A First-Class Acoustic with Legendary Roots Songwriter Mahogany
Following in the tradition of Gibson's popular Songwriter series, the Songwriter Mahogany model, exclusive to Musician's Friend, boasts a pedigree that will make other acoustic guitars envious, as well as world-class construction from the acclaimed luthiers at Gibson Acoustic's facility in Bozeman, Montana. The Songwriter Mahogany is crafted with premium tonewoods and vintage-certified details to make it a proud heir to this storied series. From tone, to playing feel, to appearance, this is a first-class dreadnought, and the perfect choice for anyone from the singer-songwriter to the rock, pop, blues, folk or country performer.
In addition to a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped spruce braces in a 1930s “advanced-X" pattern, the Songwriter Mahogany has solid mahogany back and sides with a decorative marquetry strip inlaid in the back. Its one-piece mahogany neck has a rounded profile that is extremely comfortable in the hand, and an ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dot inlays. The guitar's 25.5" scale length gives it a bold, deep voice and an extremely firm low end on par with the greatest dreadnoughts of old, perfect for booming out rhythm chords or projecting subtler fingerstyle performances. A 14th fret neck/body joint helps you reach those high notes with ease, and the traditional Gibson 12-inch fingerboard radius contributes to smooth fretting and easy bending.
Performance ready, the Songwriter Mahogany comes equipped with a Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend pickup system, perfect for running the full, accurate acoustic tone of this premium instrument to your amp or PA of choice. A traditional belly-up bridge made from solid ebony offers enhanced resonance and sustain, while gold Grover Rotomatic tuners provide an elegant touch up top. All these features are enhanced with a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer available with an Antique Natural or Vintage Sunburst finish.
Each guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case with blue plush-lined interior, an owner's manual, and Gibson's Gold Warranty, along with Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
