At the heart of Gibson’s square-shoulder dreadnought line of acoustic guitars is the Songwriter series, and the Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC is its most fundamental offering in a distinct cutaway design. First introduced in 2003, the Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC combines Gibson’s time-honored bracing patterns of the 1930s with our original dreadnought shape, and it has gained worldwide acclaim over the past decade.

The body design of the Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC is known as a small dreadnought. The top is made from Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from rosewood, giving it a balanced, warm tone with clear lows and solid treble registers. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to acclimate it properly, are two of the most central procedures to Gibson’s guitar-building process. Beginning with its first catalog in 1903, Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with “the most durable, elastic, and sonorous qualities,” and today’s guitars from Gibson Acoustic are no different.

Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features scalloped and radiused top-bracing inside the body. By scalloping each brace, 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 Studio EC 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 Studio is constructed from rosewood. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, giving each single note and chord unparalleled bite and clarity. The Songwriter Deluxe Studio’s split parallelogram inlays are made of genuine mother-of-pearl and are placed into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also features a beveled edge for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the playability of the Songwriter Deluxe Studio.

The Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC from Gibson Acoustic comes equipped with the popular Prefix Plus-T acoustic pickup system from Fishman. Like the rest of Fishman’s Prefix onboard preamp family, the Prefix Plus-T features ultra-quiet electronics and individual controls for volume, bass, treble and semi-parametric contour. It also features a built-in chromatic tuner, a separate control for brilliance, and a phase switch and notch filter to help fight against unwanted feedback. The Plus-T’s unique controls let you adjust the sound for any number of playing styles, including fingerstyle and straight strumming. It can also be adjusted to emphasize extreme bass and treble for a “scooped” mids effect, or for cutting through the mix when you need to be heard. The Prefix Plus-T works with a standard 9V battery.

A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the soundhole and can be one of the most beautiful elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking ornamentations. The rosette on the Songwriter Deluxe Studio is one of Gibson’s finest. It is a double-ring rosette with an abalone-filled middle, with both outer rings consisting of six-ply binding, which ads a stylish, understated elegance to the Songwriter line.

The Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Studio includes a black hardshell case with plush-lined interior, owner's manual, Gibson's Gold Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
