Description: 

The Gibson MIII Standard H is a double-cutaway un-Gibson-like guitar introduced in 1991. It features a reversed Explorer headstock and as opposed to the Gibson MIII Standard came with an HH pickup configuration with a Gibson 500T and the Gibson 496R humbucker. It also didn't come with a tortoise shell. The set-in neck with a slim-taper profile joined the body at the 22nd fret, making the upper frets very accessible. The tremolo was a Gibson branded Schaller licensed Floyd Rose. The tuners were also made by Schaller. The Gibson MIII H standard  came in the colours translucent red and translucent amber. Because of the different pickup configurations, the switching system is different than on the Gibson MIII standard. The tone knob here functions as a coil split.
