1965 Gibson Southern Jumbo – £2599

NEW ARRIVAL  For me this is one of the most iconic looking Gibson acoustic guitars – a square shouldered dreadnought with a three point tortoiseshell pickguard, a dark sunburst 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 three tightly repaired top cracks, plus a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.

1931 Gibson L2 Argentine Grey – £6499

NEW ARRIVAL  If ever there were a particular Gibson flattop with “all the right stuff”, this 1931 L-2 would be it. Gibson produced the L-2 in very limited numbers during its brief lifespan between 1929 and 1933, and the design changed frequently with a confusing...
