1974 Gibson J40 – £1349

NEW ARRIVAL  Only available between 1971-1982, the J40 was originally designed to be a budget version of a J45, and is a classic example of the ‘workhorse’ guitar. The square shouldered dreadnought, with natural finish Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides with tortoiseshell binding and distinctive Gibson pickguard, it really has a classic look. As a 47 year old guitar it’s in excellent condition, all original with no cracks or repairs. Yet it has the mature tone to suggest it’s been played but clearly looked after. A great open sounding strummer, with enough clarity to handle fingerstyle play really well. The neck feels comfortable and the action is very playable. It comes in a non original hard case.
