Country Western
Distinctive Vintage Appeal
$3,149
The January Limited Edition Country Western is a true artist favorite. The traditional size and shape pump out the full Gibson sound, while this Country Western has many distinctive details which set it apart. The Antique Natural Sitka spruce top is matched with Heritage Cherry finished mahogany back and sides for a look that's classic, yet different. Hand inlaid mother-of-pearl dresses the headstock, fretboard, and bridge. The adjustable bridge allows for complete control of the string height for comfortable playing throughout the fingerboard, and an LR Baggs Lyric pickup with bridge-plate-mounted mic provides natural amplification when plugged in. Limited to only 65 handmade instruments built in Bozeman, Montana.
