Gibson Acoustic proudly presents “The Kristofferson” – an accurately detailed recreation of Kris Kristofferson’s beloved Southern Jumbo acoustic, and a tribute to his legendary songwriting skills and genuine love of Gibson acoustics. This limited production run features vintage appointments, blending the classic details of his original Southern Jumbo with several modern features, including the new Fishman Matrix Infinity – an under saddle pick up system with endpin mounted preamp and sound hole mounted controls. An aged Vintage Sunburst finish gives it a beautiful, yet understated look that faithfully captures the distinct feel of the original. Kris’ long time support for the United Farm Workers is also fully acknowledged through the genuine mother of pearl UFW logo on the 12th fret, and a donation in Gibson’s name for every guitar sold. His autograph is notably featured on each Songwriter series label, and each guitar comes with a certificate of authenticity and an exclusive hard shell case designed specifically for this special issue. Play The Kristofferson and experience a fitting tribute to a modern legend, and the rich history of Gibson Acoustics.
