Gibson / J50 / 1965 / Natural / Guitar

This is a great example of Gibson's iconic slope shouldered dreadnought, and when you start playing it you realise why these 60's dreadnoughts are among the most collectable acoustics around. The guitar has a big sound, a rounded bass yet the subtlety to handle the most delicate playing styles, with a fantastic playing action it's a dream to play. In fact this guitar sums up why I started collecting vintage guitars; it's been played for 48 years, and you can just tell when you pick it up - it oozes character. The guitar is in very good condition, the top has been professionally refinished, and has a repaired top crack, and has great looking lacquer checking on the back and sides. The other thing to mention is that the inside of the guitar has been stained black, I guess this was done at the time the top was refinished. It comes in a non original hard case.

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.
