Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 2013 Gibson SJ-100 Acoustic/Electric Super Jumbo Guitar with a Vintage Sunburst Finish! Built in Bozeman, Montana and for the moment out of production, the Gibson SJ-100 recreates the sound and feel of the pre-war Mahogany body jumbo. The Super Jumbo body style appeared in 1938 and is best known for the J-200 model, with Spruce top and Maple for the back and sides. In 1939, the less expensive and less decorated SJ-100 appeared, with a Spruce top, but with Mahogany for the back and sides and with a much plainer – and thinner – pickguard. The fingerboard and bridge are Mahogany, and the SJ-100 has a largish but much simpler bridge than the J-200’s ‘Moustache’ cut out unit. By 1943, the advent and demands of war ended production for several years. The SJ-100 was not re-launched until small samples started appearing around 1985 and in 2013 the Gibson Acoustic shop in Bozeman, Montana built a number of fairly accurate reproductions, with L R Baggs pickup systems added. This is a very nice guitar to play. It’s got a warm, full and well articulated sound, with plenty of projection and handles being played softly or enthusiastically equally well. The scale length is unusual for Gibson at 25.25 inches, increasing tension but not as much as full-scale dreadnaughts. Excellent Shape with many micro marks on the body and headstock, a few tiny indents and scuffs inn the body, a touch up on the back body and a couple minor touch ups on the top edge of the headstock, easy 9/10! No Pickguard. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs. All of our guitars are fitted with a fresh set of our favorite strings by Stringjoy!
