You are looking at a Gibson Custom Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway Arch Top Hollow Body Acoustic-Electric Guitar Sunrise Tea Burst, serial number SF150046. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (6 lbs, 3.3 oz.)

The ultimate modern classic, the Gibson Custom Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway Arch Top combines simplistic elegance and traditional Gibson tone & style with Gibson's innovative Eco-Friendly proprietary construction process. Utilizing only 1/3 of the wood for the top and back as a traditional carved top design, the Solid Formed 17" Venentian Cutaway Arch Top features a book-matched solid spruce top and a book-matched solid maple back. Going against the grain of traditional arch top guitar design, the wood grain is redirected instead of severed to produce a richer, more resonant and open sound while offering a design that's more environmentally friendly. The body and neck both come dressed in a Sunrise Tea Burst finish and showcase crisp white binding.

The redesigned Solid-Formed neck employs only 1/2 of the amount of wood than your typical neck while offering additional durability and improved tone. Providing exceptional strength where guitars tend to be the most vulnerable, the headstock is joined to the neck shaft and runs in a continuous grain. Featuring a precision dovetail neck joint, the heel block of the Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway Arch Top is precision-glued to the neck shaft. The neck shaft is then glued into the body's matching dovetail joint. For superior adjustability, the Solid-Formed neck comes equipped with a dual-action truss rod.

The Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway Arch Top comes outfitted with unique electronics that retain the natural acoustic qualities of this 17" arch top. For a smooth tone without dampening the natural sound of the guitar, a single Johnny Smith mini humbucker "hovers" above the body and is attached to the pickguard. It also boasts other design elements that help combat dampening such as an endpin input jack rather than the typical rim jack and the pickguard-mounted Tone & Volume controls. The removable electronics and pickguard allow players to turn this Arch Top into a fully acoustic instrument with ease.

With beautiful tone, striking looks, and one of the most groundbreaking designs in Gibson history, the Gibson Custom Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway Arch Top is bound to become the traditional design for tomorrow's players. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case and includes a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Custom.
