      Gibson AJ Advanced Jumbo Guitar (517666)

True to its 1936 design specs.

A re-creation of the limited-production original that has been a collector's item since the late '30s. Features a hand-selected Sitka spruce top; '30s-style rosewood open-slot vintage bridge; mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, inlaid mother-of-pearl arrows, and Gibson logo; vintage firestripe pickguard; and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. Its notable tone and projection are credited to special top bracing, its long scale, and sloped-shoulder body. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

  • "Southern Belle\

    As reviewed by ToneMan on 10/16/2006

    This guitar rings like a bell and sustains for days! I auditioned the Taylors, Breedloves & Martins-all costing more but none having THE TONE like this Gibson. Sure, the others sounded nice and some were more ornate, but this elegant instrument is so evenly well voiced I had to have her. No regrets for this southern belle

  • Best I have owned

    As reviewed by PB on 2/19/2007

    I have had a Martin D35 for a while and was looking for a second guitar. I played a lot in the quest and just fell in love with this Gibson. Great action, tone, and sustain. So many things I play now actually sound like the original recordings. I'm not a great player, but I love the sound. This guitar has re-inspired me to play more and more... I think I got a good deal at my local Guitar Center, and no pressure to buy. Good transaction, great guitar.

  • Great Sound, Loud

    As reviewed by Georgiahunt on 1/8/2007

    At first it was going to be an D28. Then I picked up a J45. I wanted to make the right decision so I debated over the D28, J45 and Advanced Jumbo. Finally, I chose the AJ because the neck felt good, and it seemed like there was a lot more sound when I was fingerpicking. I also love the pickguard on the AJ.
