High-quality appointments and superb tone.

The Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC Acoustic-Electric Guitar is crafted to reflect simple and sophisticated elegance. With its cutaway design, abalone trim and distinctive mother of pearl fingerboard and headstock inlays, the Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC is among the finest guitars from Gibson's Songwriter family of acoustics. The Songwriter is also considered one of Gibson's finest sounding square-shouldered guitars.

Gold Grover Rotomatic Tuners
Grover's original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with abundant style and performance exactly suited for the Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC Guitar. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics 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. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gearbox provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.

Gibson Custom Pickguard
The pickguard on the Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Cutaway model is a custom-line design made from Tortec. As with all of Gibson's pickguards, the coloring, inlay, and binding are all done by hand.

Gibson Songwriter Rosette
The rosette on the Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC Guitar 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, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the cutaway Songwriter Guitar.

Rosewood Fingerboard with Rolled Edges and Deluxe Custom Inlays
The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The fingerboard inlays of the Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC are a completely new design made of genuine mother of pearl, and 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 Acoustics' rolled edges are slightly beveled for an extremely smooth and comfortable feel, enhancing the playability of the Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC Guitar.

Body Tonewoods
The top of the Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Custom EC is made from AA-grade 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 dry it out, 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.

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 pattern inside the Songwriter Deluxe Custom 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.
