Default Jeff Bamburg Rocky Mountain Guitar "Mt Massive" Jumbo Build

I had commission another Build from Jeff. see first build here

https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...hlight=bamburg

This one is a Jumbo. I had meant to log in the pics as he was building it, so I'll just do that in hindsight right now.

It's a beautiful guitar and plenty of punch and can handle anything you throw at it!
  • Adi top
  • Sinker Honduran Mahagany B&S
  • Curly Koa Binding
  • Ebony Fretboard
  • Cantilevered Neck
  • 1-3/4" Nut
  • 2-3/16" String Spacing
  • Gotoh 510 Tuners
  • Ziricote Headstock veneer
  • Top was made to fully come alive under light gauge strings (compared to most jumbos that would need Mediums)

I'm always amazed by Jeff's guitars. I really want to build another small guitar by him and hoping that doesn't mean me selling this one. Haven't decided. But I wanted to show you guys because he is a master at his craft and was patient and supportive throughout the whole process.

Sweet! I have played a number of his guitars over the years and enjoyed chatting with him at a couple of festivals. Congrats!

Best,
Jayne
