1952 Gibson J-50 Natural Fixed Saddle
Here is a 1952 Gibson J-50. Natural Finish, Small Tortoiseshell Pickguard, Fixed Saddle, Z Factory Order Number, and Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard. The guitar displays lots of play wear with nicks, dings, finish checking, and scratches. It has a big, resonant, and open sound that we find can often only be achieved when an acoustic instrument has been played over the years. It plays easily up and down the neck with an amazing amount of resonance. The first 8 frets have been professionally replaced for optimum playability. The no logo Kluson tuners have been rebuttoned in the past and one slightly newer bridge pin. We see no cracks or crack repairs. Included is an aftermarket hardshell case. HSC $6495

1957 Gibson Southern Jumbo SJ Acoustic
For your consideration is a 1957 Gibson Southern Jumbo Acoustic Guitar. Sunburst Finish, Fixed Saddle, Parallelogram Inlays, Large Rounded Neck Profile, Spruce Top and, Mahogany Back & Sides. Very Good vintage condition displaying play wear with nicks, dings, and finish checking. The guitar once had a large pickguard on the top. It has been removed with four filled screw holes on the top. Strip tuners were installed in the 1970s after the original tuner buttons crumbled. We have installed aged repro kluson tuners with a couple of extra screw holes visible. The guitar has been setup including the first 8 frets have been professionally replaced for optimum playability and newer bridge pins. The guitar has a big resonant tone. The 12th fret action is 4/32" on the bass side and 3/32" on the treble side. The factory order number is faint on the neck block. After some help from a magnifying glass we are confident it is a U corresponding to a 1957 production date. Here is a great sounding acoustic from Gibson's Golden Age. HSC $5495
