1947 Gibson J-50
1947 Gibson J-50 in excellent plus condition. Quite simply this is the cleanest all original 40s J-50 we have ever seen. All that was necessary to bring this time capsule back to life, was new tuner-buttons and a glue few loose brace ends. No cracks, no neck reset, no refret, no finish touch up, straight as can be. Nice full neck profile and full height original frets in great shape. Top is a very nice piece of Adirondack spruce. The original finish has checking and almost no wear. The sound leans towards the clarity and power of a fine D-18 or J-35. It is tight and powerful in the low end with meaty singing trebles. A fine sounding instrument indeed. Includes original soft case in excellent condition and rope strap.
