Gibson 1942 Historic Southern Jumbo, Rosewood & Red Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


There are players out there who proclaim the mighty rosewood dreadnought king of the mountain, but this banner-era replica Southern Jumbo is more than up to the challenge. All of the dry woodiness Gibson is known for is present, but the addition of East Indian rosewood broadens the frequency range to match a pre-war specced D-28. The finish is so thin that it has found the pores of the wood, and the body has just the right amount of wear while remaining structurally sound. If you thought Gibson only played the blues, this bluegrass cannon will surely change your mind.
