Tuning Keys
The headstock of the Brad Paisley Model carries six vintage-style, open-back nickel tuners with cream buttons, as seen on classic pre-War Gibson flat-tops like the 1942 J-45 Legend Model. Tuning Keys
Bridge
A traditional belly-up pin bridge made from rosewood offers firm string anchoring and outstanding vibrational coupling with the body, while a one-piece bone saddle helps to keep the tone resonant and clear. Bridge

Pickup and Electronics
The Brad Paisley Model comes equipped with a Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and preamp system with endpin jack and sound-hole-mounted controls. This unparalleled system allows the blending of the guitar’s under-saddle piezo pickup with one of four digital sound images that match the instrument’s own tonal characteristics. In addition, the preamp includes controls for volume, phase, anti-feedback, and a two-position low frequency tone-shaping switch. Put it all together, and it’s a brave new world in electro-acoustic pickup and preamp technology.

Strings
Gibson’s Light Gauge phosphor-bronze acoustic strings, sizes .011-.052, are installed at the factory.
