Built to the Alice in Chains guitarist's requirements, the Jerry Cantrell "Atone" and "Fire Devil" Songwriter cutaway electro-acoustics are based on the long-established Songwriter dreadnought platform and feature a reduced body depth for enhanced playing comfort.
The "Atone" model uniquely features a ‘circle-in-square’ scratchplate and can be spotted in Cantrell’s video for the song “Atone” – the opening track of his latest solo album, Brighten (opens in new tab).
Like the “Wino” Les Paul Custom, the "Atone" Songwriter is available in a limited run of 100 instruments.
This fine, Bozeman-made guitar is priced $3,749.
Similarly, the Gibson Jerry Cantrell “Fire Devil” Songwriter is available in a limited run of 100 guitars and is priced $3,999.
Hailing from Gibson’s Acoustic Custom Shop in Bozeman, Montana, this variation differs on account of its “Firefly” pickguard. To all intents and purposes the other specifications are the same.
- Bound rosewood body with a reduced depth and a Sitka spruce top with multiple-ply binding
- 25.5” scale mahogany neck with a 20-fret, 16” radius rosewood fingerboard featuring mother-of-pearl double-parallelogram inlays
- Gold-plated Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners and a rosewood reverse belly bridge with a Tusq saddle
- L.R. Baggs VTC undersaddle pickup and preamp (1/4” endpin jack)
- Ebony gloss nitrocellulose finish
