Gibson Gospel Dread


Recommended Posts

I played two original-issue Maple back'n'sides Gospels from '72 and '77 last year, and loved them both. I've only found a handful of Norlin-era acoustics that tickle me, but those two were both stupendous instruments. Arched back, no back bracing, huge raw rumble in the low end, piano-like mids and bells all the way at the top end. Glorious...I'd have bought both if I'd had the funds.


I've never played the Hog reissues, but I've heard very good things. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe they're similar in timbre to a Hummingbird but with longer scale and more volume courtesy of the arched unbraced back.
