help!! music / guitar related fonts wanted
can anyone help me find a font similar to that of the GIBSON and or EPIPHONE logo?
any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys. :D
provide with links to images please or url of a site or something
call me ignorant, but i dont know the particular gibson and epiphone you are looking for.
Gibson is a logo not a font. Has been discussed a million times all over the web. Epiphone also looks like a logo. Apart from the 'n' the 'p' doesn't match with the 'h', the 'o' anf the 'e'. Not even mentioning the capital 'E'.
Well, Chris wanted something SIMILAR. But although I play guitar I couldn't afford a Gibson by now.
So if you are not showing a picture, Chris, I am no help here. But maybe in a week, when I'm back from holidays in Italy there is a sample here and then I'm trying to be a help. Promised.
Ciao for now. Take care and have fun.

i wouldnt be looking in website that offered fonts i was looking for a logo, right? what i'm looking for is a font, similar to that of how the letters on the gibson logo look like. just wanted to clear things up. :D
There seems to be a misunderstanding here. The Gibson logo was designed in the early years of the 20th century when type was available in lead - or not. Only a very few types were available in sizes fit for headings. So except for types that were used reguarly for news- and book-print and so most headers for other purposes were drawn by hand. Get a copy of a newspaper of those years and look at the advertisements. Tou will see that almost all 'fancy' headings and logos are hand drawn. Some of these are based on then existing types. Most are a free interpretation, specially logos.
Assuming that the Gibson logo was indeed based on an existing type the chances that tat type has ever been digitized are minimal as only the most common types of those years (owned by Monotype and Linotype, ...) were, when lead an photosetting faded out.
In short: If you insist to have a font that the Gibson logo is based on or that looks so similar that it could be used to (re)create the logo you might as well insist that the moon is a grapefruit. While everybody knows and is is very clear to see that it is a pancake.
Even shorter: There is no such thing around.
nothing close but has similar"feel"
this one is real close
What about MAGNETO, it´s DAMN close, there are 4 different types on here
