Gibson Western Classic
Gibson Western Classic 3-Piece Back and Crown Inlay Acoustic Guitar Vintage Sunburst
The Gibson Western Classic Acoustic Guitar offers just about every luxurious touch Gibson's luthiers could think of. The Western Classic captures the guitar's vintage feel perfectly. The exotic woods—including a premium solid Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, eastern curly maple neck, and ebony fretboard—are just the ground work. On top is built one of the most brilliantly ornamented Gibson guitars ever with 5-ply top and back binding, multi-ply fingerboard binding with birdsbeak, moustache bridge, mother-of-pearl graduated crown fretboard and bridge inlays, gold Waverly tuners, multi-layer turtle pickguard, 3-rope marquetry, and nostalgic torch headstock inlay. Gibson builds fewer than 30 Western Classic Prewar 200 guitars each year.
