I've never owned a RS Jumbo, but I have played them on several occasions, usually in stores. They are a big guitar, about the same size as Gibson J-200. Quite a armful. They are a big bold guitar, with a big bold sound. The narrow waist helps moderate any tendency toward boominess, and many think that the Jumbo is more balanced overall than their Dreadnoughts.

There has also been recent discussion here about putting heavier strings on the them and tuning down, making a de facto baritone. That is a cool idea, IMO.

My WS-1000 was made in Hawaii in 2001. They moved to WA sometime around 2006, but I don't recall just when.
