    Gibson Advanced Jumbo: Will Not Dissappoint

    In my experience, this guitar has been amazing, I have owned it for one year and will own it until I die. I am very impressed by the balanced sound that it produces. No other guitar has matched it in that fact. The highs, mids, and lows all blend together perfect and I can tell a difference in this guitar and others I have owned in that respect. It excels in many genres that I play. It is great for country, gospel, blues, and folk style music. It is an exceptional guitar.
    I feel that this guitar has great features. It has beautiful inlays on the neck as well as on the headstock. The white binding really makes the sunburst top shine. The action of the guitar is very playable; it is not too high to play easily and also not so low that you can't tune down a bit and still have no fret buzz. However, it is not equipped with a pickup and that has become essential when playing live.
    The guitar is high quality. It is American made, built with very beautiful wood, and had no blemishes whatsoever when I purchased the guitar. It is also holding up very well to the normal abuse of performing. Very great craftmanship from Gibson.
    This guitar is a great value. The price may seem a bit high but when you play this acoustic you can definately see that the price is justified. The joy of playing this guitar is no doubt worth paying a higher price for.

    Gibson's version of a D-28 with a few differences

    No ebony on this guitar, as Gibson opts for rosewood fingerboard & bridge. Has stronger mid/hi range. More jangly. Poor set-up out of the case, but easy to adjust....Read complete review

    No ebony on this guitar, as Gibson opts for rosewood fingerboard & bridge. Has stronger mid/hi range. More jangly. Poor set-up out of the case, but easy to adjust. Just be sure you will have some adjustment left in the saddle. You experienced acoustic owners will know what I mean. I was really impressed with the playability of this guitar & feel it would be excellant choice for a mainly electric guitarist. It does not sound like a Martin but I'm glad because I own a Martin. OK, so my only complaints are poor set-up from factory & cheap tuners, at this price Waverlys are expected, not cheap Gotohs.

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      Looking for an acoustic guitar with style, superior craftsmanship and amazing sound projection? Look no further because this guitar is fantastic! This pure acoustic Gibson has a beautifully unique balanced sound. My Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo has a huge lyrical voice. It sings! The beauty of the craftsmanship tells me that this guitar will be around for decades. Always stays in tune and it is pure joy to play. This was a sound I have been looking for since I started playing in the early 1960's. Well done, well done to the Gibson Craftsmen at the Bozeman, Montana USA!

      Died and gone to heaven

      By James Ross

      from Grand Rapids MI

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      I ,was so suprised at this guitar I have owned about 10 different acoustics 2 Breedloves , 2 Martins, Ibanez, a Taylor a Guild,etc., by far this exceeds them all of all my other guitars I still really admire my Taylor. But the high and low end brovado of this AJ out does them all real easy action.Mind you though I paid twice what I paid for all the other axes I own. but I cannot stress how well worth it was. I been playing 45 years and I doubt Iwill ever need to buy another.

      By vincent dipietro

      from new york

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      Overall this is a fine guitar.Due to its unique sound it is definitely a keeper.
      Its a very well built acoustic .It is also lighter than the other guitars I own hd28-j185.I'm not crazy about the sunburst finish on acoustic guitars. But it looks really good on this one.And the gotoh tuners work fine . I especially like the arrow markers on the fret board.
      I gave it an eight because of the light weight of the guitar. It seems to make it feel very delicate.But thats just my opinion.
      The sound of this guitar is excellent. You feel like its amplified. It doesn't take much to get it going.My only complaint is the finish on this guitar has a tendency to feel sticky when your playing.I try to wear a long sleeve shirt .Or something to protect the the finish.

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      Im 19, I have no bills to pay, my next years position will pay well and I will own this guitar. I am not a big fan of the Gibson Acoustic sound but the way this guitar played, the way it rested on my lap and the sound that was easy to work with just grabbed my heart.

      My favorite guitar

      By Pete-j4aXD

      from Connecticut shoreline area

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      My Advanced Jumbo is from December 2008. I bought it in August 2009, so I've had it almost a year. It was a little stiff sounding at first, but getting played as much as it does, it's really woken up. In 40 years of playing and owning (and selling) untold dozens of Gibson and Fender guitars, including several sought-after vintage pieces, the Gibson Advanced Jumbo is one of my favorite guitars of all of them, if not my all-time favorite. I gig often, both electric and acoustic gigs, and I play better on the AJ than any other guitar I own. It's great for fingerpicking, flatpicking, single note soloing. I can rip on the AJ as if I was tearing it up on a Telecaster. In a way, it's the Telecaster of acoustic guitars?very direct, in your face tone, not too bassy, with just the perfect amount of mids and treble. It works very well in a band mix. I have a custom shop J-45 Adi/Bubinga that has a sweeter tone, but for gigging, the AJ is IT! Highly recommended.

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      I went in committed to buying a Martin, and I came out owning the Advanced Jumbo. Others have already outlined the incredible sound of this guitar, so I will just say that in the three months I have owned this guitar I am a better player because this guitar makes me want to improve. You will not be dissapointed.

      The best high end guitar under 3K

      By Dr. V-eIdxY

      from Huntington Beach, CA

      Comments about Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar:

      Gibson and its low price subsidiary Epiphone make several models with their signature sunburst top. Don't be fooled, they are NOT all equal. The Gibson J-45 is probably the most famous and popular of these models and is a fine guitar. The primary difference between the J-45 and the Advanced Jumbo is that the AJ has rosewood back and sides compared to mahogany for the J-45. This gives the AJ a much richer sound and the bottom end of a Martin while retaining the shimmering highs for which Gibson is best known. The guitar looks as beautiful as it sounds too. I know some people complain about the Gotoh tuners, but they have performed perfectly for me and my local luthier says they're fine. This is a rare guitar and harder to find than most Gibsons. If you don't believe me you can watch Steve Earle play "Folsom Prison Blues" with his AJ on YouTube!
