1956 Gibson J-50 Natural
We present an original 1956 Gibson J-50 in its original Natural finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
There really is nothing like a vintage Gibson tone. This Gibson J-50 from 1956 is a prime representation of what all the commotion is about. Very strong, woody basses and crisp, cutting trebles combined with dry open Gibson sound.
This Gibson flat-top has scalloped bracing with a gorgeous spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The guitar plays beautifully with low action and clarity up the neck. The neck profile is a comfortable slightly less full, rounded. Everything about the guitar is just perfect. The original finish has beautiful finish checking and nicks, dings and other cosmetic play-wear. Bridge plate is also original. Newer double-line Kluson tuners.
The original frets and nut has plenty of life left.The pickguard has shrunken and caused the typical and common tiny crack next to the fretboard below high E-string, but this one is only superficial. Otherwise, a crackfree example. There ar no touch up or any overspray! 100% original finish.
Comes complete with its original chipboard case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
