Gibson FJN Natural #152840 1963 “ Folk Singer” Beautiful conditions 100% Original, Square shouldered body of Honduras mahogany back and sides and selected natural spruce top. Brazilian rosewood classic width fingerboard with parallel double inlays and multiple white/black/with binding. Neck of Peruvian Mahogany. Nut width 51mm. Comes in the Original semi hard case.
Created for the folk boom of the early 1960’s, the Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural Finish has a few differences from Gibson’s regular dreadnoughts. While it uses the Jumbo body size found on guitars like the SJ, the FJN has a wide 12-fret neck – the nut is nearly 2 inches wide – and is braced for nylon, Silk & Steel, or very light steel strings. Interest in the FJN faded with the folk boom, and by 1967 the FJN was taken out of production.
This Gibson FJN example was built during 1963 at the original Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. For all its differences, its construction follows the same pattern as many of Gibson’s other successful models. The top is Sitka Spruce, with Mahogany for the body blocks, sides, back and neck. The nearly-flat, 12-fret fingerboard and bridge are Rosewood, and at that time this meant Brazilian Rosewood. The position markers are the split-parallelogram design used on other higher end Gibson models.
