Gibson launches Spanish-friendly website
(john Gorbe | Posted 2011-03-28)
Not many guitar companies have dedicated websites for different languages. In fact, this is the first time I heard of this being done. This makes a lot of sense though, especially for Gibson, which is one of the largest guitar companies in the world.
Gibson is proud to announce that they will have a new dedicated site for their Spanish speaking fans at Gibsonguitar.es. The site will be a one-stop resource for the latest in music news and features, events, exclusive interviews, music videos, guitar lessons and other information related to Gibson instruments and artists.
Gibsonguitar.es has been fully customized with features appealing to the Spanish-speaking community, including product pages describing all the features and specifications for Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer guitars, among other products, gear and accessories. Fans can get all the information they need, all in Spanish.
The website already contains exclusive interviews with a variety of Latin and international stars including the Puerto Rican and Latin Award-winning singer-songwriter Kany Garcia, legendary guitarist Manuel Cabezali, songwriter/producer Tommy Torres and Pablo Hurtado – guitarist for the acclaimed Mexican band, Camila.
The Gibson Guitar Corporation is based out of Nashville, Tennessee and manufactures other instruments as well including Epiphone, Baldwin, Steinberger, Tobias, Valley Arts, Singerland, Kramer, Wurlitzer, Kalamazoo, and Maestro. They’re most well known for their solid-body guitar model: the Les Paul.
There's no doubt you heard Gibson in the hands of some of the finest players in the world. Some of Gibson's artists include Rik Emmett, Slash, Angus Young, Duane Allman, Jimmy Page, Ace Frehley, Zakk Wylde, Randy Rhoads, Joe Perry, Pete Townshed, Mike Bloomfield, and the man himself - Les Paul.
With a history dating back to the late 18th century, Gibson is also staying updated utilizing forward thinking technology in such guitars as the Firebird X, Robot, and the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited.
