A living legend fixed at the heart of country music gets a signature Gibson.
Gibson is honored to commemorate their association with country music legend Randy Scruggs by introducing the Randy Scruggs Signature jumbo, an elegantly appointed acoustic-electric guitar from the luthiers of Bozeman, Montana. Made to the proportions of the Advanced Jumbo round-shouldered dreadnought, with solid premium Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides, an advanced scalloped X-brace, vintage sunburst finish, and up-market adornments such as abalone trim and rosette and mother-of-pearl fingerboard crowns, the Randy Scruggs signature acoustic guitar packs the one-two punch of looks and tone that make it a fitting testimony to its namesake's achievements. Add to these its bone nut and saddle and a Fishman Matrix pickup system to translate all that stellar tone to the masses, and it's a jumbo guitar primed to take place of pride at the center of a collection, or in the hands of a hardworking artist. Only 100 Gibson Randy Scruggs guitars will be produced, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush purple lining, an owner's manual, and Gibson's Gold Warranty.
Body and Finish
This big-bodied, round-shouldered jumbo guitar is built from the classic tonewood combination of Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides”all solid woods”with a tonally advantageous advanced X-brace made of scalloped spruce braces supporting the top. To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish in vintage sunburst and abalone body trim and soundhole rosette mean the Gibson Randy Scruggs signature guitar looks just as glorious as it sounds.
Neck, Fingerboard and Headstock
The Randy Scruggs guitar's neck and headstock are made much in the tradition of the original Advanced Jumbo, with the 25 1/2" scale length that many players prefer in a large-bodied flat-top. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson's lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the acoustic-electric guitar's resonance and sustain, and the wider dimensions of 1.725" at the nut, as specified by Randy Scruggs himself, and preferred by numerous top-notch country players.
The Gibson Randy Scruggs guitar carries an up-market hardware set, including open-back nickel tuners, and rectangular rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins and bone saddle.
The Randy Scruggs acoustic-electric is protected by a Gibson hardshell guitar case with purple plush lining. Each guitar comes with a Gibson Acoustic owner's manual and a Gibson Gold Warranty.
With a bevy of Grammies, three Country Music Award Musician of the Year titles, and production and songwriting credits to rival any of the most influential names in Nashville, Randy Scruggs' resume practically reads like a history of contemporary country music itself. The son of venerable banjo virtuoso Earl Scruggs, Randy grew up amid Nashville's elite, made his first professional guitar recording at the age of 13, and was a first-call session guitarist and producer before he had left his teen years behind. Put it all together, and Scruggs' heart beats with the pulse of country music”much like that of his beloved Gibson Advanced Jumbo, long the go-to flat-top for Nashville pickers.

Comments about Gibson Randy Scruggs Signature AJ Advanced Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I have been looking to get into a Gibson Acoustic for a long time, then stumbled upon this model a few months ago and have been plotting and scheming for a while now trying to raise the cash to pull the trigger. The quality and workmanship are absolutely TOP NOTCH, not a single flaw! Perfect fit and finish, and it is absolutely beautiful in both sound and appearance. The neck is super comfortable, slim and very easy to play. The sound is deep and rich, just and incredible sounding guitar. Don't be afraid of the word "jumbo", the round shoulders make this as comfortable as a J-45. Haven't plugged in in yet, but I'm sure the simple Fishman set up will sound great.
Joseph at Private Reserve guitars was helpful like always, this is the 2nd guitar I have purchased through him. Do not hesitate buying any instrument through MF, they have the best CS in the business. I'm not really a Scrugg's fan, however I do respec him and his legacy. The look and feel of this guitar is what sold me....only 1 left!
