The Gibson Shark Fin is finally showing its fin. Here is the picture of this new limited run series by Gibson USA (courtesy of Guitar Center).
So, it looks like an explorer with a round cutaway in the back and a reverse headstock. It is a light metallic gray finish. I see also two humbuckers (of course it's a Gibson) with no pickup cover. No pickguard, dot inlays and a simple pair of volume/tone knobs with the control switch in between. Classic stopbar tailpiece -no bigsby for this one (unlike the last run, the Les Paul florentine cut).
Good. The anonymous tips on my previous Gibson Shark Fin post were spot on. I had broke the news about this upcoming guitar back last month. Funny how the launch of this one has beek kept so secret when other limited run series guitars were announced months ahead.
