Gibson Southern Jumbo SJ "Banner Logo" 1942 - 1945

Featured Listing


The first run of Gibson Southern Jumbo guitars (sometimes abbreviated as SJ) with "Only a Gibson is Good Enough" banner logo on the headstock are truly stunning, highly collectable instruments. These wartime guitars can vary a bit in materials due to shortages for some materials, so some examples may have a laminated maple neck or a mahogany top rather than the spruce that defined the model throughout its life.
