Guitar brand Gibson has announced new creative collaboration agreements with boutique guitar makers.

The classic guitar maker has entered into multi-year collaboration agreements with Jimmy Wallace Guitars, Banker Custom Guitars and Echopark Guitars.

The deal also will see Gibson help amplify their partners’ pursuit for craftmanship through Gibson channels and events.
