Overview

The 2017 High Performance HP 415 W is hand-built using all North American tonewoods. This new for 2017 instrument offers an innovative, slimmer, round shoulder cutaway guitar with all the traditional build techniques that go into each Gibson Acoustic. A solid Sitka spruce top, traditionally braced with hand-scalloped braces, is joined with beautiful, chocolate-toned, walnut back and sides to provide a strong and balanced tonal range with superior clarity between each string. Packing plenty of sustain; the HP 415 W is perfect for any style of playing. The newly designed body depth responds wonderfully to all the nuances of multiple playing styles.

The flatter fingerboard radius of the HP 415 W allows for easy string bending anywhere on the neck. Gibson took it a step further by designing and engineering a brand-new neck profile, the Advanced Response Neck. This neck profile, carved from a two-piece maple neck, will have you playing longer and with less fatigue.

Finished with classic Gibson appointments, including a gold block Gibson decal on the headstock, classic mini nickel Grover tuners, superior Tusq nut and saddle, walnut bridge and fingerboard, mother-of-pearl position markers, and an L.R. Baggs Element pickup system which delivers the true tonal character of your Gibson Acoustic.

Designed and handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana.

Comes with hardshell case.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 High Performance HP 415 W Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is truly amazing! The tone, the feel, the look...everything. I have handled many acoustics that cost 2x's the price and they don't sound as good as this one does. The more expensive models may feel better but they do not sound better. Everyone who I let handle this guitar says the same thing. "Wow...the tone on this thing is amazing!"

      A few decades ago, Gibson made several electric guitars out of Walnut. Those are typically referred to as "The Paul" or "The SG" etc. They were originally designed to be budgets models. Fast forward to the present, those same Walnut Gibson's are highly sought after for their tone and playability.

      The Moral of the Story: In 25 yrs people will look back at these amazing guitars and see their rich tone, playability and overall magical sound and will collect these as well.

      Several highlights: Every genre of music sounds good. I play everything from classical to bluesy stuff and it all sounds incredible IMO. When I am playing, my lovely wife says; "Wow, that sounds great" and I say its the guitar that makes me sound much better than I am. Is it possible for the highs to be shimmering and the mids to be pronounced and the bass to be resounding all in one guitar? With the Gibson HP415 W it is!

      Thanks.

        Comments about Gibson 2017 High Performance HP 415 W Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        When I first picked the guitar up I was shocked by how light it is. I sat down, got situated, started playing and was blown away at the complete lack of effort it took to have a blast. It sounds deep and gorgeous. I am so happy that I went in to GC that day and picked up this guitar. I too have played guitars much more expensive and agree that this sounds better and its so much more fun to play. Buy this guitar!

            Comments about Gibson 2017 High Performance HP 415 W Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I use this both in church and with our band the Desoto Blues Band and it is excellent sound when plugged into a sound board or PA for public performances. Few people realize the assault taking place on the continued use of Rosewood and Ebony and within ten years these materials will probably be outlawed worldwide. I love the Maple Neck and this is twice the strength of Mahogany. Plus the neck is two piece with with a Walnut Insert. The body is made from American Black Walnut and has a beautiful appearance. I was surprised at the sound quality and this guitar is at a bargain price. The action was quite low that way I like so this is a great guitar at a great price and oh by the way it is a Made in America Gibson with all American Wood.
