A new generation of artists have arrived and Gibson – the iconic American guitar brand – has completed a new evolution in sound for acoustic guitar players, originally conceived in 1964. 

From the Gibson Lab, Gibson presents the new Gibson Generation Collection of Acoustic guitars. 

Inspired by a 1964 blueprint from the Gibson archives, and continuing Gibson’s iconic history of innovation, the Gibson Generation Collection offers a new sonic experience to HEAR MORE OF YOU, featuring balanced tone woods, and a slim comfortable neck at accessible price points. 

Handcrafted in Montana

The Gibson Generation Collection is handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana by the highly-skilled craftspeople who make all Gibson acoustic guitars. 

Comprised of four models, G-00, G-45, G-Writer and the G-200, the Generation Collection is equipped with the Gibson Player Port™ on the upper bout: an original 1964 Gibson concept refined today by the Gibson Lab. 

The Gibson Player Port delivers a truly unique and immersive sonic experience by projecting sound to the player.
