1965 Gibson Southern Jumbo – £2599

ON HOLD  For me this is one of the most iconic looking Gibson acoustic guitars – a square shouldered dreadnought with a three point tortoiseshell pickguard, a dark sunburst top, and eye catching pearl split parallelogram fingerboard inlays. Also it’s unusual to see such a beautifully figured Mahogany back. This guitar has all the unmistakable characteristics of a 60’s Gibson dreadnought which makes them sound so familiar, when you start playing your mind starts racing as it sounds like so many of the great 60’s recordings – mellow, smooth, warm and rich. The bound neck makes it feel very easy to play – 1 11/16” rather than the skinny necks of the late 60’s – and the action is set just right. The guitar is in good condition, with three tightly repaired top cracks, plus a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.

2006 Gibson Advanced Jumbo – £2199

NEW ARRIVAL  The Advanced Jumbo is a fine example of why Gibson’s reissue series is so important. The AJ was first introduced in the 1930’s, and only 300 were made. So very few people will ever have the privilege of playing one. When Gibson reintroduced the model on...
