Mahogany Jumbo (17 ') by Gibson from 1940. The instrument is partially restored, the sunburst top was refinished, as well as the back of the three-piece maple neck. The rosewood fretboard and the frets have been renewed, the bat-wing bridge replaced with an exact copy of the original, as well as the tiger-stripe pick-guard. Back, sides and the black veneered headstock with the inlaid script-logo still have the original finish, play-wear, nicks and dings are visible. A hole in the top, probably drilled for a pickup, was expertly closed. The neck has a pretty fat C-profile, plays very well, action is excellent. For its size, the body is surprisingly lightweight and delivers, due to the long scale, which is particularly suitable for open tunings, a full, warm bass, woody rich mids and brilliant highs. Last but not least responsible for this is the beautifully fine-grained Honduras mahogany used for back and sides, which was probably harvested in the 20ies of the last century and is no longer available in this quality. The guitar comes in a very well fitting and stable TKL hardcase and will only be shipped express and fully insured, no matter where. US-buyers , please contact me before you buy !
