A couple weeks ago I told everyone I was happy with the Guitars I had.... I was trying to be good, honest, even sold one of my other guitars. Well, somehow the thought that I "needed" a Gibson acoustic entered my head and started me looking. I found this used Songwriter DLX hanging on the wall at one of the nearby Guitar Centers. It sounded good and was in excellent condition, but I put it back on the wall. Over the next week or so I played a bunch of others, but none played quite as nice as this one. This guitar stayed in my mind, taunting me. Went back, and I couldn't find it in the GC acoustic room. My heart sank a little but I asked one of the sales guys if they still had it. We found it tucked in behind a very abused looking Epiphone, on the top rack in a corner. I played it and, compared to the others I'd played, it sounded better than before. Anyways, it plays and sounds as good as it looks with Rosewood back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top. I'm very happy it worked out this way because I got to play a lot of other Gibsons and this one sounded and felt the best.

I think another customer who liked the guitar a lot PUT IT behind the Epiphone on purpose, until he could either ask his wife for permission or until he could scratch up the money.
I am glad you got it. It looks like a very nice guitar.

Congrats. I have a good friend who has one of those (or something very close to it); his sounds quite impressive as well. You got a good one.

Love the bling on it! The mustachio bridge, abalone rosette and especially the parallelogram fretboard inlays. Bet it sounds as nice as it looks.

My first (ok, second) guitar was a Gibson ES 300 which had the same fretboard inlays. Sold it off to someone who would fix it up but still have a sentimental hankering for another Gibson. Luckily the Keb Mo small bodied 12 fret doesn't have a cutaway, else I'd have to find room in the harem for one . . .
