Comments This is a new model from Gibson, finally being released after some years of development and prototyping with Jackson Browne. Based on the 1930’s deep jumbo Roy Smeck models, this guitar has a massive sound, huge projection, and a full, clearly articulated tone. The 12-fret neck design moves the bridge closer to the center of the top, getting every bit of sound out of the guitar.
Sadly, due to recent changes to CITES regulations, we are not able to ship rosewood (on fingerboards or any other part of the guitar) out of the domestic United States of America. But we offer free, reliable, and fast shipping to all 50 states. If you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact us via our website ( a while new look coming soon!) Give us a call if you have questions. If any gear arrives in a condition other than advertised, we will offer a full refund. We're in business to stay in business!
