I am technically the second owner of this lovely ‘55 SJ. The family of the late original owner showed me these photos yesterday of him playing this guitar exactly 50 years ago to the month coincidentally. The guitar was 14 years old then. Pretty cool GibSunday. #gibsunday#gibson#vintagegibson#southernjumbo#gibsonsj
This one's for you, Mary @freyliving As we enter into june, cystic fibrosis awareness month comes to a close. I'd like to talk about a very special human, who I wrote this song for. But first, a little bit about CF. 💜 CF is a genetic illness that affects all organs of the body, but mostly the lungs. The lungs produce a thick mucus that makes the lungs vulnerable to infection. There is no known cure (yet!) but various treatments and therapies can help keep the body and lungs strong. Mary has CF. She has recently completed an extremely extensive evaluation to see if she is a good candidate for a double lung and liver transpant. The road was rocky - emotions ran high at times and frustration became inevitable. But with her husband Peter by her side, she overcame this step with courage and grace. Keep being you, Mary. 💜
1953 Gibson Southern Jumbo in Sunburst owned and loved by the late Marshall Barnes. Marshall performed with The Grand Ole Opry for over four decades, as well as having toured with Porter Wagoner. He changed the guard and TRC for stage appearance and we ain’t mad at it.
