J45/Southern Jumbo depth difference

Recommended Posts

Now I should preface this by saying that I did this out of sheer boredom haha. But while looking at my 2012 J45 1968 Reissue and my 1991 Southern Jumbo Reissue (yea yea I guess I like reissues) I noticed there was a size difference in the depth of the guitars. Seems the J45 is about a quarter of an inch thicker than the SJ. Upper bout on the 45 measures 3 3/4 while the SJ is 3 1/2. Same with the lower bout which measures in at 4 3/4 and 4 1/2. I guess it got me curious as to why that is. Different molds perhaps? Seems to be the most logical answer. All other measurements are the same except the horns on the headstock where the 45 is actually the slightest bit smaller. Now does any of this information mean anything? No haha. I was just bored and thought I'd share. For research purposes of course.

 

Well anyways, here are some pictures
