Gibson / J50 / 1958 / Guitar For Sale

The Gibson J50 was introduced by Gibson in 1947 as the natural-finished version of the pre-existing J45, which featured a sunburst finish. Compared to the guitars from the model's introduction year, this 1958 example features the larger pickguard, an upper belly bridge and lower non-scalloped bracing. This 1958 J50 has been through a lot during its existence. For example, two control buttons for the existing K&K element have been installed on the top, and the bridge has been replaced. A new bridge plate has been placed inside the body and the bracing has been reglued. A hole has been filled on the body and the rear binding on the bass side of the waist is loose. The tuners are not a matching set; the bass side features Kluson 'Double Line' machine heads, while the treble side features Kluson 'Single Line' machine heads. This Gibson also shows signs of wear that are to be expected from a guitar of this age. However, the guitar has a beautiful sound with a good bass response, and is also excellent to play. The guitar comes in a hardshell case.

ABOUT US

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
