Gurian Guitars / JR Jumbo Acoustic Guitar In Natural / 1977 / Guitar For Sale
Here for sale 1977 Gurian JR Jumbo Acoustic Guitar in Natural. Michael Gurian was a pioneer of the small-scale-production, high-quality guitar shop, and helped show the way for today's generation of boutique guitar manufacturers. After making a few guitars for himself, he set up shop in New York City in the mid-1960s. Eventually, he stopped making guitars which make this a rare find. The guitar features an Indian rosewood back and sides, a spruce top, a mahogany neck, and an ebony fretboard. Scale length measures 25.6", nut width is 42.6mm, and the neck has a comfortably rounded profile. The air volume inside the box is quite substantial giving the guitar its unique tone. It has a fast-playing neck typical of Gurians, and the sustain seems to go on forever. The tone is deep and warm revealing the clarity of each note. The guitar is in good overall condition but has lacquer checking as well as some surface scratches including light buckle wear and general minor marks. At some point, the headstock break was repaired and it's solid (please see photos). Comes with an original hard case and a letter from the maker to the original owner on receipt of the purchase.
