An original 1969 Gibson Southern Jumbo. In good condition for it's age but it does have some cosmetic wear and tear. While it shows signs of use, it is a very well-looked after guitar for it's age, with no serious signs of miss-use or negligence.
This guitar was bought by its previous owner in 1978 who has owned it since.
There is some beautiful crazing in the lacquer and the pick guard is in excellent shape.
Guitar has had a re-fret by local luthier Scott Wise.
It's worth noting that the sound hole label has been removed at some point
and it appears that someone has tried to change the 3 into a 8 on the back of the headstock (see photos)
This particular instrument is an absolute cannon - it's extremely loud and projects like only a vintage acoustic can. It has lovely crisp highs with a well rounded bottom end. This guitar is a shop favourite and it won't last so get in quick.
The Gibson Southern Jumbo model from the mid-to-late 1960s was a rather profound departure from the original model. These guitars featured a more Martin-like square shoulder body shape, and in 1963 had a plastic bridge, many of which have been replaced for better sound. The rosewood bridge was reintroduced in 1964.
Guitar comes with generic non-original hard case.
