Overview

The Gibson Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway (in Bourbon Burst) is an acoustic-electric guitar, which takes the traditional archtop design and give it a modern makeover, ideal for the live performers, and  features an innovative design.

Wonderfully rich, pronounced tone thanks to consistent wood grain and Johnny Smith mini humbucker.

This guitar's magic lies in its continuous grain - by using an innovative proprietary process to form its wood rather than carve it, Gibson was able to create a guitar with an unbelievably rich, pronounced tone. The Continuous grain delivers full, open tone, and its eco-friendly, forward-thinking design is evident on its innovative neck design - less wood, stronger joint, and enhanced tone.

The Gibson Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway was crafted through a proprietary process in which its bookmatched pieces of wood (two for the top and two for the back) were formed, rather than carved, into an arched top and back. Unlike a traditional carved top, this guitar features a continuous grain, which provides you with more broadcast and richer tone.

Not only does the process utilized to build the Gibson Solid Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway make for a stellar-sounding archtop acoustic-electric guitar, but it's also good for the environment. By using their eco-friendly proprietary construction process, Gibson was able to build an instrument requiring only 1/3 of the amount of wood needed to build a traditional carved-top guitar's top and back, and only 1/2 of the wood for its neck.
