Triumph Bonneville T120 Gibson edition

Gibson tunes up with Triumph

One-off bike and guitar offered as DGR prize

Gibson guitars and Triumph motorcycles have unveiled one-off models that celebrate the link between musical and motorcycle rockers.

The 1959 Legends Custom Edition Gibson Les Paul comes with Triumph design details, while Triumph has unveiled a 1959 Legends Custom Edition T120 Bonneville with Gibson design references.

The guitar has a hand-coach-lined pickguard inspired by the Bonneville’s trademark engine fins, and etched pick-up covers, branded truss rod cover and reissue switch backplate.

Gibson’s Triumph tribute

Triumph’s Bonneville T120 Gibson tribute features a hand-painted sunburst paint scheme like the Gibson with black painted guitar neck and headstock shape, edged with hand-painted coach lining, plus a host of branded touches.

The one-off models will be prizes for the best fundraisers at this year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, a global charity for men’s mental health and prostate cancer awareness and fundraising.

The collaboration makes a lot of sense as many old rockers love their Bonnevilles and probably suffer from prostate issues!

And late last year Triumph Motorcycles announced it will continue its nine-year association with DGR for five more years.

While these are only one-off models for the DGR, I wonder if Gibson and Triumph will offer these as limited-edition models.

As an old rocker myself, I’d certainly love to own one of each!
