The square-shoulder dreadnought has been an integral character in Gibson’s ever-growing range of acoustic guitars, and the 2016 Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC combines the traditional with the modern with its accessible single cutaway design. Gibson first introduced the Songwriter Studio in 2003 and the 2016 Deluxe is just as extraordinary as the original. With its 1930’s style bracing arrangements and excellent fusion of tonewoods, the up-to-date 2016 version will make a grand servant to any guitarist.


Ever since Gibson began crafting guitars, they have been selective in their choice of tonewoods to create the sounds and tones that we instantly recognise from this brand of guitar.

The body top is constructed using solid sitka spruce wood which has proved to be a popular material. Sitka Spruce wood gives a dynamic response and produces a crisp range of sounds to suit guitarists of any genre. It projects a full bodied sound with crystal clear accuracy, and you can be assured that the spruce wood will merely improve with age.

The back and sides of the 2016 Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC model is made up of Indian Rosewood which is a traditional tonewood that produces anything from a deeper, low end sound to bright, sparkly highs, with a rich mid-range. This model has also been gifted with the time-honoured Gibson 1930's Advanced X-Braced Top which opens up the lower bout for a booming bassy response.

Joined to the guitar body by a compound dovetail joint is a single piece mahogany neck which has been given a round contour profile with a single action truss rod and cream binding to finish. The relationship between the dovetail joint and the tonewoods used allows the sonority to spread through the guitar. To complete the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard adorned with Mother of Pearl Paralellogram inlays. The single cutaway in the body enables a much easier access to the upper frets so you can comfortably reach those higher notes.


The 2016 Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC model is fitted with a Fishman Prefix Plus-T pickup in the soundhole which has a built-in tuner for ultimate reliability in every performance. The Fishman electronics give you full control over volume, bass and treble and also has the ability to fight against any horrible feedback noise. The built-in tuner can be used without actually having to plug in the guitar so you can tune quickly and efficiently whenever need be. This pickup will do a magnificent job of translating the acoustic sounds and tones of your guitar when plugged into an amp.


Gold-plated Grover Rotomatic tuners equip the headstock of the guitar to an accurate 14:1 gear ratio for precise tuning every time. To give the guitar its stunning Antique Natural finish, Gibson’s craftsmen have hand sprayed it with Nitrocellulose Lacquer. To complete the look is a tortoiseshell pickguard beneath the abalone rosette decorated soundhole for added protection and beauty.

The Gibson 2016 Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC is an excellently engineered electro acoustic guitar that will provide any guitarist with a flawless playing experience every time.
