Gibson Acoustic Songwriter Deluxe - Standard Vintage Sunburst

Built for writing songs!

With the Songwriter Deluxe Standard, Gibson took their already-popular small square-shoulder dreadnought body style and added a cutaway, making a very attractive, very playable guitar. The Songwriter Deluxe Standard is a great performance instrument with outstanding acoustic tone plus Fishman active electronics — it sounds great onstage and unplugged! The Songwriter Deluxe Standard's solid AA Sitka spruce top is set off by a solid rosewood body. A beautiful rosette and mother-of-pearl headstock crown contribute to the Songwriter Deluxe Standard's good looks.

Built for premium tone
The top is made from AA-grade Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from rosewood, giving the Songwriter a balanced, warm tone with clear lows and solid treble registers. Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument's sound projection. The bracing pattern inside the Songwriter Deluxe Standard is based on the design used for Gibson's celebrated Advanced Jumbo models of the 1930s, consisting of a wider "X" pattern that allows the top to vibrate more freely and push the sound toward the soundhole. The result is an instrument that delivers incredible response, and a superior dynamic range with balanced, warm tones, clear lows, and solid treble registers.

The fingerboard of Gibson's Songwriter Deluxe Standard is constructed from the highest grade ebony on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite.

Gibson's Songwriter Deluxe Standard comes equipped with a built-in Fishman Aura Pro, featuring Fishman's popular Aura Acoustic Imaging Technology. This ground-breaking pickup system reproduces the natural sound of the Songwriter Deluxe Standard as miked in a professional studio, and onstage, thus eliminating the complicated setups of expensive microphones. Auro Pro uses digital algorithms to create images of various microphones' captured sounds. Players can then blend these images with an acoustic guitar's pickup to produce an immediate and dramatic improvement in amplified sound. The Fishman Aura Pro's preamp includes a tuner, and is mounted on the bass side rim of the upper bout.

Grover's original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with abundant style and performance exactly suited for the Songwriter Deluxe Standard. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. The headstock is adorned with a crown logo. Gibson put the first crown peghead logo on an ES-300 back in 1940, and it has graced the headstocks of many legendary Gibson guitars ever since, including today's Songwriter Deluxe Standard. The pickguard on the Songwriter Deluxe Standard is a custom line design made from Tortec. As with all of Gibson's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand. The rosette on the Songwriter Deluxe Standard is one of Gibson's finest, with a double-ring rosette with an abalone-filled middle and both outer rings consisting of six-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the Songwriter line.
