    Classic looks, powerful sound . . . a replica of Sheryl's prized '62 Gibson Country Western!

    The Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a body similar to Gibson's J-45 slope-shoulder dreadnought, but with wider, square-shoulder accents on the upper bout. The radius top projects a full, balanced expression, with blended dark lows and brilliant highs.

    In 1999, Sheryl Crow brought her beloved 1962 Gibson Country Western to Gibson Acoustic and asked for an identical replica with modern appointments, worried that her favorite acoustic would soon succumb to the rigors of the road. Gibson responded in kind with the introduction of the new Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series guitar—essentially a painstaking recreation of Crow's Country Western, but also a variation of Gibson's renowned Hummingbird.

    Nickel Gotoh White Oval Button Tuner
    Gibson's Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series features Gotoh's white oval button tuners. With a gear ratio of 15:1, these Gotoh tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage, with a special lubricant inside the gear box for smooth and accurate tuning stability.

    Gibson Crown Peghead Logo
    Gibson put the first crown peghead logo on an ES-300 back in 1940, and it has graced the headstocks of many legendary Gibson guitars ever since, including today's Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series. Over the years, it has also been called a "thistle" because of the group of flowering plants with the sharp prickles, though Gibson has preferred to call it a "crown."

    Gibson Pickguard

    The yellow tortoise pickguard on the Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series is patterned after the shape of the pickguard on Gibson's Hummingbird. As with all Gibson's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, binding, and engraving are done by hand.

    Rosette
    A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the soundhole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series features a double-ring rosette, with the main ring consisting of seven-ply binding, and the second ring three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the Sheryl Crow Signature guitar.

    Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Split Parallelogram Inlays
    The fingerboard of Gibson's Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series is constructed from the highest-grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The Sheryl Crow's split parallelogram inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports a rolled edge—instead of the usual right angle where the fingerboard surface meets the neck. Gibson Acoustic's rolled edges are slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the playability of the Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series.

    Body Tonewoods (back, sides and top)
    The body of the Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series is similar to Gibson's J-45 slope shoulder dreadnought design, but with wider, square shoulder accents on the upper bouts. The top is made from AAA-grade Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from mahogany. This gives the guitar a full, balanced expression, with blended dark lows and brilliant highs, making it a desirable acoustic to a wide range of players and musical styles.

    L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System
    Gibson Acoustic's Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series comes equipped with the popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System from L.R. Baggs, which features a low-profile undersaddle element—or transducer—that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp featuring an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element delivers performance not previously attainable from an undersaddle pickup. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar, and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."

    Bracing
    Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument's sound projection. The bracing inside the body of the Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series is a single "X" pattern similar to the design used inside Gibson's traditional dreadnoughts, most notably the vintage J-30s. This bracing pattern delivers a full, balanced expression, with blended dark lows and brilliant highs, making the Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series a desirable acoustic-electric guitar to a wide range of players and musical styles.

    Great guitar

    By Wil Tyree

    from ohio

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Just a great guitar from build to sound. Great guitar to sing with. It is a keeper.
    I traded a Martin 28 for this guitar and have never looked back. This guitar has a well rounded warm sound that can not be beat. I loved the Martin for bluegrass work, but for individual singing I don't think you can beat a Gibson for the mellow sound and warmth that this guitar gives you. I can't put it down, it makes me want to sing more! The electronics that it is equipped with is super, and come in handy when you are doing stage work. I can see why Sheryl Crow fell in love with this guitar.
    Fit and finish on this guitar is fantastic. Tuners are a little lame but work well. Wood used are A-1.
    If you can pick one of these used, grab it!

    Gibson Sheryl Crow is meant for singer-songwriters

    By sal arnuk

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is my favorite guitar for me-time alone in my office. The spruce/hog/bracing on this guitar makes it very very balanced. I have owned 7 different Martins (some of them very high end), and still lown a Martin D-15M, and the Sheryl Crow and the D-15m are the best guitars I have ever owned. While a D-18, and especially a D-28, is good for bluegrass, fast flat picking, and jamming, the Sheryl Crow is for singers.

