1964 Gibson J50 – £2799

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 dark honey coloured top, with vivid 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 very well played condition, with no cracks or repairs, but some bellying around the soundhole. Other than that, a fair few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
