Gibson / Advanced Jumbo / 2006 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
The Advanced Jumbo is a fine example of why Gibson’s reissue series is so important. The AJ was first introduced in the 1930’s, and only 300 were made. So very few people will ever have the privilege of playing one. When Gibson reintroduced the model on 1990, it made the very rare model available for everyone. It’s a very important model in the Gibson arsenal, being a slope shouldered dreadnought with Rosewood back and sides and and advanced X bracing pattern. This means that the guitar is capable of producing great volume with a thunderous bass, and great articulation. Plus the looks are just stunning - a beautiful tobacco burst with firestripe pickguard, vertical diamond and arrow fingerboard inlays, and a Script logo on the headstock. The guitar is in excellent condition, with just light signs of wear on the neck, and has a Fishman soundhole pickup fitted. The guitar comes in it’s original Gibson embossed hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
