An acoustic-electric perfect for belting out country rhythms or acoustic blues leads.

The Gibson Southern Jumbo Original acoustic-electric guitar revives a classic jumbo body shape with authentic vintage styling. With its Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, this guitar produces a balanced tone that works well for a variety of musical genres. The slim mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard provide comfortable playability. An LR Baggs undersaddle pickup system allows you to plug in for amplified performances. Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana using premium tonewoods, the Southern Jumbo Original carries on the legacy of Gibson's historic jumbo models.

Classic Jumbo Body Style Evokes Vintage Gibson Acoustics

With its large jumbo body shape, the Southern Jumbo Original acoustic-electric guitar authentically recreates the look and feel of Gibson's vintage jumbo models. The body's generous size produces a bold, projecting tone perfect for blues, country, rock and more. Vintage-inspired appointments like the antique multi-ply binding and nickel open-back tuners complete the old-school vibe. Whether recording in the studio or performing live, the Southern Jumbo Original lets you channel the classic Gibson jumbo experience.

Spruce and Mahogany Tonewoods Create a Balanced Sound

The Southern Jumbo Original is constructed with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The crisp, articulate tones of the spruce blend beautifully with the warm, rich voice of the mahogany. Together, these premium tonewoods create a balanced sound across the tonal spectrum - great for both flatpicking and fingerstyle playing. The mahogany also adds vintage-style flavor that complements the Southern Jumbo Original's old-school design.

Slim and Comfortable Neck Profile Enhances Playability

With its slim mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard, the Southern Jumbo Original acoustic-electric guitar feels smooth and comfortable in your hands. The slim profile provides an easy playing feel, while the rosewood fingerboard brings out clear, defined notes. Whether you're a veteran player or just starting out, you'll find the Southern Jumbo Original's neck to be inviting and enjoyable to play for extended periods.

Undersaddle Pickup Amplifies Your Sound

The LR Baggs undersaddle pickup system lets you plug the Southern Jumbo Original into an amplifier or PA system for live gigs or recording sessions. The pickup accurately captures the guitar's natural acoustic tone, with volume and tone controls right on the guitar. Just plug in and you're ready to amplify this vintage-inspired Gibson. Take your jumbo tone from the studio to the stage with the Southern Jumbo Original.
