The Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo Mystic pays homage to Gibson's Workhorse J-45, first introduced in 1942. This round-shoulder dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar delivers the full, balanced sound, exceptional midrange, and robust projection that the J-45 is famous for. Handcrafted with a premium Sitka spruce top, the Mystic gives you all that tonal richness, plus enhanced bass response, courtesy of the Mystic rosewood back and sides. And to faithfully deliver that incredible tone when you're plugged in onstage, the Mystic is fitted with LR Baggs Element VTC electronics. The rosewood fingerboard is enhanced with hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl parallelograms for the traditional Southern Jumbo look. The Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo Mystic is a limited edition of only 65 instruments, so you'd better reserve your piece of Gibson history while you can!

The top of the Southern Jumbo Mystic is made from Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from Mystic rosewood, giving this J-45 full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection. Selecting the premium tonewood - and the formula to dry it out - are two of the most central procedures to Gibson's guitar-building process. Beginning with its first catalog in 1903, Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with "the most durable, elastic, and sonorous qualities," and today's guitars from Gibson Acoustic are no different.
Under the hood
Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the projection. The Southern Jumbo Mystic features a variation of Gibson's X-bracing pattern situated behind the soundhole, with a set of tall and thin braces for the back, and scalloped tall and thin braces for the top, all bonded with hot hide glue. This legendary bracing design - exactly as it appeared in the first J-45 in 1942 - delivers a balanced expression, with punchy, deep lows, warm mids, and clear, crisp highs. When pushed for more volume, the Southern Jumbo Mystic compresses naturally, which helps it blend nicely with any accompaniment.
LR Baggs Element VTC electronics
Gibson Acoustic equipped the Southern Jumbo Mystic with LR Baggs's popular Element VTC Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp that features an unobtrusive, removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element VTC is a tremendous performer. AudioBuy.com.au Australia acoustic-electric guitarists love this system. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer. This provides for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element VTC works with a standard 9-volt battery, which is housed inside the guitar in LR Baggs's new Battery Bagg.
Nitrocellulose lacquer finish
The Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo Mystic wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the instrument to breathe. Nitro finishes not only look authentically vintage - they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. And your guitar's tone will only improve as the guitar ages.
Custom Shop hardshell case
Naturally, a guitar as special as the Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo Mystic will come with a premium hardshell case as befits its lofty status as a Gibson Custom instrument. The Mystic comes with a really sweet hardshell case that will protect your investment for many decades to come. And to confirm your good taste in stringed musical instruments, a Gibson Acoustic Certificate of Authenticity is included.
