Gibson Jackson Browne Acoustic Guitar

The Gibson Acoustic Jackson Browne Model is a true collaboration between the artist and the guitar maker and is inspired by Gibson’s fabulous Jumbo body design of the 1930’s.

Jackson worked with Gibson Montana for 5 years perfecting this “round shoulder” Jumbo. He desired to create for upcoming generations of musicians the best acoustic guitar available — made by Gibson — with no modern “compromise” or shortcuts in construction, design, and features. This guitar would deliver the most natural and magical “tone quality” & superior live performance capability anywhere on this planet .

The Gibson Jackson Browne Model design is based on the Gibson acoustic guitars Jackson has been performing with for over a decade — that have left his audiences in awe of his natural acoustic tone on the big stage. […]

Hamer Artist Vanguard Electric Guitar Review

The Vanguard’s resonance chamber doubtless helps the P-90s achieve such cool clean tones. But its functions becomes readily apparent once the volume and gain are turned up: the instrument boasts remarkably smooth sustain throughout its entire range, and once the woods starts dancing with some high-decibel sound pressure, notes come alive and ring forever. Rather than slip into upper harmonic feedback, the tone remains focused on the note’s fundamental, and all notes sustain with equal ease […]
