After five years of collaboration between Jackson Browne and the master craftsmen at Gibson Montana, the finalized Jackson Browne signature acoustic guitar represents the pinnacle of Gibson quality and design. Channeling the classic Roy Smeck model of the 1930s, the Jackson Browne signature is one of the more unique Gibson acoustics available. With so many details crafted to the exact demands of the legendary singer-songwriter, this is a Gibson destined for the same world-class reputation as its namesake.

Elegant Features for a Discerning Artist

The shorter-scaled neck with twelve frets from headstock to body is crafted in a modified V shape from a single piece of mahogany with a fine rosewood fingerboard. Browne selected sustainable English walnut for the back and sides and Adirondack red spruce for the top to create the a rich sound, and the enticing '30s style sunburst finish with vintage firestripe pickguard adds an elegant look to match the stunning tone of the guitar.

Peerless Projection

The Roy Smeck model that inspired this guitar was characterized by a large body with added depth. The result of using this specific body style is a bold sound with enormous projection, unlike other acoustics. A single strum can fill a auditorium with full textured acoustic sound with clarity, balance, and resounding low-end. The solid construction of this instrument from its fine woods to sturdy dovetail neck joint, provides extreme balance and playability. As such, this guitar has been called the "grand piano of acoustics."

Features:

- Single-piece mahogany neck with modified v shape
- Astounding projection from deep body and fine tonewoods
- Stylish 30's style finish and firestripe pickguard
- Gold-plated Waverly tuners built for maximum tunning stability
- Compound dovetail neck joint for enhanced resonance and sturdiness
- Includes certificate of authenticity and Gibson custom hardshell case

This guitar has already earned a reputation as one of the finest acoustic instruments currently in production. Browne and Gibson worked together to ensure only the utmost quality with no compromises or shortcuts. Ideal for live performance where projection and body matter most, the Jackson Browne signature is a guitar that can achieve the same sound and quality that has been captivating audiences for decades. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Gibson products.

Product Description

To reach the peaks of acoustic tone and performance demanded by this discerning artist, the Gibson Jackson Browne Model 1 Acoustic Guitar is made with the finest tonewoods available today. Made in the shape of the Gibson Jumbo model of the 1930s but with body depths increased to 4.55 inches at the neck block and 4.83 inches at the tail block, the Jackson Browne Signature guitar has a top crafted from solid Adirondack red spruce, one of the most exalted woods for this application, and back and sides made from solid eco-friendly English walnut.

Scalloped Adirondack red spruce top bracing keeps the soundboard resonant and lively, while a 12th fret neck/body joint sets the bridge right at the sweet spot in the top for unparalleled tonal depth and richness, as well as optimizing its performance for fingerstyle playing.

The Jackson Browne Model 1 acoustic guitar's one-piece solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved to a modified V profile, with a rosewood fingerboard set to the popular 24-3/4 inch scale length for that superb Gibson comfort and playability. Furthermore, it is joined to the body with hot hide glue just like the great pre-War acoustics. Other tonal fine points are achieved by the guitar's genuine bone nut, traditional rectangular open-slotted rosewood bridge, and gold-plated Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons.

The traditional look of these high-end, open-geared tuners is reflected throughout the guitar, from nitrocellulose Vintage Sunburst finish, to multi-ply body top binding, to firestripe pickguard, to elegant abalone slotted-diamond fingerboard inlays-all of which combine to make a visual statement that is every bit as powerful as the sound of this bold-voiced Gibson acoustic guitar.

Body and Finish

This big-bodied acoustic is built in the shape of Gibson's Jumbo models of the 1930s and the legendary Roy Smeck Model, but with increased body depth for added richness and projection. It is made with a solid Adirondack red spruce top with scalloped Adirondack red spruce braces, and a solid eco-friendly English walnut back and sides, and is completed with a special Vintage Sunburst finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer.

Neck and Headstock

The Jackson Browne signature acoustic's neck and headstock are made much in the tradition of the great Gibson Jumbos, with a 24-3/4 inch scale length and a tapered 1930s-style headstock shape. 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, a 12th fret neck/body joint, and the wider dimensions of 1.805 inches at the nut.

Hardware

The Jackson Browne Signature Model 1 carries an up-market hardware set, including open-gear Waverly gold-plated tuners, a rectangular open-slotted rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins.

It has been an extraordinary back and forth process with Gibson creating this guitar. As a performer, I've learned over the last 20 years what I like, and what works for my music. To use the iconic Roy Smeck model as a starting point-as well as Gibson's 1994 reissue-and build something that helps me bring my songs to life is really exciting. - Jackson Browne
