Hey everyone smile.gif This Thursday, I had the wonderful occasion to use a Gibson Songwriter Deluxe edition as a recording tool for GMC material and honestly speaking, it felt like the best acoustic guitar I have tried so far. PERIOD.

Not to mention the wonderful exterior aspect, this guitar has a rich, warm and big sound unplugged and the neck felt really comfy in my hand - I am really sorry I didn't have enough time to record more stuff with it, as I would've liked to try some Celtic or country music too, but nonetheless, I hybrid picked on it and strummed a bit, for the material which will be available to you pretty soon.

You can read the technical details here: Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Studio

And here are some pics I took with my phone smile.gif ...and the sound sampling, well, you'll need to have a little patience for that biggrin.gif It'll be available soon with nice orchestrations wink.gif

How does 1700 US Dollars sound to you Marcus? This is the price of this guitar - my friend (the owner) wants to sell it. It's out of reach for me, at this point, but I was curious about the fairness of the price.

That's about the right sort of price Cosmin. Here in England I can buy one new for £1,799. ($2270.34)

Hmmm, sounds very enticing... sad.gif If I only had the cash... This friend does the following thing: he buys tons of gear and sells what he doesn't feel that suits his needs or when he wants something new smile.gif He is a walking encyclopedia of amps and guitars laugh.gif

The price is definitely not bad at all!!! After all you decide of what this guitar would be worth for you, but well, it is a good price anyway
