Gibson / J150 / 2001 / Natural / Guitar
This is the next best thing to a J200 at a much more affordable price - a stripped down version with an unbound neck and headstock. Visually it's beautiful, very distinctive looking as the top has turned a rich honey colour - quite unusual for a modern guitar. In it's 11 years it's clearly been played a lot - there is a noticeable wear patch just below the scratchplate - and the tone has benefited from this, with quite a mature sound, greater depth than a newer model. When strummed it has a room filling sound, yet when fingerpicked it has great clarity on individual notes. It's a pleasure to play this guitar, the neck is very comfortable and the action is just right. Made in Montana, and has an active undersaddle pickup, and comes in it's original Gibson embossed 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.
