Amazing tone, warmth, and resonance, are exemplified in this vintage Gibson 1954 Southern Jumbo Acoustic Guitar. Owned by Michael Landau with a pro neck reset and refret by Mike DeTemple. Structurally sound and in Very Good Condition. With a Mahogany Back & Sides, and Spruce Top; this is an exceptional acoustic. It also has a strong bass without being muddy, and clear and bright mids & highs; all in all - a superbly balanced tone. It has the original finish but has been refretted in the past.
"Gibson introduced the Southern Jumbo also known as the Southerner Jumbo or SJ guitar in 1942, as a more "deluxe" version of its popular but plain J-45 model. It featured a sunburst spruce top, mahogany back and sides (a few rare early examples had rosewood back and sides, or rosewood sides only), rosewood bridge and fingerboard, with Gibson's "deluxe" split parallelogram pearl inlays. From 1947 onwards the model also featured a white bound fingerboard, in contrast to the plain (unbound) fingerboard of the cheaper J-45 and its sister (natural finish) J-50 instrument."
