1957 Gibson Southern Jumbo

Here's an incredibly beautiful guitar with a ruby burst unlike any that I've seen on an SJ before......verges on a tobacco burst but with deep, ruby colour especially on the bottom bout.  As a guitar, it is hot as a rock on a sunny summer day......what a firecracker.  The SJ is voiced by Gibson to be clear, bright but not metallic and responsive.......this example does all of that in spades.  What a rocking instrument !   In lovely condition being all original excluding the tuners which are "not of the period" single line Klusons, it plays real well and has a strength that will really surprise you and take you somewhere you didn't know to go.  A superlative strummer that can handle all types of music and is so beautiful to look at.........the old Gibson !!
