- Outfitted with a supreme Amulet M pickup for amplified playing. The Trance Audio's Amulet M analog pickup system provides superbly accurate amplification of the guitar's natural acoustic tone
- Gibson Acoustic "breaks" or "rolls" the edges of the fingerboard into the curve of the neck profile for a sublimely comfortable playing feel
- The use of finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds in a laborious hand-rubbed process results in a smoother high-gloss finish

- Deeper penetrating oils hand-rubbed into critical wood components yield smoother and more durable fingerboards and bridges

This limited edition is sure to stand out with a burst finish, a color used on exclusive instruments and developed for 2016 by Gibson’s master luthiers in Bozeman.
