Gibson / Gospel / 1993 / Natural / Guitar
Originally available from 1973 – 1979, the Gospel was reissued from 1992 – 1997 but with different specifications. The 90’s Gospels have a more vintage look about them, with a prewar style tortoiseshell pickguard, Kluson tulip tuners, and an antique natural finish. Also different to the 70’s models, 90’s Gospels have Mahogany back and sides, the back being arched. The square shouldered dreadnought has a big sound, with a full bass, and the arched back gives a more direct punch in the mid range. For a 27 year old guitar the tone has matured well, and is in excellent, all original condition, with no cracks or repairs. The guitar comes in it’s original and very desirable embossed tan 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.
