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.
