Songwriter Koa
Figured Koa Back and Sides
$3,649
At the heart of Gibson's square-shoulder dreadnought line is the Songwriter. First introduced in 2003, the Songwriter combines Gibson's time-honored bracing patterns and our dreadnought shape, providing a supreme tonal quality. This limited edition Songwriter Koa is our powerhouse instrument, handcrafted with stunning AAA Koa back and sides for a beautiful high end with added tonal complexity from our 1930's style top bracing. The headstock is crowned with a matching koa veneer for added elegance. Limited to only 50 handmade premium instruments worldwide.
