2015 Gibson Southern Jumbo Custom Shop – £2299

SOLD  The Southern Jumbo hasn’t been in production as a standard model for quite a while now, so whenever Gibson produce a limited run version, or in this case a Custom Shop version, they’re usually pretty special. There’s no one thing you can point your finger at that make it a better instrument than a standard model, but everything about it is just better feeling, better sounding, and better put together. This guitar is in well played condition, with several scuffs and a chip out of one corner of the headstock, but sounds all the better for it, already sounding quite mature and complex. The looks are classic too, just another example of Gibson history being so important. The guitar plays fantastically, has an active pickup system fitted with tone and volume controls mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original embossed hard case.
