The Gibson SJ or Southern Jumbo rolled off the assembly line starting in 1942 as a “deluxe” version of the very popular J-45.
1978 they stopped production, followed by various reissue models later .
This 51 sounds just wonderful. It swings balanced through the frequency spectrum, soft highs and mids and a decent bass.
The SJ shows no breaks, but has age-related wear, mainly through the plectrum around the soundhole.
But that’s exactly how an old Gibson has to look.
A hole under the belt pin was plugged, there used to be a socket from a pickup. The truss rod cover has been replaced.
