The HP 415 W offers an innovative, slimmer, round shoulder cutaway guitar with all the traditional build techniques that go into each Gibson Acoustic.

Hand built in Montana using all North American Tonewoods with Gibson's authentic original build techniques, the new HP 415W offers the player a slightly slimmer 4" body depth, but without any compromise in tone. A solid Sitka spruce top, traditionally braced with hand scalloped braces, is joined with beautiful, walnut back and sides providing a strong and balanced tonal range with superior clarity between each string. The newly designed body depth adds comfort and responds wonderfully to all the nuances of different playing styles.

The flatter fingerboard radius allows for easy string bending anywhere on the neck. Gibson took this one step further, by designing and engineering a brand new neck profile- The Advanced Response Neck, unleashing your full potential as a player. Dense Walnut is used for the fingerboard and bridge and Mother-of-pearl dots detail the position markers. A Tusq nut and saddle provide consistent tone, string balance as well as precise string spacing. A brand new High Performance shape tortoise pickguard finishes the HP 415 W while Grover Mini Nickel tuners crown the peghead.

An LR Baggs Element pickup system allows for easy plug and play anywhere you perform. Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard's actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick picks up the guitar's most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses "quack" caused by compression and unlocks the Element's unrivaled dynamic range. The pickup's minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.

Hand built in Montana using all North American Tonewoods with Gibson's authentic original build techniques.

Best Uses

  • Home use for me and eventually the masses...

Standard Gibson quality. Great resonance and midrange. I am a novice with flashes of intermidiate skill level and this instrument is very forgiving as it has great action. Had my share of beaters and pawn shop guitars and this guitar is worth every cent. Got full credit on another guitar I traded in which made it so much nicer! Thanks Sam Ash!
