1974 Gibson J50 Deluxe – £1599

NEW ARRIVAL  With prices of 60’s J50’s becoming very expensive, early to mid 70’s examples have become the more affordable way of getting a vintage Gibson dreadnought tone. 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 48 year old guitar it has it’s fair share of play wear, a soundhole crack, and a plugged top volume control. 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 non original hard case.
