Gibson / J-50 / 1955 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
For sale is this wonderful and sweet sounding Gibson J-50 flattop acoustic guitar.
This is an all original example of a mid 50s Gibson, perhaps one of the best Gibson eras with respect to making an acoustic that's both a canon while being heavily strummed, aswell as, an articulate and responsive instrument when plucked delicately. And as you can see, this guitar has been played alot.
'50s Gibson acoustics have a certain magic and this one has more than most. The neck is beyond comfortable and the action is adjusted for best overall tonal character.
