About This Listing

1961 Gibson Southern Jumbo (similar to J-45). Very sweet, warm, dry and woody tone, as you’d expect from a vintage Gibson jumbo. Performs equally well with a flatpick or fingerpicked. These are becoming harder to find and, as you’ll see from a search on Reverb and Ebay, they range from $8000-$11000. Plays really easily with recent setup by luthier Daniel Hoban. Loose back braces reglued, new nut and saddle. The guitar has been re-fretted relatively recently so it plays well and holds its tune. The neck is very comfortable. The crack on the soundboard is very stable and has been professionally repaired and supported underneath. Comes with non-original generic hardshell case. More pictures and video clip available upon request with close-ups of the various battle scars!
