1958 Gibson J 50 accoustic guitar Auction
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-18)

The tuners on it are later Klusons but the originals will go back on with no issues if you can find a set in as good of condition as the guitar. The neck profile is a large C, stereotypical late 50s fat Gibson neck that everyone just loves. The playability is superb with low action and a perfectly strait neck.
