Default 1955 Gibson Southern Jumbo

Up for sale is a 1955 Gibson Southern Jumbo that sounds fantastic. Check out the demo video here:

https://youtu.be/raBGt4m1Dt4

I just had master luthier Chris Bozung reset the neck, dress the frets, reglue a few braces, replace the saddle and pins (both bone) and give it an excellent setup. As you can see, the guitar has quite a bit of wear – something that makes old Gibsons just look right! There are several repaired cracks on the top and back, all stable. The finish is original, although two small spots (the primary one being near the pickguard) have been touched up. The finish on the neck has been worn down due to extensive play. The tuners are Gibson Deluxe, which I believe are replacements.

What matters most, though, is the sound: This SJ sounds huge and balanced. Just an awesome axe all around.

Not looking for trades on this one. Asking $5,100 + shipping. Comes with paisley hardshell case.
