Gibson / Southern Jumbo SJ Sunburst / 1952 / Guitar

1952 Gibson Southern jumbo in sunburst, in really very good, excellent vintage condition, with original sunburst. Featuring mahogany back and sides with spruce top, SJ style multi-bonded top, bound back, original pickguard, double parallelogram fingerboard inlays that still hold the original frets. The guitar has never had a neck reset, and does not need it for the time being, given the large amount of saddle on the original bridge. Bound rosewood fingerboard with original frets, sunburst finish, the neck is a comfortable medium profile C-shaped neck, typical of the 1950s which are among the best sounding guitars from the SJ legacy to my taste, full, dynamic, warm, rich and beautiful as accompaniment instrument. The typical Gibson dry woody tone character is of course unmistakable and only found in old Gibson guitars, a magical experience for me every time I pick them up. And this is a winner for sure. We have re-glued some Braces, but otherwise it is a guitar without issues and with a magical sound, the case is typical of the fifties, but not original Gibson Specifications Body Shape: Slope Shoulder Jumbo Finish: Sunburst Dimensions: Lower bout : 40.6 cm - 16″  Depth        : 12.5 cm - 4 15/16" Body Material: Honduran Mahogany Top Material: Spruce Handedness: Right Body Details: Cream binding, multistripe trim, tortoise pickguard.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
