This player-grade 1946 Gibson Southern Jumbo is back for its second stay at TME. It was sold though our shop back in the 80's, when the showroom was down the street in Cambridge. It's been with one owner since then, and has remained unmodified during that time. The sound of this guitar draws in anyone who picks it up: it's big, open, and clear, with the woody chime coveted by everyone in search of a vintage Gibson slope-shouldered dreadnought. For a player interested in tone, this guitar represents a great opportunity to break into the post-Banner, "Script" logo jumbo market.
Condition: player-grade. As in, there are repairs that may affect its retail value but don't compromise its excellent sound. Back when TME had this guitar in the 80's, then-repairman, Tom Stapleton, replaced the bridge and bridge plate. He also glued two top cracks, and several minor back cracks. The tuners have recently been replaced with Stew-Mac "Golden Age" machines. All repairs have been untouched and stable since initially completed. The saddle is as low as it can get, but the action where it should be; and the guitar plays easily. Priced with hard case.
