Gibson SJ Square Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1972

The Gibson SJ, or Southern Jumbo, appeared in 1942 as a slope or round-shouldered dreadnought guitar, and in 1964 adopted the square-shouldered shape commonly used by other prominent builders, like Martin. Current SJ versions have gone back to the original, vintage forms. The SJ was also marketed after 1956 with a natural finish top, as the Country Western model.
