Moderne®: Holy Grail of Vintage Guitars

OUR PART #  00001208


The Moderne is an electric guitar designed by Gibson® in 1957 alongside the Gibson® Flying V® and Gibson® Explorer® as part of a stylistically advanced line. Sources claim that Gibson® made a handful of prototypes, but an original has yet to surface. The Moderne® was eventually put into production in 1982. Because of their very limited production and forward design, Moderne® guitars are highly sought by collectors. Here is the story, explained in interviews and photos, of this curious development associated with the golden era of guitar making.
