In the mid-'30s, Gibson luthiers set about to build the best-sounding, most powerful flat-top acoustic ever. The result was the Advanced Jumbo. Widely known today as one of Gibson' most powerful acoustics, early catalogs proclaimed, "You have never heard a guitar like this ¦ a bass so deep and full that it can be felt as well as heard." The catalog didn't exaggerate. What Gibson' luthiers discovered was a resonance-enhancing, advanced X-bracing pattern that had not been used before. The results were a deeper bass and increased projection.
During the three years the AJ was in its first production run, Gibson made about 300 of them. It wasn't until 1990 that Gibson reintroduced the AJ and their value as a vintage-tone time capsule was recognized. The AJ offers rich harmonics with excellent punch and presence. This model pays tribute to what many consider the ultimate flat-top.
Handcrafted with an Adirondack red spruce top and for the first time, gorgeous big leaf maple back & sides. Finished with a simple, Antique Natural finish. A traditional soundhole rosette, mother-of-pearl diamond and arrow inlays are handset in the rosewood fingerboard and the classic mother-of-pearl script logo with mother-of-pearl vertical diamond and arrow inlay make this limited edition instantly recognizable as a classic.
Limited to only 65 instruments, this limted edition features the added versatility of a built-in L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup with soundhole-mounted volume and tone control. Each guitar includes a signed Certificate of Authenticity, hardshell case with plush-lined interior, an owner's manual, Gibson's Gold Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
Handcrafted by the acclaimed luthiers of Gibson's acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana.
