The Gibson Songwriter 12-String
With the Gibson Acoustic Songwriter 12-String, you get a small square-shoulder dreadnought body made from choice tonewoods that make up a very attractive and very playable acoustic-electric guitar. The Songwriter 12-String is a great performance instrument with outstanding acoustic tone, thanks to its solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood body. And LR Baggs VTC electronics are ready for you to take to the stage with impeccable clarity and dynamics. With a sweet voice and looks to match, the Gibson Acoustic Songwriter 12-String is sure to impress.
Built for premium tone
Rich, detailed overtones abound from the Songwriter 12-String’s solid rosewood back and sides, and they look fantastic. What’s more, the Songwriter 12-String is topped with solid Sitka spruce, adding rich and powerful accents to your sound. When you imagine what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like, this is it. Gibson even incorporated 1930s-style hand-scalloped Advanced X-bracing, further enhancing your tone and projection.
Exceptionally smooth playability
The Songwriter 12-String has a Comfort Contour neck profile that feels at home in your hand whether you’re playing chords or single-note lines. As you play your way up the fretboard, you’ll definitely appreciate the smooth feel of the bound fingerboard with rolled edges. With a neck that plays this smooth, you’ll be able to play longer with less fatigue — a very important consideration for acoustic guitar performance.
Amazing sound onstage
This system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that enhances the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the VTC gives your Gibson Acoustic Songwriter 12-String the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
