Gibson / Country Western / 1964 / Natural / Guitar
For me this is one of the most iconic looking Gibson acoustic guitars - a square shouldered dreadnought with a three point tortoiseshell pickguard, a dark honey coloured top, and eye catching pearl split parallelogram fingerboard inlays. Also it's unusual to see such a beautifully figured Mahogany back. This guitar has all the unmistakable characteristics of an early 60's Gibson dreadnought which makes them sound so familiar, when you start playing your mind starts racing as it sounds like so many of the great 60's recordings - mellow, smooth, warm and rich. The bound neck makes it feel very easy to play, and the action is set just right. The guitar is in good condition, with no cracks or repairs, just a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar comes in a later Gibson hard case.

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.
