Is a Mini-Jumbo a 3/4 size guitar?

    Just wondering; I play a 3/4 size guitar as my "couch" guitar and end up playing it a lot in the evenings during commercials. I'd like to try some good ones and see if there is much difference over what I'm playing now. I keep seeing mini-jumbo's so I was just wondering how they compare size wise to a 3/4 size Taylor or Martin.

    Nope. They're usually inspired by the Gibby J-185, a curvy jumbo shape with smaller dimensions, but full sized full scale guitars.

    I'd think not: what's the scale length? size of lower bout? etc.
