Watch Amythyst Kiah put the new Gibson Generation G-45 through its paces

Giving an intimate performance of her song Wild Turkey.

Celebrating the launch of its new range of acoustic guitars, the Generation Collection, Gibson has teamed up with three singer-songwriters: Amythyst Kiah, Nikki Lane and Scarypoolparty. Amythyst Kiah has kicked things off with an intimate performance of her song Wild Turkey.

In the performance, Kiah is playing a Generation G-45 acoustic. Like all the instruments in the collection, it features a solid sitka spruce top and solid walnut back and sides, as well as a utile (also known as sipo mahogany) neck with the new ‘Advanced Response’ profile.

The G-45 has a slightly slimmer take on a J-45 body shape, with no cutaways and a 24.75-inch scale length.


Wild Turkey is taken from Kiah’s recent record Wary + Strange, which arrived in June. The song features intricate fingerpicking, and lyrics that mourn her mother, who drowned when Kiah was a teenager. You can see the performance below.
