Truly custom and truly CME, our relationship with Gibson Custom Shop reflects a shared philosophy—individually crafted guitars, built by hand. Before each new batch goes into production, CME’s guitar gurus join forces with Gibson to select new top woods, finishes, fingerboard materials, neck profiles, pickups, hardware—you name it—all that goes into each CME-designed Custom Shop model. That means no automated decision-making. No passing the buck. It’s the old way. The slow way. The hard way. It’s the Gibson Custom Shop way, and when it comes to Gibson Custom Shop guitars it’s the Chicago Music Exchange way.
