The historic square-shoulder body and Moustache-like sculpted bridge give it an unmistakable Gibson look.

Onstage, the Fishman Custom electronics offer precise control of your sound.

too pricey for a 'traveller'

Comments about Gibson Traveling Songwriter CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a little more than a year ago. The quality workmanship is superb. Great playability up and down the neck. It would be nice to have an onboard tuner as well since they call this a traveller model. One thing of note is that the sound hole is in the bottom backside of the guitar. It sounds great but you sort of have to get use to the fact that the sound is not coming out from the front. This is the precise reason that I bought this because all my other acoustic-electrics have the standard front soundholes. The sound of course is not as full compared to the bigger guitars but it does sounds crisp (depending on the strings you use). Great guitar but a bit too pricy.

An interesting guitar but not for everyone

By Howard Ostrow

from Denver, CO

Comments about Gibson Traveling Songwriter CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I'm not sure why Gibson labels this a "traveling" guitar. It has a thin profile but otherwise it's closer to a full size guitar. The rear port gives it an almost dobro like sound when it's not plugged in. I guess the traveling part is the muted sound when played acoustically. When plugged in the tone is very natural. The neck feels nice and action is low. I use a varation on an open D tuning with it and I enjoying playing it. I thinks that it's a bit on pricey side for a "traveling" guitar. I bought from some who won it in a contest for less than half the going price.
