Vintage 1958 Gibson J 50 Acoustic Guitar
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-30)
Price : US $1,680.
This is a great 1958 Gibson J50 that I have owned for 14 years. It is in good condition and plays great. The reason I am selling is to help fund another instrument purchase that I am planning. The guitar has been well cared for and I have done nothing to the guitar except replace the tuners (back to original Klusons) and play it. I would recommend this guitar for anyone wanting to own a vintage Gibson J45, J50 or SJ.
Condition: The guitar had replacement tuners when I got it. I replaced them with Vintage Kluson 3x3 tuners that are right for this guitar. You can see the screw holes of the previous tuners on the back of the headstock. What appear to be a couple of cracks in the top do not appear to me to go through the top. I can see no sign of them on the inside. There appears to have been one small crack on the back that looks to have been glued. You can see this in the picture taken of the inside of the guitar. This was done before I owned the guitar. There is wear around the pick guard and sound hole as shown in the pictures. This was the way I got it. The finish on the back of the guitar does not have the same sheen as the front. The finish is more matte. I am not an expert and don't know if this means that the back was refinished or not. It's never been an issue to me but better to mention it now. The serial number is T 6105 13. So much for the condition details.
