Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural, 1964

Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural, 1964

Created for the folk boom of the early 1960’s, the Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural Finish has a few differences from Gibson’s regular dreadnoughts. While it uses the Jumbo body size found on guitars like the SJ, the FJN has a wide 12-fret neck – the nut is nearly 2 inches wide – and is braced for nylon, Silk & Steel, or very light steel strings. Interest in the FJN faded with the folk boom, and by 1967 the FJN was taken out of production.
