Our friends down under at Gaskell Guitars have been quiet for a while, but we’ve recently heard some interesting news from the left handed exclusive Aussie brand. Namely the discontinuation of a few models and the introduction of three brand new guitars!
So we’ve lost a few, but we’ve also gained some cool new models. Read on to find out which models will be going the way of the dodo and also find out a few details about the new guitars.
From July Gaskell will discontinue production of the Ice-Axe, Brumby and Viking Bass. So if you had been debating picking one of these up now is your last chance! It’s a shame that these exotic shape guitars had to bite the dust, but there’s also some good news…
New Left Handed Guitars
I’d always been disappointed that Gaskell discontinued their Flying V model, but the good news is that it’s making a comeback! The Flying V will return alongside a humbucker equipped version of the AllRounder and a new version of the Concord complete with a Floyd Rose tremolo.
In other news, all humbuckers equipped guitars will now come with Gaskell’s very own branded pickups installed. These will also be available to purchase separately for $60 Australian per set plus shipping.
