We just brought this Gibson Southern Jumbo along with an L-00, both from the Original Series.  After spending some time on both, I just don't see how or why such a great looking, sounding, and playing guitar would be available for the prices they're offered for when new.  Luckily for you, that means that a used one is an even better deal!

Using the word Used for this guitar is a bit of a stretch.  It looks new when you walk up and stare at it.  There are some signs of handling, but there are no dings and only very light pick swirl on the pickguard.

The guitar is light and responsive.  It plays perfectly.  The action is just right and the full, new saddle is there to allow for ages of action adjustment.  We ran the guitar through our process just as we would any vintage guitar, checking the truss rod to find that there is plenty of room for future neck relief adjustment.

The factory LR Baggs VTC system is an added bonus that makes this a must-buy guitar.

Original case and paperwork included.

Some internet speak on the SJ:

Whether you’re belting out country rhythms or acoustic blues leads, the Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo Original will deliver the goods. Derived from the war-era’s most prized flattops, this acoustic-electric guitar yields the perfect blend of punchiness, mid-forward projection, and tasty harmonic overtones. And its flexible dynamics ensure that everything from gentle fingerpicking to heavy strumming sounds amazing. You’ll appreciate the playability of the Southern Jumbo Original’s rosewood-capped mahogany neck, while LR Baggs VTC electronics ensure top-shelf amplified tone. What’s more, this acoustic electric guitar looks amazing, thanks to eye-grabbing double antiqued multi-ply top and back binding and mother-of-pearl parallelogram fingerboard inlays. Players in search of a versatile acoustic-electric guitar with classic style will find much to love in the Southern Jumbo Original.
