    Gibson Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar (with Case) Product Description

    A Living Legend at the Heart of Country Music

    With a bevy of Grammies, three Country Music Award Musician of the Year titles, and production and songwriting credits to rival any of the most influential names in Nashville, Randy Scruggs' resume practically reads like a history of contemporary country music itself. The son of legendary banjo virtuoso Earl Scruggs, Randy grew up amid Nashville's elite, made his first professional guitar recording at the age of 13, and was a first-call session guitarist and producer before he had left his teen years behind. Put it all together, and Scruggs' heart beats with the pulse of country music--much like that of his beloved Gibson Advanced Jumbo, long the go-to flat-top for Nashville pickers.

    To honor this association, Gibson introduces the Randy Scruggs Model, an elegantly appointed acoustic guitar from the luthiers of Bozeman, Montana. Made to the proportions of the Advanced Jumbo round-shouldered dreadnought, with solid premium Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides, an advanced scalloped X-brace, vintage sunburst finish, and up-market adornments such as abalone trim and rosette and mother-of-pearl fingerboard crowns, the Randy Scruggs Model packs the one-two punch of looks and tone that make it a fitting testimony to its namesake's achievements. Add to these its bone nut and saddle and a Fishman Matrix pickup system to translate all that stellar tone to the masses, and it's a guitar primed to take pride of place at the center of a collection, or in the hands of a hard-working artist. Only 100 Randy Scruggs Model guitars will be produced by Gibson, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush purple lining, an owner's manual, and Gibson's Gold Warranty.

    Body and Finish
    This big-bodied, round-shouldered dreadnought is built from the classic tonewood combination of Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides--all solid woods--with a tonally advantageous advanced X-brace made of scalloped spruce braces supporting the top. To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish in vintage sunburst and abalone body trim and sound-hole rosette mean the Randy Scruggs Model looks just as glorious as it sounds.

    Hardware
    The Randy Scruggs Model carries an up-market hardware set, including open-back nickel tuners, and rectangular rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins and bone saddle.

    Neck, Fingerboard and Headstock
    The guitar's neck and headstock are made much in the tradition of the original Advanced Jumbo, with the 25.5-inch scale length that many players prefer in a large-bodied flat-top. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson's lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the instrument's resonance and sustain, and the wider dimensions of 1.725 inches at the nut, as specified by Scruggs himself, and preferred by numerous top-notch country players.

    Accessories
    The Randy Scruggs Model is protected by a Gibson hardshell case with purple plush lining. Each guitar comes with a Gibson Acoustic owner's manual and a Gibson Gold Warranty.
