Gibson CEO James Curleigh chats to young Gibson artist, Tyler Morris. James talks about how he made a flying V when he was in high school. Gibson's presence at NAMM this year was nothing short of amazing. It's safe to say, they stole the show, especially after being a no-show at last year's NAMM. You can feel the difference the new team has made even in these early stages. The guitars are great, the vibe was amazing and the Gibson rooms at NAMM were just bursting at the seams. Gibson is BACK, Baby.....!!!
