Reborn into the 21st century, the legendary instrument from the golden age of acoustic guitars, the Southern Jumbo is back from the bone yard with it’s signature style of belting out country rhythm and acoustic blues, while retaining an understated elegance, new vintage style, all with a more affordable price.
Using an iconic dreadnought shape, contructed from a mahogany back and sides and a sitka spruce top, the Gibson Southern Jumbo Modern Classic provides unrivalled resonance and clarity. Offering rich, warm tones and a body material that matures with age, Gibson provides a beautiful guitar to grow old with.
All acoustic guitars manufactured by Gibson feature inner bracing, a way of adding more depth and tone to any acoustic guitar. Using a Gibson 1930’s Advanced X-Braced Top bracing, the Southern Jumbo provides greater dynamics, as the bracing projects sound forward toward the sound hole, meaning you can easily be heard over a crowd.
The Gibson Southern Jumbo Modern Classic Acoustic Guitar uses a mahogany V profile neck, offering a smooth and comfortable playing experience, and carefully crafted neck profile that accentuates the playing styles of blues and country. The sleek rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets and ¼” Mother of Pearl Parallelogram inlays provide fluid transitioning and maximum player comfort.
The headstock of the Gibson Southern Jumbo uses the traditional angled style with a gold script and banner Gibson decal. Gotoh machine heads have been fitted to the headstock in a 3-a-side formation, offering precise and accurate tuning with an impressive 14:1 gear ratio.
Further adding to the sophistication of the Southern Jumbo is the 50’s style pickguard, hand-crafted with a tortoise shell finish. The Vintage Sunburst finish is hand-sprayed and sealed with a Nitrocellulose Lacquer, a careful process that preserves the beautiful finish and adds a unique shine to this beautiful instrument.
