I was in need of an acoustic guitar for writing songs and studio tracking. I did months of research looking for something that would give me a big full rich sound for my chord strumming and I found it when I first played this guitar. I looked at Taylors, Martins, Takamine's, Gretsch and a few others. I had finally narrowed it down to the Gibson Songwriter and the JS 100 Jumbo. I almost decided on the Songwriter because it had the on board pick ups with treble, bass, mid range controls and the JS 100 doesn't have these controls, just a pick up inside the guitar itself. After playing the Songwriter, then picking up the Jumbo, then the songwriter back and forth...I finally made the right choice...The JS 100 has the volume, the tone and is an excellent strumming guitar. I don't miss having all the other controls at all. I play through a Marshall Acoustic guitar amp and that gives me the treble, mid range, bass controls that I need.Where ever I take this simple beauty people always comment on what a beautiful guitar it is, and when I invite them to play it, they all fall in love, just as I did when I bought it. I like the simplicity of the guitar and the look is pure Gibson classic. No pick guard, no fancy do dads, just great Gibson craftsmanship and a big rich full Gibson sound. This is a traditional looking and sounding guitar and I would recommend to anybody in the market for something that has the qualities I've mentioned here.Put it this way, pick one up, play it and you will know immediately if it's the right choice for you. It's up to you, your ears and your touch! Happy trails to you...
I allways wanted a Jumbo Acoustic Guitar and I finally got one. This is the only guitar I sing with and it is great. I have had a Martin 6 and a 12 string and this is better. I have 16 guitars and 3 other Gibsons, a Les Paul Studio, a SG Standard and a Gibson Bass. This guitar is the best of the 4. My only complaint is you have to take the strings off to put in the battery. The sound this guitar puts out is the best acoustic I have had and I have had many that I have sold over the years.
