(formerly Gibson Guitar Corp.) is an American manufacturer of guitars, other musical instruments, and consumer and professional electronics now based in Nashville, Tennessee. Gibson invented archtop guitars by constructing the same type of carved, arched tops used on violins.
The company was formerly known as Gibson Guitar Corp. By the 1930s, the company was also making flattop acoustic guitars, as well as one of the first commercially available hollow-body electric guitars, used and popularized by Charlie Christian.
Gibson then formed a new division, Gibson Pro Audio, which will deliver professional grade audio items, including headphones, loudspeakers and DJ equipment.
These "modernistic" guitars did not sell initially.
In 2014, Gibson acquired the consumer electronics business of Royal Philips.
In October 2017 Gibson announced Gibson brands is set to relocate its Memphis operations to a smaller location and plans to sell the massive facility that it currently calls home.
The first Byrdlands were slim, custom built, L-5 models for guitarists Billy Byrd and Hank Garland. Other models such as the ES-350T and the ES-225T were introduced as less costly alternatives. Similar in size to the hollow-body Thinlines, the ES-335 family had a solid center, giving the string tone a longer sustain.
In the 1950s, Gibson also produced the Tune-o-matic bridge system and its version of the humbucking pickup, the PAF ("Patent Applied For"), first released in 1957 and still sought after for its sound.
