1964 Gibson Country Western – £3499
NEW ARRIVAL For me this is one of the most iconic looking Gibson acoustic guitars – a square shouldered dreadnought with a three point pickguard, a honey coloured top, and eye catching pearl split parallelogram fingerboard inlays. Also it’s unusual to see such a beautifully figured Mahogany back. This guitar has all the unmistakable characteristics of a 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 bound neck makes it feel very easy to play – 1 11/16” rather than the skinny necks of the late 60’s – and the action is set just right. The guitar is in good condition, with a plugged volume control on the top, and a plugged jack socket on the bottom rim – which just adds to the cool vibe The guitar comes in it’s original hard case.
