Play a Piece of Gibson History

The Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo acoustic-electric guitar will take you back to the old glory days of round-shoulder acoustics! Gibson handcrafted this Southern Jumbo to feel, look, and play like it had just left the factory in the 1940s. Dark amber toner, a bone nut and saddle, binding on the fret ends, and other vintage-style features give this brand-new guitar a historical look. A solid spruce top is coupled with solid mahogany back and sides, making the Gibson Southern Jumbo acoustic-electric primed for rich tone.

The Southern Jumbo

Gibson created the Southern Jumbo in the 1940s after a salesman for the southern territory brought home requests for a sturdy, versatile and attractive round-shoulder dreadnought. With elegant inlays, body and fretboard binding, and exquisite "'hog" tone generated by its solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the SJ has become a Gibson classic. This Southern Jumbo retains the late '40's style and appointments that reflect the charm and style of the South.

L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

The Southern Jumbo comes with L.R. Baggs's popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element is a tremendous performer. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's "Battery Bagg."

Quality construction

Expect the best from Gibson Acoustic. The Southern Jumbo boasts a premium solid Sitka spruce top, quality solid mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck, and a fingerboard and bridge made of rosewood. All these elements add up to a guitar that sounds great now, and will only improve over time. Instruments such as the Southern Jumbo are great investments and reliable musical companions that will inspire you for years to come.
