1954 Gibson J-50

FON X8891-5. In very fine condition, with perfect action and excellent tone, this J-50 scores particularly high marks. It's completely original, and its issues are few: a minor pickguard crack, one well reglued brace end, and residual holes left from individual Kluson tuners that had been previously installed. In our repairshop the guitar has had a thorough set up and a set of original Kluson tuners (with new buttons) re-installed. Frets are in good shape, showing only minor wear, and the set up is comfortable, with our standard 5 to 7 64ths action.

Scallop-braced spruce top, mahogany back and sides, natural finish, round-carve neck with 1-11/16" nut, rosewood fingerboard, and original nut. Classic 50's Gibson tone and feel, particularly well balanced voice with strong and fat trebles.
With original hardshell case
