Guitar For Sale: Gibson Advanced Jumbo Acoustic

I’m selling a very nice Gibson AJ from 2002, with its original hard case. This is Gibson’s round-shouldered dreadnought design, originally from the 1930’s, which has a huge, loud sound. This is also partly due to the 25.5″ scale. I believe the AJ is the only Gibson acoustic with that Martin-like scale length. You can see from the photos there’s only normal handling wear, with one tiny ding on the top and very little fret wear.

Spruce top (probably Sitka), Indian rosewood back and sides, and a mahogany neck. The guitar is very well set up and comfortable to play. The intonation is great, and came that way from the factory. I made and installed a bone nut, and put a new strap button on, with a matching one on the underside of the neck heel. I have the original button, and the warranty card from Gibson. This guitar is ready to go!

And it’s gorgeous! Nobody sprays a sunburst like Gibson, and the grain in the top is outstanding. This is the best example of this model I found, which is why I bought it. It’s going for $1800. Check it out!
