Inspired by the coveted WWII war-era guitars, the Gibson Southern Jumbo Banner features a period-correct, vintage sunburst finish and gold script Gibson logo, with the famous banner decal that reads “Only a Gibson is Good Enough.” This was the attitude of the most prominent guitar builders of the time, and there is a reason collectors want to get their hands on the flat tops from this era.

The Hummingbird From a company that has brought the guitar world so many great originals, the Hummingbird stands out strong and proud. Introduced in 1960 as Gibson’s first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by several prime movers on the scene. In the hands of everyone from Keith Richards to Gram Parsons, it quickly proved itself equally adept at folk, country and rock, and excelled at many of the crossovers genres in between that helped to set the scene for the ’60s. Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home thrumming out first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking leadlines further up the neck.

The modern equivalent of Gibson’s historically celebrated original round-shoulder flat-top.Introduced in 1936, the J-35 was Gibson’s answer to a call for a quality, handcrafted guitar with unrivaled tone and an incredible price. The 2013 J-35 is the modern equivalent of that original round-shoulder flat-top with Gibson’s historically celebrated, full-bodied acoustic tone.
Reborn for the same reasons that brought the original to the market, the J-35 is handcrafted with solid tonewoods and all the acclaimed skill of Gibson Acoustic’s luthiers of Bozeman, Montana. The spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce the warm, expressive tone sought after by renowned artists, acoustic connoisseurs, record producers and sound engineers.
The short-scale neck with dovetail neck-to-body joint, attached with traditional hot hide glue, provides for smooth tonal response and easy playing. An Antique Natural finish hand-sprayed with Gibson’s signature nitrocellulose lacquer preserves the natural grain and lends a clean, modern look, while enhancing the guitar’s resonance.
A unique fire stripe pickguard, multi-ply top binding and soundhole rosette, and a Gibson script and banner logo make it easy to distinguish the J-35 in the family of round-shoulder dreadnoughts. Equipped with an L.R. Baggs Element pickup, the J-35 is a go-to favorite for vocal accompaniment on stage or in the studio. Includes case.

A slightly modified take on the classic Standard model, the Gibson J-45 Ebony is a visually striking and incredible sounding guitar.
The main differences between this model and a standard model are subtle, but certainly notable. The Gibson J-45 Ebony does not have an on-board pickup system, although the fantastic projection and sound make it a great choice as a recording guitar and some highly professional sounds are easily achievable. An oversized white pick guard contrasts against the black finish and adds something a bit different to this model, along with a height adjustable rosewood bridge.
