1957 Gibson Southerner Jumbo Guitar
(FON U3285 22) Excellent condition. Fabulous sounding guitar that really nails the Gibson midrangy dreadnaught sound. Natural top finish, Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, Brazilian bound rosewood fretboard with double parallelogram inlays and Brazilian bridge, and seven layers of top binding. The Kluson tuners are original with (I think) new aged buttons. The frets are in good shape and the neck is straight. Original finish and hardware. The bridge plate is replaced with a well done rosewood replacement. Has the usual nicks and dings of a well loved guitar. Plays great with a nice low action as the guitar was set up by my luthier. Has a nice big open woody sound with strong volume and good midrange - exactly what you are looking for in a slope shoulder Gibson dread.

Comes with a newer hardshell case or the original gator print cardboard case - your choice.
