The Gibson Country & Western was a variation on the Southerner Jumbo to generate an appeal beyond the South and capitalize on the national trends of western films and television shows. Though it was a nice idea, they never really caught on. It is unfortunate as they are very good examples of natural finish Southerner Jumbos with red transluscent side and back finish on mahogany.
