JUMBO

The Godfather of Acoustic guitar sizes, this is the "Grand Piano" of the Falbo line. The Intension bridge system lends itself so well to this size. Normally, the extra real estate of a Jumbo is accompanied by additional weight, and often a tight bracing implementation. Although this gives a particular voice, the additional density can revert the amplitude and frequency range right back to that of comparable Dreadnought. The Intension bridge allows this extra real estate to be fully leveraged. The low end  is deep with a breathy envelope, not wooly or woofy. The top end is immediate; highly uncharacteristic of a larger bodied guitar. Piano-esque clarity in the lower register combines with the detailed tenor of the upper register for an extremely complete experience. This is a superlatively voiced guitar.
