Since the introduction of the Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC in 2003 it's gone on to become a modern classic acoustic guitar. It's got the crisp and powerful tone you'd expect of a Gibson dreadnought guitar, and a distinctive cutaway design that adds a modern touch to the traditional 1930s bracing patterns.
Gibson's Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC electro-acoustic comes in a small dreadnought square shoulder body style, and is fitted with Fishman's popular Prefix Plus-T acoustic pickup system as standard for outstanding plugged-in tone.
The onboard ultra-quiet Fishman pre-amp lets you achieve the perfect sound, whatever your playing style. Of course, you can adjust volume, bass and treble. But there's also separate controls for brilliance, and a phase switch / notch filter to help fight against unwanted feedback.
One of the stand-out features of this Gibson acoustic guitar is the rosette around the soundhole. The rosette is often said to be one of the most beautiful, subtle and complicated woodworking ornamentations on any guitar, and the Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC features one of Gibson's finest.
The inclusion of Rotomatic tuners means you can tune with incredible precision and stability, with additional features like a countersunk tension screw that lets you regulate the tuning tension to any degree.
Much of this Gibson dreadnought's tone (balanced and warm with clear lows and solid treble) comes from the superior tonewoods used in its construction, with the top made from Sitka soruce and back/sides built from rosewood. Since it was founded, selecting and nurturing the right wood has been one of the key things that sets real Gibson guitars aside from the rest.
