Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides

The acoustic has a top made from sitka spruce to deliver a rich mellow tone with a broad dynamic range that accommodates any playing style. The top provides crisp, immediate articulation with a fundamental tonality to give the guitars sound plenty of power that’s direct. The Back and sides are crafted from rosewood to give the guitar a strong, clear presence of tone for a sparkling, sizzling sound. The wood is known to provide a scooped midrange, allowing for strong, pronounced low overtones to be produced to create a dark and complex tone. The rosewood and spruce complement each other to allow the Gibson to retain its clarity, no matter how hard the strings ae hit and offer the classic acoustic sound.

L.G. Baggs Lyric Electronics

Gibson’s Songwriter Cutaway features L.R. Bagg’s popular Element Active System which uses a low-profile undersaddle pickup connected to an onboard class A endpin preamp and a soundhole mounted control panel. The Element Session runs off a 9-volt battery that’s housed in L.R Bagg’s battery bag to keep it secure to prevent any tonal loss. Each component is securely hidden away and designed to ensure the guitar’s tone and projection remains pure. The Element electronics offer an incredible dynamic range that deliver a robust, lively, natural acoustic sound thanks to the sensitivity of the pickup.

G Force Auto-Tuning System

The G-Force is an innovative auto-tuning system that works by a mechanical device secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings, tuning to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.

Ornate Details

As well as delivering the perfect voice, the Songwriter Cutaway Progressive features a beautiful collection of ornate details that boast high quality craftsmanship. Its stunning Autumn Burst finish is hand sprayed for a truly unique appearance, as well as a smooth hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard that maximises wood vibrancy.This stunning fingerboard is also decorated in classic mother of pearl blocks, that tie into the headstock design
