Modern Classics, improved
Delivering quality craftsmanship and classic style, Gibson guitars will always be of the best in the world. Yet, the same technological developments that constantly change and revolutionize the audio industry are also impacting the needs and wishes of modern musicians: Gibson knows this. With the release of the Modern Classic line, Gibson gives a nod to the modern guitarist - the guitarist who needs onboard electronics, cutaways to reach the uppermost frets, modified neck profiles, and setups that allow playability - no matter the style of playing. With these features in mind, Gibson redesigned the entire Modern Classic line to give us premium, handcrafted guitars that play easier, intonate better, sound great plugged in, and stay in tune even better than before. These guitars feature the latest design advancements, including radiused, or rolled fingerboard edges, giving you a fast, comfortable feel. And, with string height lower at the nut, these guitars will also play even easier and intonate better all the way up the neck. Final Gibson touches, including new soundhole labels, sturdy Grover tuners, and premium Fishman pickups, make it easy for you to take your favorite traditional-style Gibson acoustic onto the modern stage with confidence!
All Modern Classic guitars are handcrafted by Gibson in Bozeman, MT, from premium tonewoods and components. The Traveling Songwriter Modern Classic is no exception, producing fine tone with its solid Sitka spruce top, and mahogany back, and sides. A rounded mahogany neck and cutaway design makes playing more comfortable, and allows you easier access to the higher frets. Gibson added a stylish tortoise pickguard, and mother of pearl dot inlays along the rosewood fingerboard, making this durable guitar a true beauty to take on the road!

Gibson: Don't Mess with a Good Thing
Gibson guitars have been around for well over a century. When guitarists are looking for an outstanding combination of superb tone and playability along with great looks and gorgeous finishes, the choice for most of those 100 plus years has been Gibson. From their amazing collection of fine acoustics to the electric guitars that literally rewrote music history, Gibson guitars have been on almost every chart-topping album from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream and Led Zeppelin. These "first call" instruments also cross an enormous array of diverse styles, from folk and country to blues and hard rock. With that resume, it's not surprising that so many of Gibson's best-selling instruments have changed little over the decades. Because there's just no sense in messing with a good thing!
