Offered for sale;

Used Gibson c1970 SJN (Southern Jumbo Natural) serial number 917909.

This guitar is in very good condition, it has a couple of repaired cracks, there is some “case rash” behind the 3rd and 8th frets. The neck has been reset with some “touch up” around the heel and the frets have been replaced. There is “finish checking” throughout.

As we get into the 1970s I think many would agree that many Gibson acoustics, while retaining their Gibson sound, started to lose some of the liveliness and resonance that they once had. Not this one. Not quite my 1938 Jumbo 35 but lots of life and bounce.

A very easy guitar to like. Hank Williams would love it.

Hard shell case included.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
