When you’re unwilling to compromise your art, you need an uncompromising instrument to accompany you. Crafted by the acclaimed luthiers of Gibson’s acoustic guitar facility in Bozeman, Montana, the new Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Standard blends the artistry of the great pre-War flat-tops with the playability and versatility of the finest acoustic guitars of the 21st century. In short, it’s a guitar to take you to the top, and keep you there.
Crafted in the image of Gibson’s great big-bodied, square-shouldered dreadnoughts—with a 25.5” scale length to help it all ring bold and true—the Songwriter Deluxe Standard is made from a solid Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, and a one-piece quarter-sawn mahogany neck with 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard. But the implementation of choice tonewoods doesn’t end there: rather than load down the instrument’s superb resonance with excessive plastics, Gibson applies natural maple binding to the body’s top and back, while also binding the fingerboard and headstock in maple.
Further enhancing the guitar’s tonal splendor are details such as its ebony bridge with bone saddle, bone nut, 1930s advanced X-brace constructed of scalloped Adirondack red spruce braces, the use of hot hide glue (employed in the construction of countless great vintage acoustics), and thin hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
