The not-so-jumbo Jumbo.
Creamy midrange in a midsized package.
The SJ is a scaled-back version of our curvy, full sized DBJ with a short, 25” scale. It’s body is about the same length as an OM, though with a much wider lower bout.
Prized for its ability to blend warmly with diverse ensembles, the Small Jumbo became a rhythm guitar of choice for many makers of hit recordings the ‘50s and ‘60s. Our small Jumbo still fills that role with style and grace, especially versions built with maple back and sides and Adirondack tops. Other wood combinations, however, open previously unimagined tonal vistas. Looking for some additional spice in your midrange? We’re happy to recommend the Bourgeois Small Jumbo.
