Gibson / J30 / 1993 / Natural / Guitar
Only available between 1985-1997, the J30 was originally designed to be a budget version of a J45, and is a classic example of the 'workhorse' guitar. The square shouldered dreadnought, with natural finish Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides with distinctive teardrop pickguard, it really has a classic look. As a 25 year old guitar it’s in excellent condition, all original with no cracks or repairs. Yet it has the mature tone to suggest it’s been played but clearly looked after. A great open sounding strummer, with enough clarity to handle fingerstyle play really well. The neck feels comfortable and the action is very playable. It comes in a non original 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.
