The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Steel String

❌SOLD❌ Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural, 1964

❌SOLD❌  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.

Built during 2012 in Austin and signed by Bill Collings, this guitar is in very good clean condition.  While this guitar is now almost a decade old, it has been very well cared for.  It’s also been owned and played by someone with highly developed skills, and so the guitar has had a chance to develop its frankly impressive voice.
