2015 Gibson Custom Shop Advanced Jumbo Luthiers Choice Guitar(Serial No. 10825028) Mint unplayed condition. This is a limited edition Custom Shop AJ. The label reads AJ Luthiers Choice and it has the custom shop logo at the base of the peghead on the back. I think the Advanced Jumbo is the best modern flat top guitar Gibson makes. I've played a lot of them, and they all seem to have a good sound. This one fits that description. Its a big powerhouse dradnaught that will work well for bluegrass, fiddle back up, or singer songwriter. Its a 14 fret slope shoulder dreadnaught, 16 inches wide, lighter sunburst finish on a red spruce (Adirondack) top, braces glued with hide glue for maximum response, dark natural finish on Indian (Mystic in the sales literature) rosewood back and sides, rosewood bridge, bound rosewood fretboard with chevron inlays, 1 3/4 inch nut, 25 1/2 inch scale, rosewood headstock overlay features chevron and logo inlays, and Grover vintage style open gear tuners. Fitted with a L.R. Baggs Element VTC undersaddle pickup and enpin jack. Big sound and good bass, even though it looks pretty much unplayed. Here is a short video clip of this guitar played by luthier Richie Dotson of Acoustic Box LLC in Chesterfield, VA. Very clean guitar - anything that looks like an inperfection is a reflection. Comes with the very clean original Gibson hard shell case.
