Gibson / Gospel / 1977 / Natural / Guitar
The Gospel was only available from 1973 - 1979, so these guitars are quite hard to find. It's a beautiful looking guitar, and a great example of the square shouldered dreadnought, with natural Spruce top and Maple back and sides - this gives the guitar a full bodied sound, plenty of bass, with bright and punchy mid and treble response. After 34 years of play it has matured beautifully, visually it's taken on an amber colour and the binding has turned dark cream, play wise the neck feels just right, the action feels very easy to play. It's in excellent condition, with no cracks or repairs, just a reasonable amount of playwear and a few surface scratches around the bridge. Also it has upgraded Grover machine heads. 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.
