After returning from a really good NAMM show, in warm SoCal, back to Montana, I realized that there was so much good stuff we often over look some of the classics. The Gibson Acoustic Jumbo line is nothing short of legendary. This goes all the way back to the singing cowboys of the '30s to the cosmic cowboy's of the '60s - from Gene Autry to Gram Parsons to Emmylou Harris to the Rolling Stones - Gibson's Jumbos have been at the heart of music since they debuted in the '30s.
The NAMM show reminded me of this as Kris Kristofferson visited the booth to support the fantastic Southern Jumbo we now offer with his name on it. Kris is a true american icon and he was also a great gentleman. He played several songs to a large and very appreciative audience and was gracious with pictures and autographs. But most of all, that Gibson Southern Jumbo reminded me of the great history and legends who are the heart and soul of the business.
