Gibson 1936 Advanced Jumbo Vintage Sunburst 4.4 #21404018

Serial Number: 21404018
Weight: 4 lbs 4 oz

During a time when cultural optimism was low, Gibson dreamed up a new line of “advanced” instruments; included in those models was the Advanced Jumbo. Due to low production numbers from 1936-1939, this model largely flew under the radar even though it was a supreme sounding and performing instrument. The Gibson Acoustic Custom Shop is pleased to once again offer the Gibson 1936 Advanced Jumbo, outfitted with a thermally aged Adirondack red spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and premium Waverly tuners. The 1936 Advanced Jumbo brings back all the tone and prestige that made these such a sought-after instrument by artist and collectors.
