This is a fine example of one of the best guitars ever designed by Gibson. Only 97 J-200 Sunburst Guitars were produced in 1959. Serial Number: XXXXX . This is certainly one of the best available on the open market today. The back is heavily flamed…one of the best ever. The guitar is completely original but for a few minor changes. The guitar has a few dings on the front of the guitar and some very minor dings around the edge of the headstock. There is a fine pickguard crack along the edge of the pickguard that runs from the end of the fingerboard to the soundhole. That is the only crack that I can find. There is medium finish checking on the lower bout around the bridge and pickguard. Otherwise, only very light checking on the back and sides. The Sunburst finish is original and strong. The tuners are the original Grovers (original equipment on J-200s starting in 1959). There is some finish wear on the sides of the neck in the first position as shown in the photos. There are an assortment of small dings on the front of the guitar and and light playing wear. The only changes from original are a bone saddle and a very nice re-fret. The guitar plays nicely with medium low action when strung with Elixir Acoustic lights. The saddle has plenty of room to be adjusted if even lower action is desired. The neck is straight and has never been reset. There are also no headstock cracks, breaks or repairs of any kind. This is a fine playing, wonderful sounding, guitar in collector condition. It also comes with the original case (brown with pink lining) in very good condition. All latches work minor scuffing only.If you email your address through the eBay question function, I can send many high-resolution pictures of the guitar, case, etc. Please ask for pictures. eBay has limited numbers of pictures that can be loaded. I have many more very high resolution pictures that I can email that will allow one to adequately evaluate the guitar. I have periodically bought...
