Fun and comfortable to play, the Jumbo Junior's warm tone and surprising volume will inspire many memories, group sing-alongs, and weekend jam sessions. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and the choice of an arched mahogany or maple back, the Jumbo Junior offers Guild's classic aesthetic for those who love the look of a jumbo, but may not love the size.

"Incredible baby jumbo guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this for my wife as a valentines day present since she has gotten away from playing and I though this baby jumbo might entice her back. What a nice guitar! Solid Spruce Top, OPEN pore mahogany back and sides, nice rosewood fretboard and rosewood bridge. Its not made in the USA but I am stating the build of it doesn't matter. It comes with heavy 13's on it but I put 11-52 on it and it just sings. I think this is my new favorite electric-acoustic lol. I would not put this in the travel guitar mentality: I would just say it is a smaller version of their jumbo which can be quite bulky. It has a pickup in it but I haven't tried that out yet but I am sure being a Guild it will capture the true tone of this instrument. If you have small hands, or are tired of working too hard to play a larger instrument this guitar is for you!
