Gibson Invader Electric Guitars were produced between 1983 and 1988 and at the present are a great find for collectors of vintage Gibson guitars.

Yet vintage Invader guitars still have the trademark Gibson sound and quality, so often you can find vintage Gibson Invader electric guitars that will perform beautifully for a lower price than other vintage Gibson guitars. With humbucker pickups and an ebony fretboard, Gibson Invader electric guitars provide a solid, versatile sound that will appeal to many guitarists, though the overall sound quality is geared a bit more towards blues guitarists.
