Legendary Gibson quality and tone.
The Songmaker Quilt Series Grand Concert (CQM) from Gibson Acoustic faithfully delivers the excellent projection and superb note-to-note clarity expected from this classic, and versatile, body design, while closely adhering to the Gibson legacy of excellence. The CQM guitar combines the features of a number of Gibson's legendary acoustics with the modern appointments most sought by today's players, including affordability.
Every Songmaker guitar made by Gibson Acoustic features hand-scalloped top bracing inside the body, which is lighter and allows the top more freedom of movement to project sound. Hand-scalloped top bracing is a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. But at Gibson Acoustic, every acoustic features this type of bracing. 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 beyond imagination.
Ebony Fingerboard with Genuine Pearl Dot Inlays
The fingerboard of the Songmaker CQM is constructed from premium ebony. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The Songmaker CQM's classic dot 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. These two features ensure that each Gibson Songmaker CQM has an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the overall playability of each guitar.
Chrome Gibson Tuners
The Songmaker CQM comes fitted with genuine Gibson tuners with Schaller-style knobs. With a gear ratio of 16:1, these Gibson 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, and providing smooth and accurate tuning stability with the style and performance exactly suited for the Songmaker CQM.
Traditional Gibson Pickguard
The tortoise pickguard on the Songmaker CQM is a traditional design first utilized on the legendary L-00s of the early 1900s, and later the L-Series Blues King models from the 1930s. As with all of Gibson's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.
Classic Double-Ring 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 rosette on every Gibson Songmaker acoustic is a double-ring rosette similar to the rosette on Gibson's celebrated SJ-200. The main ring consists of seven-ply binding, and the second ring three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the Songmaker line of acoustics.
