1968 Gibson J50 – £2499
This guitar is a great example of Gibson’s classic workhorse guitar – a 60’s J50. The Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides give the guitar a rich warm sound, and the slope shoulders give a wonderful rounded bass, yet well balanced in the mids and trebles making it a very versatile guitar. Visually the natural top had turned a warm honey colour, contrasting beautifully with tortoise pickguard featuring the Gibson logo only used this year. The neck feels comfortable, and the low action makes the guitar a treat to play. It’s in very good condition, all original with no cracks or repairs, just the usual signs of playwear and lots of cool looking lacquer checking. It comes in a non original hard case.
