In 1958, Gibson produced two new designs: the eccentrically shaped Explorer and Flying V.

(formerly Gibson Guitar Corp.) is an American manufacturer of guitars, other musical instruments, and consumer and professional electronics now based in Nashville, Tennessee. Gibson invented archtop guitars by constructing the same type of carved, arched tops used on violins.

The company was formerly known as Gibson Guitar Corp. By the 1930s, the company was also making flattop acoustic guitars, as well as one of the first commercially available hollow-body electric guitars, used and popularized by Charlie Christian.

The company (Gibson) was within three months of going out of business before it was bought by Henry E. In 2011, Gibson acquired the Stanton Group, including Cerwin Vega, KRK Systems and Stanton DJ.

Gibson then formed a new division, Gibson Pro Audio, which will deliver professional grade audio items, including headphones, loudspeakers and DJ equipment.

In October 2017 Gibson announced Gibson brands is set to relocate its Memphis operations to a smaller location and plans to sell the massive facility that it currently calls home.

The Nashville-based guitar maker opened the Memphis facility 18 years ago, which currently occupies just a portion of a massive 127,620 square foot complex.

Norlin Musical Instruments was a member of Norlin Industries which was named for ECL president Norton Stevens and CMI president Arnold Berlin.

This began an era characterized by corporate mismanagement and decreasing product quality.

Since its opening, the Gibson Memphis shop has mostly focused on building hollow and semi-hollowbody guitars, such as the famed ES series.
