Gibson Dusk Tiger Guitar

November 15, 2009 by  



Gibson Dusk Tiger GuitarGibson Guitars are still paving the way in terms of guitar technology. Enter the Dusk Tiger, [Gibson claims] simply the most astounding innovation in the history of the guitar. In the wake of Gibson’s groundbreaking Dark Fire, the new Dusk Tiger guitar offers an unprecedented wealth of features to expand your sonic horizons exponentially, yet it brings them to you with greatly increased levels of performance and ease of use, and all at a more affordable price.

And not only does Dusk Tiger offer an awe-inspiring versatility of tone and playability, it also captures a stunning new look that is arguably more refined than anything Gibson Guitars has ever produced. It retains the general Les Paul-inspired body lines, but presents them in a guitar with a flat top made from an exotic hardwood beaming with golden, amber, and dark chocolate hues.

All this top is coupled with a tone-chambered back, and a unique new pickguard and control layout. Under the hood, the Gibson Dusk Tiger reveals countless new features that give it even more power, along with considerable upgrades and improvements of existing electronics and control systems, and an unlimited number of sound possibilities. Take a sneak peak at the Gibson Dusk Tiger at Gear-Monkey message forum.

New to the Dusk Tiger are:

  • Programmable active four-band parametric EQ systems for both the magnetic and the piezo pickups, which allow infinite fine tuning of your tone
  • Switchable LP-Z High Definition Impedance circuit (low impedance capabilities) built into improved Neutrick jack with both ¼” and XLR outputs

    It’s actually a visual design failure. The chrome is tacky and doesn’t even follow the guitar’s curves which is something I would never expect to see from a guitar manufacturer like Gibson or even someone with a third of their reputation.

    The electronics are definitely not for me. I’m sure they’re great for some people so I won’t judge that. I’m also sure it plays fine but coming from a design/manufacturing background this is a disaster just like most of the new things Gibson keeps putting out.

    Visual diarrhea.

    Saying this is “arguably more refined than anything Gibson Guitars has ever produced” is an insult to the great designers that came up with the classic shapes. Just look at that chrome, it looks like it was cut by someone who has just been introduced to design/manufacturing/everything.

    ugh

    CRAP. JUST PLAIN CRAP. DUSK TIGER, DARK FIRE (DIM BULB) ROBOTIC TUNING, BELLS AND WHISTLES. “A FOOL AND HIS MONEY………” I WOULDN’T TAKE A FREE ONE. HENRY J NEEDS A HIGH COLONIC AND A 20 MILE HIKE. IMPROVE THE QUALITY ON YOUR OVER PRICED LINEUP AND QUIT FARTING AROUND WITH WHIZ-BANG, TOM SLICK, ROBOT GUITARS. HANK, GET THE PRICE OF YOUR STANDARDS DOWN WITH YOUR STUDIO LINE AND UP TO THE QUALITY OF EPIPHONE, AND MAYBE I”LL START SHOPPING FOR GIBSONS AGAIN!
