Made in the Bozeman Plant Montana USA.

…The Gibson Gospel guitar was designed with a flat top, had square shoulders, arched back, a solid Sitka spruce top, maple neck,with laminated maple back and sides and had a tortoise style body binding and pick guard. These original guitars were only available with a natural finish. The headstock featured the image of a Dove below the Gibson logo. The guitar came with a unique laminated arched back that had no back bracing. This type of back has been a feature on several other guitars. The arched back provided its own support, so there was no need for bracing.In 1992 Gibson again offered the Gospel acoustic model. The reissue defers compared to the original. Gibson chose mahogany over maple for the reissue. The new version of the Gospel guitar has multiple white binding, solid mahogany sides and back. The unbound maple neck was topped with a rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. The braces were scalloped like those on the more expensive models.

This guitar was designed to be a deep sounding vocal backup instrument.
