The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature Natural, 2009


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature model is based on her 1962 Gibson Country Western model, which she’d been touring and recording with for years. Concerned that it should be protected, she approached Gibson for a replacement – and they responded with the Sheryl Crow Signature model.

The Gibson Country Western model was originally named the SJN, or Southern Jumbo Natural and was a slope-shoulder dreadnought. Apparently to aid marketing the guitar in the southern states, around 1955 it was renamed the Country Western. In 1962, along with the J-45, it became a square-shouldered model and was finally discontinued in 1977.

The Gibson Sheryl Crow Signature model is based on Crow’s 1962 Country Western model, but it has some influences from the Gibson Hummingbird design. The shoulders are a little wider and squarer and the top is radiused for better expression and projection. It features a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany for the back, sides and neck. The fingerboard and bridge are Indian rosewood, with Mother of Pearl split parallelogram position markers. The Gibson logo and crown are also Mother of Pearl. The finish is a slightly age-tinted Natural on the top, with a cherry stain added to the clear finish for the sides, back and neck.

For electronics, it has a stock L R Baggs pickup system with the 9v battery clip on the neck block and the controls tucked under the bass side of the sound hole. Tuners are vintage-style Kluson-like models with cream plastic buttons. This example includes its factory Final Inspection card, dated 5/5/09 The label carries Ms. Crow’s signature, the series number 1776, and its actual serial number.

This guitar is in good condition with one small ding on the top at the upper bass bout, and a little honest play wear. It really sounds great, and plays very well. It’s an excellent guitar for accompanying a voice or several!

The original Gibson hardshell case is included.
