Seeking an entirely new electric that’s as hot a
performer as it is a looker? Rev up the Designer N-225 from Gibson USA, and
prepare for a wild ride. The Designer N-225 blends time-tested elements of
Gibson quality and performance with a new open-chambered body style, sweet and
a fully hot-rodded pickup selection, and a hip Vibrola
and wraps it in a fully customized look, accented by striking black hardware.
Dressed in a Vintage Gloss Nitrocellulose lacquer finish in Natural, the
Designer N-225 makes a massive visual statement, while offering a deceptive
tonal versatility that cuts it in whatever style of music you play. Hit the
high-output bridge humbucker in full-throttle mode for scorching lead tones, pop
the push-pull Tone Pot to switch to single coil for more twang and jangle, or
flip to the P-90 in the neck position for bluesy growl, enjoying unparalleled
Gibson feel and playability all the while. Whatever track you take it down, the
N-225 is a stunning new showstopper, with even more power hiding under the hood
than first meets the eye.
The new Designer N-225 begins with a solid
maple top and back, which has been chambered to reduce weight and improve
resonance and sustain, with minimalist segmented f-holes to enhance its stylish
modern look. The glued-in neck is also made from solid maple, and carved in a
fast, slim ’60s profile. A solid rosewood fingerboard carries 22 medium-jumbo
frets and striking block inlays, while the headstock displays the classic
split-diamond inlay, long the sign of a Custom guitar from Gibson. The maple in
the N-225 yields a tone that is sharp and bold, even through this hot pair of
pickups. The hardware set retains the customized feel, which a set of Grover™
tuners, a Tune-o-matic bridge, and a handy Vibrola tailpiece, all decked out in
a black anodized plating.
While its looks sets it out as something
entirely new, the N-225’s powerful and versatile pickup complement truly stands
it apart in the tone department. A fat Gibson P-90 pickup in the neck position
offers that blend of warmth and slightly gritty, detailed grind that has made
this single-coil a favorite of so many players since its arrival in the 1940s.
In the bridge position, a Seymour Duncan gives you scorching lead tones in full
humbucking mode, with the power to push your amp into crunchy rhythm or singing
sustain. A traditional three-way toggle switch and a master tone control
complete the package.
