a very advanced guitar and I wonder if it will sound as good as it “looks” on paper. I have found in my 30+ years of guitar travels that simpler is almost always better and you end up playing the more complex gear rather than the music. Give me a LP Jr. or Esquire through a 5F6-A or 5E3 and I’m a happy geetar picker. How much can you really improve or re-design an electric guitar? We’ll just have to wait and see with this new Gibson Dusk Tiger.
