Gibson J50 Deluxe Acoustic Guitar 1972
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-11-11)
Price : US $696.00
The item up for bid is a Gibson J50 deluxe made in Kalamazoo Michigan. The serial # on this guitar is 685613. I believe this is a 1972 model. Unfortunately, Gibson was a little sketchy with serial numbers during the early 70's. If anyone has more info, I would welcome it.
Ths guitar is a players guitar. It has a checked lacquer finish and has some nicks and dings. I have had some work done to it, including having the bridge sanded and the saddle and nut replaced with hand-made bone replacements. The luthier that did the work did an exceptional job. The neck is pulled away from the body at the base slightly but this does not effect the playability. It could be reset by a pro, but I do not think this is necessary. I do use custom light stings on this guitar to afford a little less tension on the neck and bridge.
I am selling this guitar because I have kids in band and I need to invest in instruments for them. I have other guitars that are better suited for me and unfortunately,
I can't justify keeping them all. The winner of this guitar will be getting a real beauty.
Good luck and happy bidding!
The guitar will ship in the hard shell case that is pictured. The case is not original Gibson issue, but the guitar fits well and the case is in very good condition.
