The acclaimed luthiers of Gibson’s Montana facility have crafted fingerboards and bridges from the very white oak joists of Woody’s childhood home, adding them to the foundation of a solid AA-Sitka spruce top and solid Honduran mahogany back and sides that together blend tonal sweetness and outstanding projection, characteristics which have made the Southern Jumbo popular with solo folk singer and contemporary singer-songwriter alike. Add a luscious Vintage Sunburst finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose with multi-ply soundhole rosette and period-correct “firestripe” pickguard, a solid mahogany neck with vintage “V” profile, characteristic split-parallelogram fingerboard inlays, and a traditional “banner” headstock decal, and the Woody Guthrie London House Model Southern Jumbo is entirely evocative of a golden age in American acoustic music.

I find it incredibly distasteful that a guitar company being run (into the ground) by a gun-toting Tea Partier is cashing in on the name Woody Guthrie.
