Built in Bozeman, Montana and for the moment out of production, the Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue recreates the sound and feel of the pre-war Mahogany body jumbo. Handcrafted from solid tone woods, the spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce superb tone, deep bass and projection, with the sophisticated look of hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer. The unique, vintage Super Jumbo bridge is inspired by the originals from 1941 and found on only a few models from that time. The simple terraced pick guard in fire stripe nitrocellulose is a replica of the first SJ-100s from 1939. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup, the SJ-100 is ready to respond to whatever performance circumstances demand.Learn More
The Super Jumbo body style appeared in 1938 and is best known for the J-200 model, with Spruce top and Maple for the back and sides, and often highly decorated beyond the hand-painted pickguard. In 1939, the less expensive and less decorated SJ-100 appeared, with a Spruce top, but with Mahogany for the back and sides and with a much plainer – and thinner – pickguard. The fingerboard and bridge are Mahogany, and the SJ-100 has a largish but much simpler bridge than the J-200’s ‘Moustache’ cut out unit.
By 1943, the advent and demands of war ended production for several years. The SJ-100 was not re-launched until small samples started appearing around 1985, and in 2013 the Gibson Acoustic shop in Bozeman, Montana built a number of fairly accurate reproductions, with L R Baggs Element pickup system added.

New old stock Limited Edition Gibson AJ Amber Burst Advanced Jumbo acoustic electric guitar. Built in very small numbers, 1 of 50, the Gibson AJ Amberburst is something of a turbo-charged version of its ever-popular Advanced Jumbo model. The guitar is built with an Adirondack red spruce top and rosewood back and sides, and finished with a great looking amber sunburst to its top. Gold Grover open-back tuners bejewel the headstock, and under the hood you’d find a Trance Audio Amulet pickup system. Gibson put a lot of eggs in the basket that is this guitar, and the pay off to a player is great.Learn More
With its long-scale neck and rosewood back and sides, the AJ is famous for its volume, power, clarity and balance, and this red spruce-topped version lives up to the reputation. It’s a great flatpicker with plenty of horsepower in reserve and lots of Gibson character. Gibson designed the AJ to compete against Martin's D-28, and it does so very well.
Comes with hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.

Here is a 2003 Gibson SJ Custom Shop made with the Holy Grail of tone woods, Brazilian Rosewood. The Southern Jumbo is a workhouse of a guitar beloved by many famous artists...Woodie Guthrie and Hank Williams Jr were both known for loving the model. The Southern Jumbo was born in 1942 with solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides, but the model is more commonly found with the solid mahogany back and sides it carried when it reappeared in 1946. This Brazilian incarnation has been crafted in Bozeman, Montana by Gibson’s lauded acoustic division. Other features of the model include the solid premium Sitka spruce top, 6-ply top binding and 4-ply back binding, nitrocellulose vintage sunburst finish, tortoise Southern Jumbo pickguard, and split-parallelogram mother-of-pearl fingerboard position markers. The Brazilian Rosewood is gorgeous. It has a great feeling neck with a nice medium profile. There is no wear, it is perfect. It is a serious guitar and a great sounding guitar. Okay, as we like to say in the business, now for the kicker: It is signed on the front by country artist, Craig Morgan, how cool is that? This guitar retailed for $12,500 back in 2003. Grab it now for a fraction of that price. Comes with original paperwork and hard shell case.Learn More

I've been aware of this instrument since 1983 when I read an article in Guitar Player magazine by George Gruhn about a 7 string Dobro made by Gibson. I was quite intrigued, as I played Dobro a bit as well. It was a marvel to behold. Now for a little history: CMI was a conglomerate that from 1944 until the mid fifties, owned Gibson and the National Guitar Company. There was a bit of an incestuous relationship between the two companies. It was not uncommon for National to use Gibson bodies, and then use their own necks, hardware, etc. I've seen Gibson J-45 bodies and ES-175 bodies with National parts. The point of this is that there was some intermingling of the two companies. After WWII, National stopped making resonator instruments. However, there was still a demand from traditional Dobro players. Even back then they were searching the pawn shops for used instruments. That brings us back to our Gibson Dobro. It exists, and we have it in our shop. It was possibly a prototype made by Gibson with a vintage National/Dobro resonator. National had a stash of those, and used them in the sixties on some models. So, this guitar was either made as a special order, or as an experimental model. I tend to think it was made for a customer because most prototypes I've seen are somewhat crude - this is not. It is a finished instrument. It is seven strings with four resonator screens. The body is a Gibson Southern Jumbo guitar body. It's bigger than any traditional style Dobro that I've seen. Bigger body, bigger sound; that's how it works. So as just a musical instrument, it's the best sounding Dobro I've ever heard. It's the only one my friends. There is a rumor that two more were made, but it is unsubstantiated. This is about the rarest Gibson on the planet and that is including the elusive, never seen "MODERNE". I've never seen a Moderne in person, but I can look at this guitar anytime I want to. It's clean and nice, showing some light wear, but overall condition is excellent. It's really something. A piece of history - and it can be yours! Comes with vintage hard case.Learn More
