Gibson Southern Jumbo (SJ) 1947 – this guitar has a great sunburst finish and sounds like a cannon!
In the time after the second world war Gibson produced guitars on a very high level. Handcrafted with the best materials and in small numbers – in expert and collector’s circles these guitars are much sought after and deserved to be so.
The Gibson SJ has a spruce top with mahogany for back, sides and neck.
The finish of this model is a dark sunburst, which was the most famous Gibson finish at that time. It has the inlays and decorations typical for this model.
This Gibson SJ 1947 sounds great – There really is nothing quite like that vintage Gibson tone and this is a prime representation of what all the commotion is about. Strong, woody basses and crisp, cutting trebles combine with bold, bawdy mids for that quintessential Gibson sound.
The guitar is a lightweight and has this bouncy reponse. The woods vibrate incredibly good and give this beautiful guitar a very charming woody sound.
It is in a good and original vintage condition. It has just a small repaired crack on the back (very professionally repaired).
It has received a neck reset and the action is pleasantly low. It plays incredibly well and it is a lot of fun to play this guitar!
It comes with a newer Gibson case.
