The Gibson Acoustic 2017 HP 415 W Acoustic Guitar in a beautifuil natural finish is a breath-taking instrument. It is an outstanding guitar that delivers professional-level playability, with superb detail and finishing touches that are completed to a world class standard. The Gibson Acoustic team have gone above and beyond to guarantee that the HP 415 W is an instrument you will treasure for many years to come.
Clarity and power
The body back and sides are crafted using walnut, which gives the HP 415 S a delightfully clear yet mellow tone. The shallow four-inch body depth ensures that a snappy and responsive punchiness is ever present. This is then delivered with clarity and power by the Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced by scalloped bracing for superior resonance and projection.
Improved neck profile and fingerboard radius
Paired with the body is a 2-piece maple neck, which is shaped to the new "Advanced Response" profile to establish greater freedom as you explore the neck. Franklin Titebond 50 hot hide glue has been applied to the neck joint, so you can rest assured that it is ready for anything you can throw at it.
Married to the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard that is decorated with framed single parallelogram with gold and white Mother of Pearl detail. The fingerboard has been given a flatter radius to make string bends even smoother across the entire length of the neck so you are guaranteed absolute comfort throughout your performances.
Upgraded LR Baggs Session VTC system
As only the finest components will do, the Gibson Acoustic 2017 HP 415 W is equipped with the new and improved L.R. Baggs Session VTC pickup system, which delivers a professional-level recording-ready pickup straight out of the case. Making adjustments couldn't be easier thanks to the soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls, enabling you to focus on your performance.
A black Tusq nut is fitted to ensure the tone remains consistent while keeping the spacing and balance between the strings accurate for optimum acoustic sound. Grover Mini Rotomatic tuning machines are fitted to the AJ-style headstock, effortlessly upholding tuning integrity with precision at a 14:01 ratio.
Fitted to the body is a modern belly-down rosewood bridge with Tusq saddle, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock logo sits beautifully above the grover tuning machines, enhancing the understated yet elegant overall finish Gibson have applied to this model. Further to this, each Gibson Acoustic 2017 HP 415 W Acoustic Guitar comes complete with a hardshell case to keep it clean and safe.
