Nissan and Gibson team up for NV200 Guitar Mobile Repair & Restoration Van

Nissan has joined forces with famous American guitar manufacturer Gibson for this special NV200 Mobile Repair & Restoration Van that will be presented next week at the New York Auto Show.

If you need a mobile repair guitar shop, you're in luck as this custom NV200 serves this purpose for both working musicians and casual strummers. Nissan and Gibson say this is suitable for servicing important music markets or locales where guitar players gather, like at music festivals, recording studios and concerts.

It's powered by an inline-four, 2.0-liter engine rated at 131 HP (96 kW) linked to an Xtronic CVT allowing the van to return 24 mpg US (28.8 mpg UK or 9.8 liters / 100 km) in the combined cycle. It offers 122.7 cubic feet of cargo space and a 53-inch cargo height, while the rear doors have a 40/60 split opening. The van has a 1,500-pound payload capacity and a load floor height of 19.5 inches.

Behind the seats there's a custom rack which can accommodate up to four guitars, while the audio system is provided by Onkyo. It also features a pullout bench with various tools like fret files, scale rulers, calipers, super glue, different types of sandpaper, wood glue, radius planer, tuning forks, screwdrivers, soldering station, pliers and several guitar parts.

Full details are available in the attached press release.
