We've been lucky to enjoy a great relationship with our premium vendors. Over the years, we've visited Taylor, Martin, Suhr, and Fender's Custom Shop factories to have a part in the creation of some truly artisan instruments. Earlier this year, we got to visit the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee to work with their talented builders and select some truly authentic pieces for our customers.
We were lucky enough to select from a short list of 'just completed' guitars. This beautiful Les Paul Custom in natural quilt is headed to Cosmo!
You can truly see that the beauty of a Gibson Custom Les Paul comes straight from the wood choice. This is a premium instrument to it's core.
