the Gibson MSRP was on the Songwriter Deluxe when it was first introduced in 2003 ?

 

The reason I'm asking is I was curious as to how much it has grown since that date.

 

I just saw that it has gone up 299.00 since this years models as well as 2014's models.

 

Either the MSRP or the street retail price in 2003 is fine.

The original guitar was called the Songbird. When Gibson realized that Guild owned the name they changed the guitar to Songwriter. The 1999 price list shows the Songbird at $1,529.00

The Songbird Deluxe at $2149.0

 

 

The pricelist for 2003 shows the

Songwriter at $1,864.00

Songwriter Deluxe $2,399.00

Songwriter Deluxe Cutaway $2607.00

Thanks Hogeye !! That's an excellent answer to my question.

 

I read somewhere I think that the original version was the CL which I believe stood for Custom Line ?

 

Of course I could be wrong on that

 

below is a picture of a 1997 Gibson CL35 and it sure looks like an earlier version of a Songwriter Deluxe EC
