condition: good
make / manufacturer: Gibson
1962 Gibson J-50 (natural finish version of the J-45) with adjustable bridge.
This is a sloped-shoulder dreadnaught body shape.
Good condition; the top has had a repair (a split along the grain near the pick guard has been glued) and the machines have been replaced but I still have the original ones. Comes with what appears to be the original case; an alligator type flimsy case.
There are also a few aberrations where the neck meets the headstock (perhaps a result of the way the older style finish interacts with the rubber in guitar stands).

Great sounding guitar, especially when strummed. Very different than a Martin, in my opinion.
It seems as though the adjustable bridge imparts a brightness and a slight resonance.

$3,900 cash/Bitcoin
