Gibson Southern Jumbo Original - Vintage Sunburst with Hard Shell Case

Gibson Southern Jumbo Original: Timeless Southern Charm

Discover the classic charm of the Gibson Southern Jumbo Original in Vintage Sunburst, a guitar that resonates with the musical traditions of the South. Known for its ability to project crisp country rhythms and passionate acoustic blues leads, this model continues the legacy of its historic war-era predecessors, which are among the most coveted flat-tops in today's vintage market.

Elegant Design and Premium Build

The Southern Jumbo Original is distinguished by its J-45 body shape, made from top-quality Sitka spruce for the top and mahogany for the back and sides. The guitar's traditional hand scalloped X-bracing underpins its powerful sound projection and clarity. Featuring classic design elements such as mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays, double antiqued multi-ply top and back binding, and nickel open-back tuners, this guitar epitomizes vintage aesthetics blended with modern craftsmanship.

Playability and Sound Excellence

The mahogany neck with a slim taper profile ensures comfortable playability and fast action along the rosewood fingerboard. The traditional belly-up bridge with holes in the middle and a bone saddle enhance string stability and tonal quality, complementing the guitar's overall warm and rich sound.
