The CF-100E Reissue model draws influence from Gibson's first ever cutaway acoustic guitar which was first released in the early 1950s. This fantastic reissue model combines a mixture of traditional build technique with modern appointments to keep its original character while ensuring it is performance-ready. Gibson have only released 65 of these superb Reissue models, so you'll need to act fast!
The CF-100E still has the stunning Florentine single cutaway in the body, what with the original model being Gibson's first ever cutaway acoustic. The flat body top is constructed from solid Sitka spruce and is thermally aged to refine the rich acoustic voice of this accurate Reissue. High grade mahogany tonewood is used in the back and sides which provides a well-rounded midrange as well as clear, incisive highs. Traditional scalloped X-bracing reinforces the body top and also boosts projection.
The body has an improved Vintage Sunburst finish because a finer sandpaper and polishing compounds are employed by the expert luthiers at Gibson for a unique, smooth appearance.
The CF-100E is fitted with a mahogany neck and shaped to the incredibly comfortable "C" profile. Thanks to the Florentine body cutaway, you are provided better access to the upper frets so you can play without restriction. Topping the neck is a slick 19-fret bound rosewood fingerboard which has an even smoother finish; this is due to the high quality PLEK technology in the neck, and the fingerboard is hand-rubbed and oiled for ultimate playability. The frets feature Mother of Pearl trapezoid inlays guiding you as you transition from one to the next.
The CF-100 Reissue has its own unique acoustic voice, and this is further enhanced by the addition of a P-90 single coil pickup in the neck position. The P-90 pickup offers a snappy, punchy single-coil tone and makes the CF-100E stand out from other electro acoustic models.
Volume and Tone controls feature below the pickguard enabling you to shape your sound to suit your playing needs.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Gibson have fitted a sturdy rosewood bridge to the lower bout of the body and paired it with a bone saddle. The bridge, like the fingerboard, is hand-rubbed and oiled for a sleek finish.
The limited edition CF-100E has vintage style tuners with oval plastic buttons for easy retuning and restringing. The Gibson logo and crown decorates the headstock for a traditional look.
To help protect your guitar for many years to come, Gibson supply a hardshell case with the purchase of the CF-100E Reissue model.
