Gibson / J50 / 1974 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
With prices of 60’s J50’s becoming very expensive, early to mid 70’s examples have become the more affordable way of getting a vintage Gibson dreadnought tone. It's a classic example of the 'workhorse' guitar, and one of Gibson's most iconic models. The square shouldered dreadnought, with dark honey coloured Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, simply oozes character. It has a warm, rich bass, yet balanced trebles and detailed mids - this guitar is a great all rounder. As you'd expect from a 48 year old guitar it has it’s fair share of play wear, a soundhole crack, and a plugged top volume control. The neck feels great to play, with a comfortable playing action, making it a very difficult guitar to put down. The guitar 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.
