1969 Gibson J50 – £1749

NEW ARRIVAL  This J50 is a real find, 1969 was the transitional year when Gibson changed from slope shouldered J50’s, so this is the only year you can get a 60’s square shouldered J50. It’s a classic example of the ‘workhorse’ guitar, and one of Gibson’s most iconic models. The square shouldered dreadnought, with dark honey coloured Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, simply oozes character. It has a warm, rich bass, yet balanced trebles and detailed mids – this guitar is a great all rounder. As you’d expect from a 52 year old guitar it has wonderful looking lacquer checking, and a couple of repaired top cracks. The neck feels great to play, with a comfortable playing action, making it a very difficult guitar to put down. The guitar comes in a Hiscox flight case.
