A Look at Gibson’s First Jumbo Flat Top

June 6th, 2024

The Jumbo was Gibson’s first ‘Dreadnought’ 14 fret flat top model. It was introduced in 1934, sold poorly, and was replaced by the J-35 in 1936; with a small number of transitional variants in between. With an incredibly clean 1935 Gibson Jumbo and a 1938 Gibson J-35 on hand, Mark discusses the Jumbo model in detail and compares it to the later J-35. Enjoy!
