This is a great example of a late '60s Gibson J-50 before the company made the move to the square shoulder dreadnought body shape. This 1969 J-50 is in beautiful condition with a sound and playability to match. The J-50 is constructed from Spruce and Mahogany with a set Mahogany neck, and is essentially a J-45 with a natural finish to the top. As with many Gibson acoustic of this period, it has a full bodied and focused sound, and responds beautifully to open chord and fingerstyle playing alike. It features a belly down rosewood bridge and adjustable saddle as was the standard option at the time.
This guitar is in exceptionally clean, original condition, with almost no signs of play wear to mention. The only work that has been carried out on the guitar is to two top cracks that runs in line with the low and high E strings, which have been repaired and cleated from the underside, and are barely distinguishable from the grain.
This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
