This Gibson Acoustic Features G-Force Tuners!

Put the future of acoustic guitars in your hands with the Gibson Acoustic Songwriter Progressive acoustic-electric guitar. This spruce-topped and rosewood-backed Songwriter Cutaway acoustic guitar houses some of the latest innovations from Gibson. The bridge sports titanium Tune-O-Matic saddles for precise string action and intonation. And Gibson's G-Force tuning system lets you tune up and explore alternate tunings with the push of a button and a strum of your strings. Get a modern instrument that can handle your entire acoustic gig with the Gibson Acoustic Songwriter Progressive acoustic-electric guitar.

Gibson Acoustic Songwriter Progressive at a Glance:
  • Built for premium tone
  • Exceptionally smooth playability
  • G-Force automatic tuning system delivers perfect intonation - and more
  • Get spot-on acoustic tones with the Lyric pressure zone microphone system
Built for premium tone

Rich, detailed overtones abound from the Songwriter Progressive's solid rosewood back and sides, and they look fantastic. What's more, the Songwriter Studio is topped with solid Sitka spruce, adding rich and mellow accents to your sound. When you imagine what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like, this is it! Gibson even incorporated traditional scalloped "X" bracing, further enhancing your tone and volume.

Exceptionally smooth playability

The Songwriter Progressive has a comfortable neck profile that feels at home in your hand whether you're playing chords or single-note lines. As you play your way up the Richlite fretboard, you'll definitely appreciate the smooth feel of the rolled fingerboard edges. With a neck that plays this smooth, and with the added convenience of a cutaway, you'll be able to play longer with less fatigue.

G-Force automatic tuning system delivers perfect intonation - and more

Thanks to Gibson's updated G-Force tuning system, not only can you tune your Gibson Acoustic Songwriter Progressive guitar with a single strum, but you can also make use of alternate tunings without having to retune or switch guitars. You can also calibrate your guitar to an external source. Say you have a vintage piano that's not quite tuned to A440. Now, thanks to G-Force, the piano and your guitar can play together beautifully with no tuning hassles.

Get spot-on acoustic tones with the Lyric pressure zone microphone system

When you're ready to plug in and perform, you'll be glad the Gibson Acoustic Songwriter Progressive is equipped with the LR Baggs Lyric pressure zone microphone system. The next step in LR Baggs's Tru Mic technology, the Lyric microphone introduces several new patented technologies, including a unique noise-cancellation system that eliminates the boxiness associated with under-saddle acoustic guitar mics, while conveying the sweet highs and powerful low end you'd expect from an external microphone. Lots of Sweetwater employees are gigging guitarists, and any of them will confirm you'll be amazed at the sound of this innovative mic system.

  • A gig-ready guitar with progressive appointments
  • Gibson's G-Force tuning system lets you switch tunings with the press of a button

Gibson songwriter progressive cutaway electric acoustic

This guitar is the most gorgeous thing I've ever laid my hands on. The whole thing is a sweet spot, every note and chord resonates magically regardless of its position on the fret board. The guitar has a slim body yet the bass tones make it sound twice as big as it is. The highs are elegantly bright and the mids are strong and supportive. Aestheticly it is flawless, trademark to Gibson, and worth the price tag. The g-force tuner takes some getting used to but is a cool luxury.
