1961 Gibson J50 – £3999
SOLD Early 60’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 an early 60’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 60’s recordings – mellow, smooth, warm and rich. The action is set just right, and unlike later 60’s examples the neck is quite full feeling. The guitar is in well played condition, with a repaired soundhole crack, an upgraded bone saddle, and lots of great looking lacquer checking. The guitar even comes in it’s original beautiful hard case.
