  • A Beautiful Piece of work

    As reviewed by MogoHoncho on 12/15/2008

    I own a Martin D-28 that I purchased new in 1968. I have been searching for another guitar that would compliment, not replace it, in my home studio production. Something with exquisite sound, but different from the sound of my Martin. The Songwriter is it. Extremely playable, smooth, bright and brilliant tone, and a great feeling neck. The electronics are top drawer and the guitar sounds fantastic when plugged in, although I will be using most of the time unplugged. You can tell it was hand made with care. This is a beautiful instrument, thanks Gibson.

  • The Songwriter Deluxe

    As reviewed by BIG DAVE on 11/23/2010

    I just purchased my second SWD. I sold my first one 5 years ago and have missed it dearly since then. I tried many other big time name brands including expensive Martins and Taylors ,even a custom shop Breedlove that cost much more than the SW; however none had the shimering sound and tones like this guitar. I am a Gibson man and a Guitar Center fan for working out decent deals for me. This guitar is well balanced and feels better in the hands and arms than most dreadnoughts ,a little smaller in size ,but huge in tone and playability. I do like the tone of Martins and even a few Taylors , but the SWD has its own bell ringing character and the neck , even though unbound is tremendous and comfortable. This is a very loud guitar and also sounds great plugged in. The only Gibsons sounding better in my opinion are the SJ 200 and the Advanced Jumbo, nothing else compares for that Gibson sound. Also, even though the SWD is gaining in popularity and now available in several wood top choices ;it still remains a tone machine secret in the world of dreadnoughts. A GREAT INVESTMENT

  • Just Buy This Guitar!!! You Will Not Be Disappointed!

    As reviewed by Tim on 1/21/2011

    I spent about 2 hours playing various acoustic guitars at GC, trying to find an acoustic guitar that would be versatile, and had the maximum amount of sustain and had the perfect balance of bass, mids and treble. I had narrowed it down between this guitar and a Martin HD-28. The issue that I had with the Martin was that the sound seemed far too mid-scooped for me and maybe too much emphasis on the bass (strictly my opinion and I am not knocking Martin in any way). Another selling point was this guitar had electronics already installed and the Martin did not. I also compared this guitar against other guitars that cost much more and according to my ears, it blew them away! The sustain and resonance on this guitar with strumming, lead, and finger style really caught my ear and sold me on the spot! The quality is totally awesome and playability is just perfect for me! I am also really impressed with the inlays on the fretboard and headstock. All the lines are really clean with no sharp frets and no faults in the nitrocellulose clear coat that covers the guitar. All in all I think this baby is an excellent buy!!!
