This year’s new 1934 Original Jumbo is a replica inspired by one found in vintage Gibson expert Gary Burnett’s collection. From the red spruce top (sanded to a thinner dimension to match the original), to the heavy, period-correct V profile neck with historic string spacing on the neck and bridge, to the radiant sunburst finish with a classic pear-shaped center that tapers perfectly into a dark, rich deep umber brown edge, the 1934 Original Jumbo aims for elegance and historical accuracy
The 1934 Original Jumbo is hand-made and limited to a run of 100 guitars.
