The Gibson 2018 Southern Jumbo Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Sunburst resurrects the awesome energy of the classic war-era flat-top, bringing the same joyous playing experience to today's performers. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep your model in pristine condition, whilst allowing you to get out on the road in style.
Sophisticated round-shoulder design
The Southern Jumbo is crafted to a classic round-shoulder dreadnought body shape, which gives it a superb blend of playability and durability. The large lower bout allows the mahogany tonewood to generate substantial energy, giving the Southern Jumbo a hearty voice for which it is so beloved.
Paired with the mahogany is a Sitka spruce top, which provides a confident soundboard that resonates freely to produce a generous dynamic range. The spruce ensures that upper mids and high-end clarity is maintained, no matter how hard you strike the strings, establishing a well-rounded output.
The body is finished in a visually stunning vintage sunburst, which is protected by a resilient layer of nitrocellulose to ensure that your Southern Jumbo ages gracefully. The 50's shape pickguard is an elegant addition that provides protection to the underside of the soundhole.
Sturdy mahogany neck
Joined to the body - via a solid compound dovetail neck-to-body joint - is a sturdy mahogany neck. Shaped to the slim taper profile, the neck is a joy to wield and allows the hand to glide effortlessly along its length. Partnered with the neck is a glorious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are decorated with mother-of-pearl parallelograms to guide your way in style.
L.R. Baggs Elements VTC Pickup System
The Gibson 2018 Southern Jumbo is equipped with the L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, which includes a pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp. The system translates the acoustic timbre of the Sothern Jumbo beautifully, capturing the subtle nuances of your performance when played plugged in to an amp.
The soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls allow you to control your output discreetly, whilst the built-in low frequency crossover prevents any unwanted low-end grunt from over-powering your signal and allows the natural timbre of the Southern Jumbo to sing with the utmost clarity.
Fitted to the headstock you'll find Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. The Tusq nut at the top of the neck maintains string spacing and tension, whilst the traditional belly-up rosewood bridge creates a seamless connection between strings and body.
