What makes a Gibson Acoustic Guitar so special?
A question well worth consideration we believe. More than a century of accumulated experience building some of the worlds most desirable musical instruments is a major factor. We could talk about the exquisite and reliable materials they use, why certain tonewoods are chosen, the superb craftsmanship honed over years of dedication to the guitar maker’s craft.
We could also talk about the tone and the playability – playability further enhanced by our renowned Pro-SCM setup resulting in a touch that is sublime and a sound to fill your senses.
Let us instead talk about the most important factor – what makes a Gibson Acoustic Guitar so special?
The number of songs written, recorded and performed on a Gibson Acoustic guitar are immeasurable. In fact, as you read this another song has just been written and recorded somewhere on a Gibson.
With its blend of traditional design, modern craftsmanship and performance-based appointments, this Gibson Acoustic-Electric Parlor Rosewood AG 6-string guitar is waiting to inspire someone – maybe you.
Parlor guitars have been around since the mid-18th century. Their popularity peaked in the early 19th century and today it happening again with a huge surge in popularity. Narrower and shallower than a dreadnought, it’s comfortable and easier to hold than the larger dreadnought style.
This Gibson Parlor Rosewood AG guitar is a wonderful guitar and suited to wide variety of musical genres. Its sound is dynamic yet beautifully balanced and articulate without the artificial booming lows of some guitars and sounds equally at home being strummed and fingerpicked.
The classic tonewood combination of the solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Rosewood back and sides offer an elegant aesthetic and contribute to the power and clarity of each note.
This is a wonderful sounding acoustic guitar and Gibson have pulled out all stops to preserve this pristine tone under amplification. The Parlor Rosewood AG has been fitted with the LR Baggs Element VTC system and the results are simply outstanding! The LR Baggs Element VTC system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer designed to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a dynamic, lively and natural acoustic sound. The unobtrusive volume control is conveniently mounted out of the way just inside the soundhole.
