A Super Jumbo Filled with Tradition!
Part of the Gibson Super Jumbo family, the J-100 Xtra is modeled after the SJ-100 of the 1930s and has become a favorite of artists of all styles.
The J-100 Xtra features a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped bracing and bubinga back and sides, which deliver a thundering bottom end and a warm midrange response. Though not quite as fancy as its famous cousin, the J-200, the J-100 Xtra certainly represents the elegant power of Gibson's Super Jumbo acoustics.Gibson J-100 Xtra Acoustic/Electric Guitar Features:

Gibson: Don't Mess with a Good Thing
Gibson guitars have been around for well over a century. When guitarists are looking for an outstanding combination of superb tone and playability along with great looks and gorgeous finishes, the choice for most of those 100 plus years has been Gibson. From their amazing collection of fine acoustics to the electric guitars that literally rewrote music history, Gibson guitars have been on almost every chart-topping album from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream and Led Zeppelin. These "first call" instruments also cross an enormous array of diverse styles, from folk and country to blues and hard rock. With that resume, it's not surprising that so many of Gibson's best-selling instruments have changed little over the decades. Because there's just no sense in messing with a good thing!
