1974 Gibson SJ Deluxe – £1999

NEW ARRIVAL  This is a great example of a vintage Gibson square shouldered dreadnought. It has an iconic look with a faded tobacco sunburst Spruce top, beautifully complimented by a 3 point tortoiseshell pickguard, and well figured Mahogany back and sides. The SJ is like a less blingy Hummingbird, with a bound body and neck, a crown headstock inlay and block fingerboard inlays. Tonally it has a full sound from deep bass through rich mids to sparkling trebles – very versatile handling both strumming and fingerstyle equally well. The guitar is in good condition, with a couple of crack repairs. It’s all original, and is just back from a neck reset, so the action is just right, with plenty of saddle height. The guitar comes in a vintage hard case with changed handle.
