2004 Gibson Songwriter Sitka Spruce and Mahogany ID-9006
2004 Gibson Songwriter Sitka Spruce and Mahogany
The Gibson Songwriter sets a new benchmark for modern acoustic guitars. Combining time-honored production techniques such as Gibson’s renowned 1930s - bracing pattern and cutting-edge appointments, this guitar is a versatile, easy player with maximum tone, volume and projection.
It features all solid wood construction with a Sitka Spruce top combined with Mahogany back and sides. Sitka is ideal for players who find Adirondack Red Spruce too punchy, bright, and stiff - but do not want to sacrifice on clarity. Sitka Spruce is a versatile topwood that accentuates the warm round aspects of the guitar's tone.
The top end is sweet and crisp; with a driving, focused midrange and low-end. It strums with the best of them, but has a neck that flatpicks beautifully across the board. The Mahogany back and sides keep your lead lines clear and distinct, just like the classic flatpicking recordings we've grown to love from players like Clarence White, Doc Watson, and Norman Blake.
This guitar is also incredibly balanced in it's frequency response. Notes are rich and full all the way up and down the neck. The midrange and high-end sparkle will cut through any studio or on-stage mix with ease. The lows are balanced, defined, well rounded, and never boomy.
The body design of the Songwriter is known as a small dreadnought and incorporates classic features like ivoroid binding, Morado fingerboard and bridge and a round mahogany neck all contribute to the tonal brilliance of this guitar.
Finish details like the abalone soundhole rosette, mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays, three-point tortoise pickguard, and gold Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners all contribute to its elegant styling. Gibson’s hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer in Antique Natural finish ensures a beautiful sheen and authentic aging that doesn’t interfere with the guitar’s resonance.
This 2004 Gibson Songwriter Sitka Spruce and Mahogany is in excellent + condition with only a few minor surface scratches and light finish checking on the peghead. It has minor fret wear and includes a hardshell case.
