The Lindsay Guitars Jumbo is our largest acoustic model. Based on the Gibson J-185 that was introduced in 1951, the Lindsay Guitars Jumbo is a stellar-sounding guitar. Larger bodied guitars are sometimes preferred by singers and songwriters due to their warmth and bass response. The larger body of the Jumbo provides increased projection and volume, and we have braced the guitar to have a great response and clear treble notes. Side sound ports are recommended for this larger body guitar to truly bring out its rich voice.
