The Gibson Acoustic Aaron Lewis Southern Jumbo Guitar is an exact replica of Aaron's most treasured acoustic, his 1951 Gibson Southern Jumbo.
Gibson Acoustic honors Lewis' continued artistry with the introduction of the Aaron Lewis Southern Jumbo Standard. The Grammy-nominated songwriter, frontman for hit rock band Staind, wrote some of the last decade's most enduring and gut-wrenching songs (Outside, It's Been Awhile) using his collection of vintage Gibson acoustics.
As Aaron has said, Those are the crown jewels. I don't think I could go out in front of audiences and do the intimate kind of show I do without those guitars. They provide the perfect accompaniment to my voice. The deep resonance from each of those guitars -when you hear them ring out, with their sound bouncing off the walls of the theatres - it's just staggering. Sometimes I think I don't even have to sing. Let these guitars do the singing for me!

Baggs Element pickup with soundhole-mounted volume control.
Body and Finish
Crafted with a mahogany back and sides and a premium Sitka spruce top -- durable yet lightweight tonewoods that are excellent at conducting sound.
Body Neck and Headstock
The neck of the Aaron Lewis Southern Jumbo is made from one piece of solid mahogany and is graced with a Madagascar rosewood fingerboard. The traditional headstock is carved from the same piece of mahogany as the neck. Both neck and headstock are offset by single-ply white binding.
The Aaron Lewis Southern Jumbo features custom aged Kluson Tuners and a built-in L.R. Baggs Element pickup that offers a broad, natural projection of the guitar's natural tone, without interfering with the vibration of the top and bridge when played unplugged.
