Gibson Acoustic Introduces the Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo – Nashville’s Finest Go-To Flat-Top
Nashville, TN, February 22, 2010 — Gibson Acoustic announced the launch of the highly anticipated Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo acoustic guitar. With a bevy of GRAMMY awards, three Country Music Award Musician of the Year titles, and production and songwriting credits to rival any of the most influential names in Nashville, Randy Scruggs’ resume practically reads like a history of contemporary country music itself. The son of legendary banjo virtuoso Earl Scruggs, Randy grew up amid Nashville’s elite, made his first professional guitar recording at the age of 13, and was a first-call session guitarist and producer before he had left his teen years behind. Put it all together, and Scruggs’ heart beats with the pulse of country music—much like that of his beloved Gibson Advanced Jumbo, long the go-to flat-top for Nashville pickers.
The Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo is an elegantly appointed acoustic guitar from the luthiers of Bozeman, Montana. Made to the proportions of the Advanced Jumbo round-shouldered dreadnought, with solid premium Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides, an advanced scalloped X-brace, vintage sunburst finish, and up-market adornments such as abalone trim and rosette and mother-of-pearl fingerboard crowns, the Randy Scruggs Model packs the one-two punch of looks and tone that make it a fitting testimony to its namesake’s achievements. Add to these its bone nut and saddle and a Fishman Matrix pickup system to translate all that stellar tone to the masses, and it’s a guitar primed to take place of pride at the center of a collection, or in the hands of a hard-working artist. Only 100 Randy Scruggs Model guitars will be produced by Gibson, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush purple lining, an owner’s manual, and Gibson’s Gold Warranty.

With WeImprovise! I set out to build a different kind of promotion & discovery platform — supportive, expansive, & inclusive, for music, musicians (students, performers, educators, & researchers), and the wide-ranging industry that supports music worldwide.
The focus is jazz, blues, & roots-folk-world music — incidentally the music that feeds pop & rock creativity — along with the inclusion of cultural & sociological aspects without which the music cannot truly be engaged with.
What you see is the beginning, a proof of concept to demonstrate possibilities and inspire ideas.
