The left-handed G-Writer EC is equipped with a Gibson Player Port. The Player Port is an original Gibson concept from the early 1960s that has been refined by Gibson's acoustic luthier team to deliver a truly revolutionary sonic improvement that adds a new dimension to the sound. The Gibson Player Port allows you to hear the guitar as you're playing it like you've never heard it before -- the same way your audience hears it -- maximizing the sonic impact for an immersive playing and listening experience.

Join us as we take the Gibson Generation Series for a test drive:

The G-Writer EC is part of the Generation Collection. Like all models in this collection, it is made in Bozeman, MT, by the same highly skilled craftspeople who make all Gibson acoustics. It features a solid Sitka spruce top and beautiful solid walnut back and sides for tone that sounds crisp and resonant. You'll find that the slightly thinner cutaway body is more comfortable to play, and provides effortless access to the upper frets. The TUSQ nut and saddle along with the Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners deliver solid tuning stability so you can spend more time playing instead of tuning, and the utile neck with its easy-playing Advanced Response neck profile is so comfortable you won't want to put it down. It also comes equipped with an LR Baggs Element Bronze pickup system, so your G-Writer EC will sound as good to your audience as it does to you. A gig bag is also included.

I've owned some decent acoustics... a Martin, an Epiphone jumbo, a Yamaha, a Takamine, a Michael Kelly, all of which didn't quite get me there. I've played some higher end Martins, vintage Guilds, which sounded better than what I had, but not better enough to pull the trigger. I listened to a couple of videos on this guitar, and wham! I hear sustain, clarity, and dynamics from these players... and I knew in my gut, this was the one! This guitar can hold a note as long as you need, it is responsive to your touch which gives you outsized dynamic range, the neck is right, wide enough and deep enough for my hands, and the tones just sparkle! The ebony fretboard, sitka and walnut body just reverberates... I have found the guitar that sings like I imagine. At 1600 bucks, this is a bargain for an American made guitar with the fit, finish, and sound this Gibson G-Writer has! I could not be more emphatic... if you're a lefty player, check one of these out!
