Relish the rosewood and top-notch appointments of this special, limited-run model.

The Gibson Songwriter Standard EC Rosewood acoustic-electric guitar combines Gibson's expertise in acoustic craftsmanship with modern innovations. Its rosewood back and sides paired with a solid Sitka spruce top produce a warm, balanced tone with excellent resonance. The dreadnought cutaway body provides comfort and easy access to upper frets while retaining traditional Gibson style. Outfitted with a Fishman pickup and preamp, the Songwriter Standard accurately conveys your natural acoustic tone through an amp or PA. With premium appointments like mother-of-pearl inlays, Grover tuners and a hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer finish, the Songwriter Standard EC Rosewood lets you play legendary Gibson acoustic tone on stage or in the studio.

Warm, Balanced Tone With Rosewood and Spruce

The Songwriter Standard EC Rosewood sings with a warm, balanced tone thanks to its rosewood back and sides paired with a solid Sitka spruce top. The rosewood contributes a rich low end and crisp highs, while the spruce provides excellent resonance and dynamics. Together they create a versatile acoustic voice that works for any style, from rock to folk to country. The scalloped X-bracing gives the spruce top superior vibration for better projection, articulation and volume. You'll love the guitar-like feel and shimmering acoustic tone.

Fishman Electronics Accurately Capture Your Natural Tone

The onboard Fishman pickup and preamp system lets you accurately capture the Songwriter's natural acoustic voice when plugging into an amplifier or PA system. The undersaddle pickup combined with a soundhole-mounted preamp produces a balanced, feedback-resistant signal. Shape your tone with the preamp's 4-band EQ and built-in tuner. The pickup blends unobtrusively with the acoustic sound, giving you the flexibility to play amplified with confidence.

Play Comfortably on a Dreadnought Cutaway

The Songwriter Standard EC Rosewood uses Gibson's comfortable square shoulder dreadnought body style with a cutaway for easy upper fret access. The cutaway allows you to play solos, riffs and intricate chords beyond the 10th fret while retaining the robust dreadnought voice. Together with a 25.5" scale mahogany neck, round neck profile, 43.8mm nut width and smooth rosewood fingerboard, the Songwriter Standard feels natural and inviting to players of all styles.

Built to Last with Premium Appointments

With its hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer finish, mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays and Grover Rotomatic tuners, the Songwriter Standard EC looks, plays and feels like a high-end Gibson acoustic. The nitro-cellulose finish protects the tonewoods vibrating within while aging gracefully over decades of playing. And Gibson USA craftsmanship ensures the Songwriter Standard will become a lifetime musical companion. Order the Gibson Songwriter Standard EC Rosewood today and experience a legendary acoustic tone.
