1966 Gibson Country Western – £2499
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 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, and the action is set just right. The guitar is in good condition, with no cracks or repairs, just a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
