The Gibson Acoustic-Electric Jackson Browne Model is a true collaboration between the artist and the guitar maker and is inspired by Gibson's fabulous Jumbo body design of the 1930's.

Jackson worked with Gibson Montana for 5 years perfecting this "round shoulder" Jumbo. He desired to create for upcoming generations of musicians the best acoustic guitar available ” made by Gibson ” with no modern "compromise" or shortcuts in construction, design, and features. This guitar would deliver the most natural and magical "tone quality" & superior live performance capability anywhere on this planet.

The Gibson Jackson Browne Model design is based on the Gibson acoustic guitars Jackson has been performing with for over a decade ” that have left his audiences in awe of his natural acoustic tone on the big stage.

Its internal acoustic-electric pickup and preamp system from Trance Audio is handmade and offers unparalleled reproduction of the guitar sound when plugged in and amplified.

The Trance Audio Amulet:
True Stereo Guitar Pickup System

The Amulet is a true-stereo acoustic guitar pickup and preamplifier system designed for the professional or semi-professional musician who is not satisfied with traditional saddle or magnetic pickups. The Amulet system utilizes two of Trance Audio's Acoustic Lens T3 transducers which are mounted to the soundboard on the inside of the guitar. The Acoustic Lens accurately reproduces the warm, woody textures generated by the guitar's soundboard.

Alternative pickup arrangements are also supported - the Amulet can be configured to support magnetic pickups or other transducers. An internal stereo preamp boosts the signal at the guitar and outputs a low impedance signal, allowing long cable runs without loss of fidelity. The compact control unit at the other end of the cable presents a stereo or mono signal to your mixer or amplifier. A high quality, user- selectable low cut filter is included to concentrate and focus the low end power of the Acoustic Lens for smaller speaker systems and amplifiers. The carefully engineered reponse eliminates unwanted low frequencies without removing any of the low end power of your guitar, even on instruments that are tuned far below standard pitch.

Trance Audio Lens Pickup
The Acoustic Lens represents the state-of-the-art in pickups for the acoustic guitar. Its unique Triaxial Transducer Technology (T3) allows it to sense vibration in all three physical planes (horizontal, vertical and lateral), and sums them in stereo to produce an incredibly accurate "sonic picture" of the Jackson Browne Model A's soundboard.

This ultra-sensitive transducer excels at reproducing the warm, woody character of the guitar, coupled with the essential sounds of the body and neck, which most saddle tranducers simply ignore. The Acoustic Lens has been favorably compared to a high-quality microphone, but without all the hassles. You get the same great sound time after time while being free to move about the stage or studio.

The Acoustic Lens is mounted internal to the acoustic guitar beneath the saddle. A special adhesive is used which does not damage the guitar in any way and can be removed later if so desired.

    Comments about Gibson Jackson Browne Model A Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Guitar is fantastic but buy the pickup system from Trance Audio and save a $1000. Price difference doesn't make since. Balanced sound on this guitar is incredible.I'd have to say it is stronger as a strummer than a finger picker without the pickup but wow what a sound.