    When you play the Sheryl Crow you hear a chord, or a throaty accompanyment that harmonizes with your voice, as opposed to hearing individual notes. I don't think this makes sense, but it does to me! The guitar is throaty, raw, mellow, and just a great singer songwriter guitar.

    I am not crazy about the tuners though, and one day I may change them out.

    07 Sheryl Crow

    By Tantrum68

    from Nunya,Biz.

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've owned my Sheryl Crow Sig. Gibson Country Western acoustic since new and it's just a great all around guitar. I've played it out acoustically and straight through the PA at church and never had a problem with it. It's voiced well and harmonizes with my voice great. The Fishman electronics sound just like the natural voice of the guitar. Interesting that the hand-signed tag in the guitar doesn't match other signatured stuff by Sheryl Crow but I really wanted a new SJN Country Western with a pickup and I got it.Nice yellowing on the binding. Good flatpick and finger pick guitar. Highly recommended.

    As good as it gets

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is not the fanciest guitar Gibson makes but the sound is incredible. I traded in my Marting DG16 GT for this and what a huge difference in tone, esspecially the bottom end and sustain. It is also brighter and frankly made the Martin sound "dead". Gibson isn't the greatest company to do business with but they still make one hec of a quality product. This has just become my main acoustic guitar(I have 4 more). Bottom line is I would buy it again.

    Outstanding in all tonal aspects!

    By rneiL

    from los angeles

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    What I'm about to write now about this acoustic will not do justice in how exceptional this guitar truly is. I've played all the higher end guitars out there that you can possibly think of, but in my opinion, nothing will match the tonal and visual qualities of this guitar. Let me put it this way...All the Gibson Hummingbirds are by far the only acoustics out there that are able to produce true, full, rich tones...the way all acoustics are supposed to sound. This will blow any martin away as far rhythm, fingerpicking, or fingerstyle type playing. If you've got $2,000 to spend, trust me!, invest in a gibson; you will not be disappointed!

    wonderful guitar with cheap tuners

    By Bobmon54

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a great guitar in all areas but the tuners are not up to a 2 thousand dollar guitar. I have 7 Gibsons and the tuners on the sheryl crow are the worst. They could've improved that. The finish is a great yellowing of the binding and cherry type finish and that great pickguard make it very distictive- For a Gibson it sounds almost like a Martin d-28

    A Peeps Best Friend

    By DIF

    from Aurora, CO

    Comments about Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    What can I say about my Sheri. I have many other acoustics both more expensive, and less, but when on stage its my Sheryl Sig that is up there with me. Mostly becuase of the fact of the built in pickup. When plugged in it is the most acurate sounding of my guitars. I own a '69, and a '68 Country Western. You can not duplicate the sound of 40 year old laquer, but the Sheryl Sig comes close, whats better is I know that in 15 or 20 years this reissue will sound better than the originals due to the more advanced scalloping of the internal braces. Yes the one draw back is the tuners, but remember they are duplicating Sheryls original, and thats what the ladies guitar was equipped with.The most telling thing you can say about this instrument is that Sheryl does not take her original with her on Tour. Rather she and her band bring along about ten of the Signature models. Sheryl has three she plays herself including one tricked out with her name in Mother of Pearl inlayed along the fret board. The other two are straight off the rack Sheryl Sigs. Both Peter Stroud, (Long, Tall, and Proud), her lead player, and Tim Smith (The Mayor of Rock n Roll) her right hand man utility guitarist, both play their own Sheryl Sigs, during concerts as individual songs require. You can't find a more versitile instrument to have on stage with you. Good looks, great sound, nothing to flashy, nor too drab. And after all its a Gibson Country Western!!!!!DIF
