2004 Hoffman Jumbo Cocobolo/Sitka
SOLDAdd to Compare
Looking for a guitar which can handle fingerstyle and flatpicks equally well? Looking for a guitar which has a huge voice but a lightweight build that isn’t fatiguing to play? Looking for Cocobolo back and sides and Sitka Spruce top for a bright and responsive voice? Look no further: your search is over: this 2004 Hoffman Jumbo is here to answer all your prayers.Builder Charlie Hoffman was never satisfied with the thud and boom of standard jumbos like the Gibson J-200, but had been interested in building a Jumbo guitar which had the warmth of a larger soundboard and the articulation of a smaller-bodied guitar–hence his decision to build his Jumbos with a thinner body (from 3 1/4″ at the neck block to 4″ at the end pin), to allow for a much more balanced tonality and projection. This particular Jumbo features a gorgeous set of Cocobolo Rosewood back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top, granting the guitar a silky sustain in the upper registers. Fingerstylists will love the articulation between the strings; flatpickers will love the big sound and the crispy nature of the low-end. With a smooth setup for effortless playing and a Cedar Creek hardshell case to provide excellent protection in those rare moments when you won’t be playing this beauty, this 2004 Hoffman Jumbo can handle just about anything you throw its way.
