9.6 of 10 Condition (Some light, superficial scratching on back, 1 small finish chip on heel)
Crafted for Maximum Resonance, this Gibson Songwriter Deluxe is designed from the ground up to provide resonant tone. Constructed with a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides, this particular Songwriter features an Advanced-X bracing pattern with a wider X brace than most current models. This creates a more open area under the bridge which warms up the midrange and helps boost the volume.
The resonance continues through the guitar's neck, joined to the body in the old-fashioned method using a dovetail joint and hide glue. This makes for a more cohesive joint than bolt-on necks, allowing the neck to better resonate with the body.
Fishman Electronics Accurately Amplify Warm Tone
Equipped with a Fishman Prefix Plus-T electronics system, the Songwriter Deluxe can reach large audiences without sacrificing its warm sound. You can tweak your electronic tone with the bass, contour, treble, and brilliance EQ controls and fight feedback with the notch filter and phase switch. An onboard tuner with LED display makes staying in tune simple.
Aesthetic upgrades abound on the Songwriter Deluxe. Appointments like the custom pickguard, double-ring rosette, and dual-parallelogram fretboard inlays will catch your eye, but there are other features your ears and hands will appreciate. The guitar's cutaway meets the neck at the 17th fret, giving the player plenty of access to higher notes and the fretboard's beveled edge makes for a smooth playing experience.
