Gibson / J-50 / 1942 / Guitar
This cool 1942 Gibson J-50 just came in. It has this killer sound from the old time ... adirondack spruce top and mahogany back and sides ... all you need for a magical sound experience!
Banner Gibson Dreadnoughts are among the most sought after vintage guitars. During war time Gibson produced only a few instruments and took great care in building each instrument.
They used the best materials on this particular one. It has a very nice adirondack spruce top and beautiful mahogany back and sides. It has a very nice and chunky mahogany neck and a thin coat of finish (it has been carefully refinished).
This Gibson is very resonant, has a balanced sound with impressive basses, present mids and a characteristic trebles. The sound is deep and the guitar vibrates perfectly. It has this charming sound you can only find on a well played and beautifully matured vintage guitar.
It is original but the tuners have been exchanged and it has been refinished. It only has a small pickguard crack repair and is otherwise very clean.
The action is perfect and it plays extremely well all the way down the neck. It has had a neck reset in the past.
The bridge has enough space left for further adjustments.
Comes with a non-original hardshell case.
