Part of the Gibson Super Jumbo family, J-100 Xtra is modeled after the SJ-100 of the 1930s. After several transformations, the J-100 Xtra emerged in 1993 with the classic Moustache Bridge, an old-style pickguard similar to that of the J-200, and a traditional headstock logo and crown.
The J-100 Xtra features a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped bracing and solid Honduras mahogany back and sides, which deliver a thundering bottom end and a warm midrange response. Though not quite as fancy as its famous cousin, the J-200, the J-100 Xtra certainly represents the elegant power of Gibson’s Super Jumbo acoustics.
