Gibson Announces the Special Edition Ralph Macchio Crossroads Electric Guitar


Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Gibson is proud to announce the creation of the Ralph Macchio Crossroads Special Edition electric guitar.

According to product specialist Billy Nerfkin, Gibson approached Mr. Macchio in the Spring of 2010 about honoring the landmark cinematic phenomenon that is Crossroads. "Ralph was super psyched about the project and, though none of the guitars played in the film were manufactured by Gibson, Ralph was finally convinced that Gibson was the one company truly capable of capturing the intellectual depth and emotional nuance of Crossroads and crystallizing that vision in guitar form."
