You are looking at a Gibson 1934 Original Jumbo Flattop Reissue Acoustic Guitar, serial number 11043002. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

In 1934, Gibson introduced what would become one of the most iconic instruments of all time—the Jumbo acoustic guitar—and today these first Jumbo acoustics are highly coveted by both players and collectors alike. With a short production period of only two years, these original Jumbos are exceedingly rare, not to mention, if you speak to someone that's been fortunate enough to get their hands on one, they can attest to their prowess and power.

This 1934 Original Jumbo Flattop replica is based off of an actual vintage 1934 Jumbo acoustic guitar, serial number 507A, found in the collection of a vintage Gibson expert, Gary Burnett. In order to replicate this rare acoustic gem with the highest fidelty, Burnett made this guitar available for Gibson to study—they studied everything from the original's precise measurements, to it's vintage appointments and everything in between. This 1934 Original Jumbo Flattop Reissue captures every nuance of the original guitar from it's classic aesthetic, warm, broken-in woody tone and vintage feel.

This 1934 Original Jumbo acoustic guitar is made in the Gibson Acoustic Montana factory, and features a handcrafted construction throughout. The Adirondack red spruce top is sanded to a thinner dimension, just as the original guitar, and features a smaller 3 3/4” sound hole and accurate tortoise pick guard. The top and back employ historically accurate, hand-finished bracing to the specs of the original, while cloth stays and x-brace covers are applied by hand. The body of this 1934 Jumbo reissue matches the exact depth of the original guitar and boasts an accurate cream colored binding with smaller dimensions. The sunburst finish matches the original guitar equisitely—with a classic pear-shaped center that perfectly fades into the dark rich brown edges on the top, and a tint of red in the center of the back and sides. This 1934 Original Jumbo reissue also sports a period-correct interior back strip that's been cut and finished by hand and a head block is configured with notched corners. Each part of the body has been assembled with period-correct hide glue.

The mahogany neck is carved into a heavy, vintage-correct V profile and is topped off with a fully bound rosewood fingerboard with beautifully simple mother-of-pearl dot inlays. The 1934 Original Jumbo features a historically correct string spacing on the bridge and neck, and an period-accurate 1.75 nut width. The tapered peg head flaunts an elegant vintage script Gibson logo and houses a set of open-geared vintage waverly tuning machines.

Now's your chance to own an exacting replica of one of the most coveted and rare acoustic guitars of all time, but just as it's predecessor, the Gibson 1934 Original Jumbo Acoustic Guitar reissue is also extremely rare, with a limited run of only 100 instruments. This true hand-made, American legend comes with the full protection of a Gibson hardshell case.
