Gibson / J45 / 1969 / Sunburst / Guitar
This is one of Gibson's most desirable models - a 60's slope shouldered dreadnought - and a classic example of Gibson's famous 'workhorse' guitar. The guitar has a beautiful cherryburst finish, which has faded over time, with a Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It's a very full sounding guitar, deep bass and clear trebles, with masses of sustain, making it a truly versatile guitar - as good a strummer as it is a fingerpicker. At 43 years old it's in great condition with no cracks or repairs on the body or neck - only a small repaired crack on the left side of the bridge - and just the right amount of playwear to tell you it's been played and loved. The neck feels great and the action makes it an easy guitar to play. It comes in it's original and very desirable Crocodile 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.
