Gibson CF-100E Reissue

Gibson_CF-100E_guitar

It is hard to get a real sense of just how radical the CF-100E was in the early ’50s when it was introduced. This was the first production cutaway acoustic guitar with on-board pickup ever made for goodness sakes! Before this model came along, folks just had to stand as close to a microphone as possible to attempt to be heard when performing … and if you wanted to take a lead, you were definitely playing below the 14th fret!

Well take a trip back in time and play this still-performance-worthy Gibson CF-100E reissue that comes complete with bone nut & saddle, bound Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, solid Sitka spruce top, solid tropical mahogany back & sides and the esteemed Gibson P-90 pickup!
