Vintage 1950 Gibson J-45 Acoustic Guitar - Jumbo For Sale
* * sale *
* * *
This isa particularlynice example of one of Gibson's classic Post
War flat tops. The tone exhibits the
usual throaty midrange character found in better mahogany
back-and-sidesguitars of the era. This instrument, however, has a more
scarce high-end sweetness and balanced low-end. Its light weight likely contributes
totherelatively resonant and lively character.
The action is low and
even. In fact, the intact, original
saddle could be slightly higher to accommodate harder playing styles. I
decided to leave the saddle alone and let the next proud owner adjust to taste.
I toyed with the idea of installing
medium gauge strings which, without a doubt, would make this guitar bark. (This
is all GOOD NEWS. Often, the saddle on a vintage acoustic needs to be lowered
to offset a shifting neck angle . Not the case here! There's plenty of room to adjust the saddle
height up and still retain excellent action while delivering greater downward
pressure and even better tone!)
There are two MINOR
condition issues worth mentioning: First,
some misguided individual installed Grover tuners once upon a time. It was a clean job but I have since had
Elderly Instruments retro-fit new (but period correct) machines with proper
conversion bushings. Second, a barely
perceptible crack (more of a "wrinkle") formed near the treble side
at the pickguard edge (due to shrinkage no doubt). It wasbeautifully shored up along with
two loose back brace edges while at Elderly's shop. They also leveled and dressed the frets.
The guitar ships with a
new, high quality ABS hardshell case.
buyer pays $50.00 shipping & insurance within lower 48 states.
