About the Gibson Solid Formed 17" Venetian:

The Solid-Formed 17" Venetian Cutaway Archtop is destined to become tomorrow's traditional design. The Gibson Custom Shop's latest innovation is one of the most forward thinking guitars in Gibson's long history.

The 17" Venetian Cutaway represents simple elegance in both thought and design. It all 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 the wood for its neck.

Because the Solid-Formed guitar's top and back are each formed from two book-matched pieces of solid wood, the grain is redirected of severed, unlike traditional carving. Gibson Custom achieves this break through in Arch-top design via a proprietary process that's been in development for several years. As a result, the Solid Formed tone is richer and more pronounced.

To keep the acoustic properties of the generous 17" body unimpeded, a Johnny Smith mini Humbucker "hovers" above the body and is attached to the pickguard, which means there's no dampening-essentially creating an amplified acoustic instrument.
