Gibson John Hiatt

0.0000.hiattIn celebration of his achievements, Gibson presents the John Hiatt Model , a custom-appointed acoustic guitar from the luthiers of Bozeman, Montana.

With the lines of the beloved J-45 “round-shouldered” dreadnought and Hiatt’s own specifications of solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and one-piece mahogany neck with “modified V” profile and 24 3/4”-scale Madagascar rosewood fingerboard, it’s a sweet tone machine on par with the best pre-War Gibson flat-tops, yet equipped as a top-flight performance machine for today’s professional singer-songwriter.

Upgraded details such as advanced, scalloped X bracing, the unparalleled Fishman Ellipse matrix blend and preamp system, a bone nut and Tusq saddle all work to ensure rich, resonant tones, either unplugged or fully amplified, while a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose Triple-Burst finish, multi-ply top binding, double-ring rosette, fire-stripe pickguard, mother-of-pearl dot inlays, and “John Hiatt” signature engraved truss-rod cover all declare that this is a rare and exclusive instrument.

Only 100 John Hiatt Model guitars will be produced by Gibson, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush blue lining, an owner’s manual, and Gibson’s Gold Warranty.

Body and Finish
This big-bodied, round-shouldered dreadnought is built from the classic tonewood combination of solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, with an advanced X-brace made of scalloped spruce braces supporting the top, a brace moved closer to the soundhole for improved strength and resonance.

To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer Triple-Burst finish and elegant multi-ply top binding and single-ply back binding ensure the John Hiatt Model looks just as glorious as it sounds.

Neck, Fingerboard and Headstock
The guitar’s neck and headstock are made much in the tradition of the original J-45, with the 24 3/4” scale length as featured on several classic Gibson flat-tops.
