- Great even tones with big bass
- Good for: Strumming/Rhythm
You’ll probably have seen jumbo-sized acoustics in the hands of Noel Gallagher or Elvis Presley, and the benefits here are measured in sheer volume. With all that extra wood, there’s more room for the sound to reverberate around the body, resulting in a big, bold sound, which simply can’t be recreated, from a smaller bodied guitar.
Players, particularly rhythm, take to the Jumbo on account of its deep bass sound which provides the perfect complement for the more twiddly lead styles which could be achieved from other shapes. Put simply, jumbos play well with others.
