Gibson 1942 Banner Southern Jumbo Light Aged front
The Gibson 1942 Banner Southern Jumbo Light Aged evokes nostalgia and delivers a stunning vintage sound.
Gibson 1942 Banner Southern Jumbo Light Aged body
Adirondack spruce and rosewood create a high quality sound for live performances and recordings.

The tonewoods: Adirondack spruce and rosewood.

Because of its unique sound, the Banner Southern Jumbo model is a favourite of many guitarists. For example, the solid top made of Adirondack spruce produces a clear, powerful sound with strong projection, which makes the lightweight yet exceptionally stiff species a popular choice for top woods for good reason. Also, popular in guitar making and used in numerous high-end models, rosewood also delivers a strong acoustic sound. With solid rosewood back and sides, the guitar produces a rich, complex sound with deep bass and sparkling treble that adds balance to the overall sound. The necessary assertiveness results from the innovative Scalloped-X bracing, which favours the vibration behaviour of the top, and the voluminous soundbox of the cantilevered round-shoulder dreadnought.

Mahogany is a popular choice for guitar necks.

Playability: Mahogany neck and shortened scale length.

The mahogany neck provides the Gibson 1942 Banner Southern Jumbo Light Aged with a high degree of stability and, with its ergonomic C-profile, fits perfectly in the hand. The smooth rosewood fingerboard not only allows the picking hand to glide effortlessly over the entire surface but also has the ability to produce clear, defined tones due to its hardness. To that end, Gibson is known for its meticulous fretwork, making the guitar easy to play in all 19 frets, while the shortened 628.6mm scale reduces the amount of effort required to grip. Combined with the slim 44.9mm wide nut, the model is the ideal choice for powerful strumming and virtuoso fingerpicking. furthermore, the contours of the round-shoulder dreadnought are designed for a comfortable posture and fit the player ideally.

Classic vintage look

The design of the Gibson 1942 Banner Southern Jumbo Light Aged is highly remarkable and the ideal compromise between vintage details and modern manufacturing techniques. Particularly artistic here is the exciting Sunburst colour gradient with Light-Aged finish, which gives the instrument the appearance of an already well-played acoustic guitar and makes it an absolute character model with subtle signs of use and ageing effects. The traditional mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays, on the other hand, add a touch of vintage glamour, while the traditional pickguard not only protects the top but is an additional character feature. Another outstanding feature of the series is the iconic banner logo on the headstock with the words "Only a Gibson is good enough", which became a classic Gibson symbol. Thus, the design is a perfect example of the combination of history and craftsmanship and the optimal blend of classic Style and modern guitar making.
