Used Gibson J-50 (1968)

Sale price$1,999.99


Pre-owned Gibson J-50 dating around 1968. This model in the 60's serial numbers are famously difficult to dial in exactly, but from what can see it seems to be around '68. Our team went through it and sealed and put in two cleats on the top for a crack that is seen below the pickguard. One cleat was already installed just before the bridge under the top. The adjustable bridge works perfectly and the action is 4/64 on the low and high E sides. Frets are played and are low/flat but play nicely. The condition shows a well loved vintage acoustic. The small, usual cracks have been sealed and cleated. Lots of wear, scratches, checking and usual wear throughout. The back has some finish imperfections from either the case or a strap, that shows a orange peal like looking strip along the back and by the rear strap button. Overall, good condition for a guitar of its age!
