Gibson / '46~'47 Southern Jumbo Script / 1940's / Guitar For Sale

This is a superb piece of equipment with excellent playability as well as rarity.

The Southern Jumbo was introduced in 1942 as the top-of-the-line model of the time, replacing the J-55, which was the top model of the J series.
It was built with the best materials available at the time, and was named "Southern Jumbo" ("Southern" in the US means "tradition", "romance", and "nostalgia").
The body size is almost the same as the Advanced Jumbo, but the double parallelogram position marks, cell binding on the fingerboard, and multiple body trim give this model a solid sense of originality and luxury.
It is also known to have been used by Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie, but in Japan, its existence was brought to the attention of Japanese young people when Masayoshi Yamazaki used it, and now it is known as a popular model along with the J-45.

This one is a rare script logo Southern Jumbo.
This is a rare script logo Southern Jumbo with no Factory Order Number, but the specifications suggest that it was made in '46 or '47.

Tapered head
No binding neck
Upper belly bridge
Long saddle.

The neck grip is thick, but it has been adjusted firmly and is in a very playable condition.

It is a guitar that has a good rise in sound and has a wide range of sounds from delicate and clean to rough and wild.
If you're looking for an old Gibson that's not only rare, but also highly practical, this is the one for you!
Please spend a blissful time.
