Vintage Gibson Acoustic Guitar

Please completely read this description.



I believe this guitar to be a 1970 Gibson J-50.  However, to be perfectly clear, I am not claiming that it is.  I offer no guarantees as to what model or even what year this guitar is.  From the best of my ability to identify older guitars and in consulting with other local guitar experts and consulting the “Gruhn’s Guide to Vintage Guitars”, I believe that I am correct in this assumption.

Other identifying features, again using the Gruhn book as a guideline:  It has a triple bound top (page 158) and shares many of the same features as a J-45.

square-shouldered dreadnought shape,

black teardrop pickguard with no logo,

25.5” scale-late 1969,

non-adjustable saddle-1970.  (Gruhn book, page 157).
