Gibson have announced some exciting new models including the rather cool looking (well to me ) Nashville Flood Anniversary Les Paul Studio:
…Gibson USA division will also be showcasing other new models the SG Special ’60s Tribute. This guitar commemorates the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the SG with a cool yet affordable tribute model that incorporates all of the nuances and features that made the SG an immediate hit. The Nashville Flood Anniversary Les Paul Studio Blue and Green, Explorer Melody Maker, Flying V 7-String, Les Paul Oversized Bass, Paul Landers Signature Les Paul, and the Les Paul and SG Gothic Mortes, and other exciting additions from Gibson USA will also highlight the booth.
Gibson Custom will continue its history of presenting the world’s most collectible guitars at Musikmesse 2011. Guests will be among the first to see the exclusive Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess, a guitar which commemorates Lifeson’s work with Rush from the ’70s to today and hisredefining of the boundaries of progressive rock guitar.
The Randy Rhoads Les Paul Custom, the Don Felder Doubleneck and Les Paul Signature models, SG Custom Reissue, ES-355 Figured Stopbar, and other historic models from Gibson Custom will also be showcased at the booth.
Also new for Gibson Custom is the Marc Bolan Signature Les Paul, a guitar based on the iconic Les Paul Model Guitar that accompanied Marc’s all too short but very influential career. Limited to 100 aged and 350 ‘VOS’ finished versions globally, the chance to see, hear and feel this special instrument is at this year’s Musikmesse.
Schecter announces new ‘sedate’ Synyster Gates signature models:
The idea behind the new $YN model was to build a guitar that was not TOO branded. When we set out to do this, Brian said ‘as much as I love Dime, I would never play that guitar on stage’ so the new SPECIAL delivers $YN’s look, playability and SOUND without the overly recognizable ‘pimp-stripes.’ Rest assured, he will still be rocking his striped Customs AND there will be a Special Edition Custom available before the Holidays with a new color scheme. The new ‘DELUXE’ version is to the Special, as the ‘Standard’ is to the Custom. It is more affordable… bolt-on, FR Special trem, Seymour Duncan Designed Detonators, rosewood fingerboard, etc …. $869 MSRP. Deluxe specs up tomorrow.

These highly affordable instruments were characterised by high-quality hardware and a superb solid wood body.
Since that time Yamaha has gone on to introduce a wide range of Pacifica variations many of which have since received international awards and as a result of this relentless pursuit of quality the Pacifica is one of the world’s most popular guitar brands.
The Pacifica story continues to evolve and innovate with the introduction of four new models at this years’ Frankfurt Musikmesse – The Pacifica 611HFM, 510V, 311H and 120H.
