The body’s top is made from solid Sitka spruce, one of the most highly regarded woods for the soundboards of acoustic guitars. Its back and sides are made from solid East Indian rosewood, long considered a premium tonewood in acoustic guitars. Body Species
Tonal Characteristics
The Randy Scruggs Model offers outstanding depth and complexity in the vein of the great large-bodied rosewood flat-tops. The solid Sitka spruce top presents an excellent clarity and complexity, while the Indian Rosewood back and sides contribute warmth and dimension to the tone. All of this, and unsurpassed volume and projection, suit the Randy Scruggs Model to a surprisingly wide range of playing styles.  
The Randy Scruggs Model is designed in the image of the large-bodied, round-shouldered Advanced Jumbo, an all-time classic that Gibson introduced in 1936. Its 16 1/4”-wide body produces the rich, balanced tone and superior volume and projection that professional pickers have relied upon for nearly 75 years. Body Design
The Randy Scruggs Model is finished in classic vintage sunburst. Body Design
Gibson’s acclaimed acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana hand-finishes these guitars in nitrocellulose lacquer, which is kept to a low build-up and hand-buffed to a high sheen. In addition to looking great and aging beautifully, this thin nitrocellulose finish avoids impeding of the guitar’s resonance. Body Design
