Gibson / SJ / 1975 / Sunburst / Guitar
This is a great example of a vintage Gibson square shouldered dreadnought. It has all the deluxe appointments you'd look for in a high end Gibson - a very comfortable bound neck with block inlays, crown headstock inlay, and a really distinctive tortoiseshell scratchplate, plus a beautiful looking dark sunburst finish which Gibson are famous for. Tonally it has a big sound, with a vibrant bass, yet well balanced mids and trebles, making it a very versatile guitar with a great vintage vibe. It's in very good all original condition, with just one crack by the soundhole which has been professionally repaired, it has a few cracks in the lacquer on the top and back, plus a few areas on the back of the neck where the lacquer has worn through. At one time it had a pickup installed, and the jack socket is still in place making it easy to have another fitted. 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.
