The "Folk" Model, Jumbo Version
Spruce and Maple
Lightly Built thus Big Sound
Wide, Thin Neck with Flat Fingerboard
Probably Gibson's best sounding (by far!) guitar of the period, and extremely rare. They called it their Folk model, able to be strung with steel or nylon strings with a two inch wide, 12-fret classical style neck and extra light bracing. We needn't concern ourselves with the idea of nylon strings - that was mere marketing or misinformed makers. One unique feature is the maple back & sides, and with the lighter construction it gives an unusual and very beautiful tone, unlike any other Gibson.
Our "Cash price" policy: unfortunately, the credit card companies support "swiped" charges in which the card is physically run through the card reader. Phone-in charges are charged at a much higher rate (to the seller) which can take quite a big chunk out of a high-dollar sale. Thus, for those call-in sales, let's discuss the issue at the time; hopefully, we can figure some way to deal with it.
