The "Grand Piano of Acoustics," for an American Music Icon


To reach the peaks of acoustic tone and performance demanded by this discerning artist, the Jackson Browne Signature Model is made with the finest tonewoods available today. Made in the shape of the Gibson Jumbo model of the 1930s but with body depths increased to 4.55" at the neck block and 4.83" at the tail block, it has a top crafted from solid Adirondack red spruce—one of the most exalted woods for this application—and back and sides made from solid eco-friendly English walnut. Scalloped Adirondack red spruce top bracing keeps the soundboard resonant and lively, while a 12th fret neck/body joint sets the bridge right at the "sweet spot" in the top for unparalleled tonal depth and richness, as well as optimizing its performance for fingerstyle playing.

The guitar's one-piece solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved to a modified "V" profile, with a rosewood fingerboard set to the popular 24-3/4" scale length for that superb Gibson comfort and playability. Furthermore, it is joined to the body with hot hide glue just like the great pre-War acoustics. Other tonal fine points are achieved by the guitar's genuine bone nut, traditional rectangular open-slotted rosewood bridge, and gold-plated Waverly™ tuners with ivoroid buttons. The traditional look of these high-end, open-geared tuners is reflected throughout the guitar, from nitrocellulose Vintage Sunburst finish, to multi-ply body top binding, to firestripe pickguard, to elegant abalone slotted-diamond fingerboard inlays—all of which combine to make a visual statement that is every bit as powerful as the sound of this bold-voiced acoustic guitar.

For players who want to take it to the stage, the Model A version of the Jackson Browne Signature Model is just like the one Jackson uses and carries a pickup system that is eminently equipped to satisfy Browne's desire for a plugged-in tone that is not only suitable for the most advanced audiophile, but also capable of delivering a flawless acoustic tone in the large concert arena. This natural big sound has been impressing Jackson’s audiences and peers for many years now. Comprising two hand-made bridge plate transducers, and including an outboard preamp system with gain control, the Trance Audio Amulet System offers unprecedented fidelity and clarity for in-the-room amplified acoustic tone that is previously unheard of. Or, opt for the Model 1 for purely unplugged acoustic performance, or miked stages or recording. Either way, the Jackson Browne Signature Model brings back the great pre-War Gibson Jumbo in its full glory, in a package that is equipped for the 21st century's most demanding artist.

Every guitar includes a custom shop formfitting hardshell case with burgundy crushed-velvet lining, an owner's manual, and Gibson's Gold Warranty.

Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson's lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, a 12th fret neck/body joint, and the wider dimensions of 1.805" at the nut.
