Is Gibson about to bring back its Victory Superstrat-style guitar from the ’80s, or did Cesar Gueikian just tease an entirely new model?

Cesar Gueikian has done it again. The Gibson CEO has a reputation for using his Instagram account to tease some of the brand’s upcoming guitars, having previously shown his followers advanced glimpses of the newly revived Gibson Les Paul Supreme, some potential Murphy Lab acoustics and Adam Jones’ Les Paul Custom.

He also has a history of sharing early previews of all-new electric guitars – case in point, that quirky model from August last year – and now Gueikian has seemingly showcased yet another Superstrat-style guitar that could be joining the brand’s lineup at some point in the future.
