Gibson / Country Western / 1957 / Natural / Guitar
The Country Western is a very hard to find model - only available as a slope shoulder dreadnought from 1956 - 1959. I've had quite a few 60's slope shouldered Gibson dreadnoughts in the past - I have two in stock at the moment - and they're always fantastic guitars, but the jump to a 50's model is incredible - seriously one of the best guitars I've ever played - in fact I could run out of superlatives describing it's sound. So let's just say it's everything you could want from a vintage Gibson, hugely versatile, well balanced with great resonance and clarity, capable of any playing style, and a truly inspirational guitar to play. Also 50's necks are highly sought after, very comfortable to play and transfer greater resonance than the slimmer 60's equivalents. This guitar has been professionally repaired and restored, so it's structurally sound and good to go for another 50 years, it also features a custom made Rosewood pickguard with Abalone inlays which is very eyecatching. It comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
