- SF 150024. The first guitar to be introduced in the Solid-Formed by Gibson range, the 17 Venetian Cutaway Archtop represents simple elegance in both thought and design. It starts with an Eco-Friendly proprietary construction process that requires only 1/3 of the wood of conventional carved top design for its top and back and 1/2 of the wood for its neck. These lead an impressive list of features that represent significant advancements in both tone and construction.Dormed from two book-matched pieces of solid wood, the grain is redirected instead of severed, unlike traditional carving. Gibson Custom achieves this break through in Arch Top design via a proprietary process thats been in development for several years. As a result, the Solid Formed tone is richer and more pronounced.The redesigned Neck is stronger, stiffer and enhances the traditioal tone and sustain and enhancing the guitars overall sound performance, a dual action truss rod insures complete flexibility in adjustment. The acoustic quality of this generous 17 is amplified with a floating Johnny Smith mini Humbucker with no dampening-effect on the acoustic quality of this magnificent and big sounding guitar. The input jack is at the endpin, another detail that avoids dampening the guitars natural tone. The tone and volume controls are mounted to the pickguard, keeping them handy without touching the guitar. The pickguard and electronics can be removed to create a completely acoustic Arch Top guitar.
