Overview

Combining Gibson's rich history of hand-built acoustics with modern innovations, the Songwriter Progressive features acoustic improvements to complement progressive styles. It includes Gibson G FORCE tuners for quick access to standard and alternate tunings which eliminates the need for multiple guitars in different tunings. Its titanium tune-o-matic saddle provides you with fast playing string action and an easy-to-adjust string height for progressive guitar techniques.

The Songwriter Progressive's slimmed down body depth allows for increased playability and comfort. It's topped off with xcellent acoustic sound reproduction provided by an award-winning L.R. Baggs Lyric pickup system, featuring a mic pickup for amplified modern percussive playing.

Other features on this upgraded version include a 2016 engraved truss rod cover, improved feel thanks to the softened fingerboard edge which makes it a more comfortable fit in the contour your hand, an enhanced finish thanks to finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds used on its high gloss finish, and smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridges which will make them last longer and maximizes the wood's natural vibrancy.

Finally, the Songwriter Progressive utilizes state-of-the-art German-engineered Plek technology to create the finest playing surface possible which has also been hand finished for the finest feel and playability.

Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Gibson 2016 Songwriter Progressive Square Shoulder Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I chose this guitar over several other guitars and the biggest reason why I did use this over other guitars was because it's very easy to play the lead like you would play on a Gibson Les Paul. Also I'll go over a few things that I like. I really like the titanium saddle on the bridge it really gives a lot of sustain. also too I like the body of the guitar your right arm really fits in a right position when you play. This guitar has a lot of sustain when you hammer on accord or a solo note. I hate to admit it but I really like the g-force tuning system. It really turns fast and accurate. One thing that really kind of didn't like was the skinny neck I think it should have a little more thickness. I have to admit the price was a buying factor for me because it was marked down $800 cheaper.
