SORRY SOLD - KILLER VINTAGE TONE! EX condition w/numerous professional repairs...based on FON 0353 31 and features this great sounding vintage Gibson J-50 (Natural Finish) was most likely made in the mid 1950's, we're thinking 1955. While this one is definitely not a museum piece, it is a fabulous sounding, loud, articulate, booming vintage Gibson J-50, set up to perfection, comfortable '50s neck, neck is straight, all new original style frets, plays and sounds amazing! Pumpkin colored Sitka top shows considerable pick wear, scratches, scrapes and dings, light colored Mahogany back and sides also show normal wear typical for an instrument that's been played a lot, Mahogany neck has some light capo marks, original pickguard(?), replaced tuners, strap pin installed at neck heel. There were numerous top, back and side cracks and a 1" hairline crack at the very top of the headstock all of which have been checked out carefully by our luthier and everything has been glued up tight, bracing is all intact and tight, and the entire guitar is in top structural and playing condition, sounds awesome. Includes an active (9V battery) undersaddle pickup. This very cool looking Gibbie is ready to go, no worries, lots of mojo and would be perfect for a performing musician who wants a stage-ready vintage Gibson flattop in their hands. Comes with non-original HSC. A very special guitar that we know you'd really love! SOLD
