OVERVIEW

The classic Gibson Songwriter Deluxe, times 2!

The Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar employs a comfortably small dreadnought body style that's easy to cradle in your lap. The reduced size makes it easier to hold when it's played in a standing position too. Based on the 6-string Songwriter Deluxe, the 12-string version extends the richly colored harmonics of the original. Appointments and fittings are first class all the way around. These include its sparkling gold tuning machines, an abalone rosette, checkered marquetry work, and six plies of top binding. The traditional split parallelogram motif adorns the beautifully sleek ebony fingerboard. The harmonic wealth that pours out of the Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic is produced by a solid Sitka spruce soundboard atop solid Indian rosewood back and sides. Gibson's active electronics and undersaddle pickup are fine-tuned to extract all the tonal richness this guitar puts out.

FEATURES
  • Grover Rotomatic Tuners
  • Bone nut and Tusq saddle
  • "Big Sky" radiused fingerboard edge
  • Industry's finest electronics
  • Premium hardshell case

Songwriter 12 String Guitar

Comments about Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I ordered this guitar because I was told it had a built in tuner. it didn't so I had to send it back. We all could have saved some money if the sales rep was more educated on what He was selling. With the cost being so high, you would think Gibson would have put a tuner in the guitar.

    Comments about Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I always wanted this guitar but was unable to force myself to pay over 2 grand for it and I didn't want a used one. I played a Taylor, Martin, Guild, Rainsong, Takamine and this Gibson at my local music store and realized this Gibson was the one for me. It was the best fit for my hand, body, playing style and it sounded so sweet. Plugged in and unplugged it was the best for me but I wasn't willing to pay 3 grand plus tax for it. When Musicians Friend dropped the price to 2 grand with no tax and free shipping I jumped on it. What a great deal. It needed a few minor adjustments after shipping so I tweaked it to conform to my personal preferences and now it's so amazing I can't put it down for more than a few minutes. Everything about this guitar is beautiful and the craftsmanship is excellent. I am very happy with my purchase and with Musicians Friend.

    Great Guitar... VERY Beautiful

    By CSNYplayer

    Comments about Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have had my eye on this guitar for sometime, and pulled the trigger when the black friday coupon came out. I own a J45, and a D28 but was wanting a twelve string. I took a chance as I did not get to PRE-PLAY this guitar. When it showed up I was bowled over right away by the looks and craftsmanship. It is a STUNNER. I have played out with it once and the guitars electronics worked great, they translated the great sound of the guitar well. It plays very easy right out of the box... thanks GIBSON. It is a powerful Rosewood machine. BIG CEILING on this guitar...lots of headroom. I look forward to many years with this outstanding instrument. It is a GIBSON, so you are going to be hard pressed to find a BETTER guitar. and as far as looks go. Good luck, I am still blown away every time I lay eyes on it.

    Beautiful 12 string, plays easy as a six!

    By Maxwell-dH9Za

    from Canada

    Comments about Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Beautiful guitar, everything about it is so very beautiful. Sounds huge and very brilliant. I can't wait until my next gig to use it. It plays like a great six string. I tried playing straight bar chord songs with no hand fatigue, where as most 12 strings make you tired with open chords. The wood is fantastic, love the rosewood veneer headstock. Also like the hide away volume dial. The finish is great as well. I really can't say enough about this instrument.

    Want a 12 String... Don

    By Jimmy Crowe

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Absolutely love it! One of the best sounding 12 strings that I have ever played. I shopped around for a while and tried many different brands, but this guitar suits my playing style and environment. The feel is like no other. This guitar has a warm tone and provides a full range of sounds. The quality is Amazing. One of Gibson?s BEST! My only disappointment is that, if you are looking of electronics, I wish Gibson would have put in the Fishman Prefix Premium Blend system as they did in the sister Guitar, the Gibson Songwriter Deluxe EC. As for other 12 strings, sure? you can go cheaper and get a Yamaha, Guild, Epiphone, Seagull, Takamine, or low end Taylor, but why bother? you only get what you pay for, and you will be wishing that you would bought the real deal? The Gibson 12 String Songwriter Deluxe.

    Awsome

    Comments about Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Modern Classic 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    My friend bought this a week ago. It sounds amazing, even over the phone (haha). I've also heard it being recorded in studio and played on stage. AMAZING. Good enough for anyone who wants a great 12 string from the best guitar company ever. So I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have a spending limit. A+
