The Gibson Advanced Jumbo Custom Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural resurrects the sophisticated style of the classic model with the addition of modern appointments to make this a truly remarkable instrument. Hand-crafted by the expert luthiers at Gibson, only the finest tonewoods have been selected in the construction of this outstanding model, to ensure the covetous tones of the Advanced Jumbo can be yours for a fraction of the cost of an original 1930s model. Being the forerunner to today’s round-shoulder dreadnoughts, this guitar’s ancestor was something particularly special, with its own style, beautiful tone and high-quality construction; the Gibson Advanced Jumbo Acoustic Guitar brings these elements to today’s flat-top market.
The Gibson Advanced Jumbo Acoustic Guitar is composed of big leaf maple for the body back and sides, and Adirondack red spruce for the top. The big leaf maple works beautifully with the depth and breadth of the jumbo body shape to create a resounding output that is infused with an articulation across the frequency range to guarantee your tone sounds powerful, without having to make sacrifices with regard to quality. The Adirondack red spruce top resonates freely to project the tone generated in the body with maximum efficiency, giving this model a generous dynamic range to play with. The body has been treated to an antique natural finish, allowing to heavenly grain of the tonewoods to be displayed for all the world to admire. Protecting the natural tonewoods is a slender yet resilient coating of nitrocellulose. Complementing that finish, as well as protecting the body top around the underside of the soundhole is a vintage firestripe pickguard.
Solid Mahogany Neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to create a substantial and supportive feel in the hand to inspire confidence as you perform. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 19-frets that are decorated with mother-of-pearl diamond arrow position inlays to guide you along in style.
The headstock is home to the elegant Gibson logo, with an ornate "Custom" inscription on the instantly recognisable bell-shaped truss rod cover. Gibson has employed gold Schaller tuning machines to uphold tuning integrity, which they do so with absolute precision.
L.R. Baggs’ Elements VTC Pickup System
The Gibson Advanced Jumbo Acoustic Guitar is equipped with the L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, which includes a pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp.
