From the creative minds that brought you one of our most popular models ever, the Songwriter Deluxe, this week I bring you the Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC ("EC" stands for "Electric Cutaway"). Made with the same high quality woods and standards that you come to expect from the Gibson Acoustic facility in beautiful Bozeman, Montana, the SW Dlx. Studio EC boasts an impressive body made out of premium Indian rosewood coupled with an AAA Sitka spruce top. The neck is constructed from Honduras mahogany with a coal black ebony fret board and bridge.
The inlay package is equally as gorgeous without being gaudy with its Mother-of-pearl fret board parallelograms (like the Hummingbird), its Mother-of-pearl logo and crown inlay in the head stock, wrapping it up nicely with an abalone rosette ring. The thin, single white, binding around the fret board accents the look completely. Add all this with an on-board electronics package (a Fishman Prefix-T) so you can adjust your sounds without having to change your settings on your amplifier.
Oh, and did I mention it is a CUTAWAY? Now those notes you couldn't reach before, without having to manipulate your fretting hand in a weird position, are easily accessible. Also, don't forget, it is still a Songwriter Deluxe, no matter how you slice it, so you still have the sturdy square shoulder dreadnought with the Gibson x-braced top all hand crafted by our talented luthiers in Montana.
So if you are a little bit country and a little bit rock n' roll, please don't hesitate to experience that feeling that only a Gibson can provide, and pick up a Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC at your nearest authorized Gibson Acoustic dealer or online at one of our authorized web-dealers.
