Gibson / J15 / 2016 / Natural / Guitar
At first glance, the Gibson J15 is a stripped down J45 / J50, a classic slope shouldered dreadnought. But on closer inspection, the Walnut back and sides, Maple neck, rectangular bridge, Abalone rosette and scalloped bracing reveals something quite different. The Walnut back and sides deliver a darker, moodier tone than traditional Mahogany, coupled with a Maple neck and scalloped bracing, the guitar is very resonant, and particularly allows the bass and mids to ring through. The treble response is there, but understated. As you’d expect from a modern Gibson, the playability is very good and the feel of the neck is great. Tonally it’s a very versatile guitar, a real all rounder, and it’s in excellent condition. It features an LR Baggs element pickup with volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Gibson embossed 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.
