1953 Gibson Southern Jumbo in Vintage Corner Posted March 9 · Report reply I bought this last year and love it dearly. It is my birth year and like me it shows it's age but sounds wonderful. I sold a 68 Southern Jumbo to get it but I miss that guitar and a Woody Guthrie SJ from about 08. The Woody was good but not up to the ,53. The Square Shoulder 68 SJ was good but different from the 53 .
