The Gibson Acoustic 2016 Advanced Jumbo Flame Deluxe Electro Acoustic Guitar in Antique Natural captures the breath-taking sophistication of the original model alongside a subtle and simplistic visual aesthetic. Modern appointments are employed throughout to guarantee absolute stability during this model's lifetime, so you can rest assured that for as long as you're able to play, your Advanced Jumbo will be right there with you.
The Gibson Acoustic team has pored over every detail to ensure this 2016 model does justice to the Gibson name. Hand-crafted by expert luthiers, the body takes on the round shoulder-style dreadnought body shape, which affords a comfortable playing feel to the guitarist, with greater intimacy during performances.
Built using flame maple for the back and sides, the Advanced Jumbo produces a hearty midrange energy that pops with a confident brightness. The top is crafted from Sitka spruce, which is a highly resonant tonewood that projects the timbre of this delightful acoustic with the utmost clarity. Scalloped X-bracing reinforces the body top, enabling it to resonate freely without succumbing to buckling or warping over time. The natural finish of the tonewoods is enhanced by an antique stain that is protected by a resilient layer of nitrocellulose lacquer. Complementing that finish, as well as protecting the body top around the underside of the soundhole is a vintage firestripe pickguard. Multi-ply binding seals the top.
Solid Mahogany Neck
Married to the body is a solid and reliable mahogany neck, which is shaped with care to establish a substantial and supportive feel in the hand. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 19-frets that are decorated with abalone diamond arrow position inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard is shaped to a 12-inch radius, which yields to string bends to allow a smooth and fluid motion for marvellous execution.
The headstock is home to the elegant Gibson logo, with an ornate diamond arrow inlay to match those on the fingerboard. Gibson has employed gold open-back Schaller tuning machines to uphold tuning integrity, which they do so with absolute precision. The bone nut works closely with the tuning machines to maintain string tension throughout the most enthusiastic of performances.
The body is home to a Tusq saddle, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for a steadfast feel, optimising intonation and sustain in the process.
L.R. Baggs’ Elements VTC Pickup System
The Gibson Acoustic 2016 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. The system is designed to smoothly deliver the acoustic timbre via an amplifier with absolute transparency. The richness and depth of tone, coupled with an immaculate dynamic response, equates to a faithful representation of your guitar, and your playing skills. 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.
