Fine sounding and exceptionally clean, this rare Gibson Super Jumbo 100 is one of fewer than 200 made between 1939 and 1941 (blues and jazzman Lonnie Johnson was often seen playing this model).  Features include a double bound jumbo body with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and 2-piece curly maple neck. It has a bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard and Brazilian rosewood 3-point bridge. A newer bridge plate and Grover tuners have been installed, and all else is original. It has one repaired back crack, a minor repaired crack in the neck center stripe in the heel area, and some overspray around the neck heel, but overall it's in excellent- condition.   More Details...
