Gibson Acoustic and Sheryl Crow announce their second
collaboration with the release of the Sheryl Crow Southern Jumbo
Special Edition. This new Southern Jumbo is the most advanced
acoustic-electric Southern Jumbo available.
In 2010, Crow modified her entire live acoustic guitar line-up
with the same new and advanced pickup system used in the Gibson
Jackson Browne model released earlier that year. After an extensive
in-studio comparison of guitars and pickups, the idea for her
Southern Jumbo Special Edition was born.
Crow's new Southern Jumbo is built for power and projection with
wider X-bracing on the red spruce top. With mahogany back and
sides, the combination of wood and pattern bracing gives this SJ a
dynamic and responsive tonal range unlike any Southern Jumbo Gibson
has built. The acoustic-electric version of this guitar has the
same incredible stereo pickup system used in the highly-acclaimed
Jackson Browne Model.
Traditional appointments like Ivroid Waverly tuners, vintage
Gibson script logo and banner decal, a hand-beveled pickguard,
bound fingerboard and a custom classic sunburst finish, result in a
beautiful guitar with a classic appearance. The onboard electronics
unleash a new level of acoustic performance capability never before
achieved in an acoustic pickup.
"Having tested many internal pickup systems on many guitars,"
said Robi Johns, project director with Gibson Acoustic, "we've
discovered a new realm we never thought possible for live
performance natural sound. This guitar, combined with this pickup
system, can change the way players interact with their instrument
on stage. It's very exciting. Our goal is to get to the point
where, as a player, you forget that you're plugged in."
Gibson continues to advance acoustic guitar tone and performance
through innovation, experimentation and collaboration with
