Gibson / J50 / 1954 / Natural / Guitar
I've had quite a few 60's slope shouldered Gibson dreadnoughts in the past - I have several in stock at the moment - and they're always fantastic guitars, but the jump to an early 50's model is incredible, in fact I could run out of superlatives describing it's sound. So let's just say it's everything you could want from a vintage Gibson, hugely versatile, well balanced with great resonance and clarity, capable of any playing style, and a truly inspirational guitar to play. Normally these guitars are well in excess of £3000, however this guitar has been refinished, making it much more affordable than an all original equivalent. The guitar has one repaired crack underneath the pick guard, and comes in a Hiscox flight 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.
