“My #1 Guitar: Gibson Sheryl Crow Southern J”

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting Juan.  Appreciate you bringing all these videos here where we can view them. I thought that guitar sounded tremendous.  I noticed it had a rectangular bridge, is that the norm for this model?

Agreed.  Great sounding guitar!  I loved my 2015 version.  Too bad it had an unidentifiable buzz that Bozeman couldn’t diagnose/fix.  

Yes, her signature models have a rectangle bridge.

Great post, Juan.  That's the best demo of a Sheryl Crow SJ I have seen.  I have a 2015 model that will hopefully be with me to the end.  I'm still grateful to 'thegreatgumbino' for posting a link to it when it was for sale up in Missoula at Greg Boyd's House of Fine Instruments.

Here is a link to the 2015 Gibson specs: https://web.archive.org/web/20150816030102/http://www.gibson.com/Products/Acoustic-Instruments/2016/Sheryl-Crow-Southern-Jumbo-Supreme.aspx

I'm glad you were able to grab it!  It's a killer guitar.  I miss mine.

I have one of those. I made two small changes to mine. I added a firestripe guard and removed the label. Absolutely wonderful guitars. I've had mine for eight years. Here it is:

Really nice, Lars.  The firestripe pickguard is a nice touch. 

In true Gibson fashion when mine was built they ignored the specs  and used the post war style logo and crown pearl headstock inlay instead of the gold script and banner like yours.

That's beautiful, and that headstock and logo are just variations of perfection!

Very similar to mine, a 2015 SJ SC Supreme.

I first saw Ian Meadow's site when I bought my 2002 J50 recently....

For those that haven't done this - a good use of the site and maybe his intention, is a comparison of all the guitars he records. He plays exactly the same thing only on all the different guitars, so you can for example, play this 1955 Gibson J50 (in nice headphones preferably) and then play the other guitar(s) you are interested in to hear the difference(s).

So, first - the 1955 J50........Then compare that to something else he did, like the Southern Jumbo above and then perhaps the Eastman version of a slope shoulder. Don't listen to too many different guitars at once or your ears get fatigued.

I was posting the examples for you, but for some reason I kept getting a Martin dread posted, so anyway, look them up on his site: Ian Meadows. He has lots!!!

Sure enough , Fred.  We have the same headstock inlays.  The 2015 run was 65 guitars.  I wonder how many of them  ended up with the pearl and crown logos?  No way to know, I suppose.   Not that it matters much anyway.

Thanks, Nick.  I know you have a keen eye when it comes to guitars, so your comments are appreciated.

Mine had the pearl and crown as well.

And, I missed out on that model 'cause I had purchased an  SC/CW not too long before the SJ appeared.    I'm still hoping to find one someday.    Ahem!

So, that gets us up to at least three.

B,

 

That’s Gorgeous even with the MOP inlay.

I find it funny that Gibson still has quirks like that in the modern age.

 

 

How cool is it that you have a variation within a variation of the Southern Jumbo.

Thanks, JC. 

I enjoy Gibson's quirks.  It makes them seem genuine and a little more hands on.  And perhaps less corporate than other brands building automated clones that come off assembly lines by the tens of thousands.

Awesome.  My last trip to Fuller's, the SCCWS was the best Gibson in the shop.  Beat out several J200's, J45's (including a vintage) and a Hummingbird Vintage.  It is a fantastic sounding/playing instrument.

That should be a great guitar, JC.  Good luck with the patiently waiting thing...
