This big-bodied, round-shouldered dreadnought is built from the classic tonewood combination of Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides—all solid woods—with a tonally advantageous advanced X-brace made of scalloped spruce braces supporting the top. To top it off, a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish in vintage sunburst and abalone body trim and soundhole rosette mean the Randy Scruggs Model looks just as glorious as it sounds.
Neck, Fingerboard and Headstock
The guitar’s neck and headstock are made much in the tradition of the original Advanced Jumbo, with the 25 1/2 inches scale length that many players prefer in a large-bodied flat-top. 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, which contributes greatly to the instrument’s resonance and sustain, and the wider dimensions of 1.725 inches at the nut, as specified by Scruggs himself, and preferred by numerous top-notch country players.
The Randy Scruggs Model carries an up-market hardware set, including open-back nickel tuners, and rectangular rosewood bridge with traditional bridge pins and bone saddle.
The Randy Scruggs Model is protected by a Gibson hardshell case with purple plush lining. Each guitar comes with a Gibson Acoustic owner’s manual and a Gibson Gold Warranty.
