Gurian JM Jumbo Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 1979

Gurian JM Jumbo Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 1979

During the 1970s Michael Gurian built many guitars like this Gurian JM, or Jumbo Mahogany guitar, from his factory in Hinsdale, New Hampshire. However a devastating fire in 1979, and the rising tide of synthesizer music forced Gurian to fold in 1981 as far as building guitars was concerned. The Gurian JM or Jumbo Mahogany is a large body guitar, Gurian’s largest, but is more akin to an OM or Classical guitar than a traditional Jumbo steel string like the Gibson J-200. As the name suggests, the JM uses Mahogany for the back, sides and neck, with Sitka Spruce for the top.
