With over two decades of performance, a cross-genre musicality covering pop, rock, folk, country and blues, and performances with everyone from the Rolling Stones and Willie Nelson to Michael Jackson and B.B. King, there can’t be many people more qualified to offer their input on how to better craft one of Gibson’s most versatile workhorses, than Sheryl Crow. With the warm voice of the SJ and the extra bang-for-your-buck projection of the AJ, the Gibson Sheryl Crow Southern Jumbo Supreme Acoustic Guitar with Montana Sunset Burst is an instrument of outstanding beauty.
1942 - Today
From its origins as a tribute to musicians and music coming from south of the Mason-Dixon Line, the original 1942 Southern Jumbo was crafted based on the tradition and culture of the Southern states. It seems fitting that one of the South’s most exemplary modern artists helped to craft what has become the most expressive SJ to date.
Sweet and Powerful
With an incredible balance of sweetness and power, the Montana-built Gibson Sheryl Crow Southern Jumbo Supreme is comprised of an Adirondack red spruce top and mahogany back and sides, whilst scalloped top bracing ensures exceptional resonance and prevents unwanted buckling and warping over time. The depth provided by the mahogany/jumbo-profile partnership is projected with the utmost clarity by the spruce soundboard, making this model perfect for live performers on both the small and the grand stage.
Sounds Great, Looks Great
As well as offering highly nuanced, powerful tones, the Gibson Sheryl Crow Southern Jumbo Supreme acoustic guitar also looks amazing with a design that mirrors such a beautiful voice. The custom hand-sprayed, limited edition Montana Sunset Burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish commands the attention of all who see it, bordered by a multi-ply binding, and accented by a multi-ply double-ring soundhole rosette and custom, polished traditional "Tear Drop" tortoise pickguard.
Giving a level of playability worthy of its ancestry, the body is fitted with a mahogany neck via a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint, which is reinforced using hot hide glue at the 14th. The modified "V" neck profile provides a comfortable anchor point for the thumb of the fretting hand, guaranteeing an enjoyable playing feel along the entirety of its 23 3/4-inch length. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with Mother of Pearl parallelogram position inlays.
The 17-degree back-angled headstock, not only contributes to improved resonance and sustain, but has also been adorned with a classic Gibson pearloid inlays. Nickel Waverly tuners with Ivoroid buttons uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision to guarantee stability throughout each and every performance.
