1955 Gibson J50

SOLD  50’s J50’s are getting harder to find, and this is a fine example of the classic Spruce / Mahogany slope shouldered shape with a honey coloured top, with dark red tortoise pickguard. This guitar has all the unmistakable characteristics of a 50’s Gibson dreadnought which makes them sound so familiar, when you start playing your mind starts racing as it sounds like so many of the great recordings – mellow, smooth, warm and rich. The guitar is in excellent condition, the full feeling neck fits your left hand like a glove, the action is set just right, and it’s a dream to play. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
