Guitar Of The Week:Gibson Acoustic - Advanced Jumbo - The Legendary Pre-War Design!
Gibson Advanced Jumbo Acoustic Guitar
When Gibson originally designed the Advanced Jumbo model in 1935, they set out with the goal to create the best-sounding, most powerful flattop acoustic guitar built to date. Many people today feel that Gibson not only created the best guitar of that era, but created the ultimate flattop acoustic of all time! Built upon their round-shoulder jumbo body shape, the Advanced Jumbo utilizes the very best tonewoods, has a perfectly thought out scalloped X-bracing pattern, and features a 25-½" scale length to provide greater tone and power.
Gibson's catalog of 1937 said it best when it accurately described the qualities of this amazing acoustic: "Do you like a deep, throaty guitar- one that has a bass so deep, rich, and full that it can be "felt" as well as heard- and treble that responds to the bass with harmonious singing brilliancy? The new Advanced Jumbo is that guitar!" Thankfully, Gibson Montana brought back the Advanced Jumbo in the 1990s after carefully recreating all of the details of a vintage original. Built by their master craftsmen, this gives new generations of guitarists the opportunity to own one of most authoritative acoustic guitar designs ever made, with a tonal richness that is second to none.
