A well played and loved Gibson Acoustic from the 60s…
Initially intended for release in 1942, the J-50 was officially released in 1947 as the natural version of Gibson’s now iconic J-45. Source top, mahogany back and sides, scalloped X-bracing, these guitars define the Gibson acoustic sound.
This particular example dates from 1966, incorporating the narrow nut width alongside the adjustable bridge introduced in its current form in 1964.The guitar is a complete joy to play and has weathered the years exquisitely. It has a clear and warm sound that projects well.
The neck has a comfortable C profile, far more modern than you’d expect especially compared to our other example. The fretboard shows some light signs of wear with original frets that themselves have plenty of life left in them.
This guitar has been well cared for and though there are a few minor dings, there aren’t the hallmarks of being abused or any significant trauma.
It comes with a modern hardshell case.
A great example of how good vintage Gibson acoustics can sound, grab it before is gone…
