Gibson Banjo – Christmas Special

by | 24 Dec, 2008


In honor of the traditional yuletide season, Gibson Original Acoustic Instruments has introduced a special 12-piece collection of one-of-a-kind Christmas Banjos.

These exquisite works of art are from the makers of the world’s finest line of bluegrass instruments, and they reflect the incomparable vision, skill and dedication of Gibson’s luthiers. In addition to the elegant, figured design of the banjo’s resonator and its ornamental inlays, each Christmas Banjo will feature a different holiday-themed inlay at the 12th fret. The designs for all peg-head and fingerboard inlays, including the beautiful frosted holly leaf design on the resonator, are renderings created by noted Gibson engineer and resident artist Darron DuBose.

If the rumblings amongst the bluegrass community are any indication, Gibson’s new Christmas Banjos are primed to become some of the most desirable new collector’s items and investment pieces on the market.

From 12th December, Gibson will begin offering these 12 extraordinary holiday-themed banjos at authorized Gibson Original Acoustic Instruments dealers.
