1942 Banner Southern Jumbo The SJ from Back in the Day

The Custom Shop Historic Reissue 1942 Banner Southern Jumbo features the vibe of a vintage Gibson Acoustic. The Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top and rosewood back and sides have outstanding tonal response and superior playability. At home playing first position chords or picking lead blues licks, the Southern Jumbo is a versatile instrument. Proudly displaying the “Only a Gibson is Good Enough” banner on the headstock, this custom instrument also includes an open slot bridge, a bone saddle and nut, and the classic 1.77″ nut width.
