Gibson Archive Collection - Theodore in Ebony

Gibson's legendary former president Theodore "Ted" McCarty helped develop some of the most iconic electric guitars during the 1950s and early 1960s, including the Les Paul, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, SG, and Firebird.

He enjoyed sketching new instrument ideas during meetings and the height of his creative output was in 1957 when he sought to modernize Gibson's electric guitar designs. 

On March 18th, 1957, Ted detailed and signed his drawing for a new solid-body instrument which was never produced...until now!

The Gibson Custom Shop is proud to present the "Theodore", inspired by Ted McCarty's original drawing and notes. 

Its unique features include an Alder body, scimitar headstock, double florentine cutaways, and a Walnut center strip. The lightweight and balanced construction is paired with a set of powerful P-90 pickups.

This very special Archive Collection run is limited to only 318 instruments worldwide! 

Each instrument includes a historic-style brown/pink case, a premium leather strap, a print of the original drawing, a 1957 style catalog page print, and a deluxe Certificate of Authenticity.

  • Pickups: P-90
  • Neck: Mahogany
  • Fretboard: Indian Rosewood
