The Luthier's choice 6-string, designed by master luthier Ren Ferguson.
The SPLCST02 Gibson acoustic guitar was designed by master luthier Ren Ferguson, incorporating the finest details and hand-selected materials. The end result is the incredibly deluxe Gibson SPLCST02, a 6-string guitar of unparalleled beauty, with a strong, impressive sound that's undeniably Gibson.
The Gibson SPLCST02 Design Custom Luthier's acoustic guitar features an Adirondack spruce top, offering balance and projection in a beautiful veneer. Adirondack spruce from upstate New York is a scarce, costly wood, known for its rich, mature, and well-balanced voice, and is considered a deluxe option by makers that use it. The Madagascar rosewood back and sides offer remarkable beauty and powerful resonance. The body and top are connected with hide glue, ensuring the Gibson acoustic guitar's longevity. The Madagascar rosewood bridge and fingerboard continue the trend of using deluxe woods, and offer clarity in the Gibson SPLCST02 Design Custom's tone and sustain. It's period-correct mother-of pearl diamond arrow inlay, and the 1930s mother-of-pearl Gibson script logo on the headstock add a vintage look and feel; while the guitar's construction and design present a guitar of impressive quality.
Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the acoustic guitar body, a feature normally found only in limited run, handmade guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic guitar is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the Gibson SPLCST02 guitar's sound projection. This traditional pattern delivers a tight tone, with warm, woody midrange and evenly balanced tone across all 6 strings, making the Gibson guitar more than capable to meet today's uncompromising standards among blues and roots guitar players.
