This is an absolute "Hoss" of a guitar! Bigger tone than a lot of the Martins and Guilds I've played.

Fantastic 1969 Gibson J-50 acoustic guitar in great condition for sale. This is a great one and has such a deep rich tone that resonates around the whole room like a grand piano!

This ones got "That Sweet Gibson Sound" which you can search for many, many years or decades and still never find. You "Gibson guys" know what I'm talking about, and you Guild, Taylor and "Martin guys" will be in for a pleasant surprise.

The play-ability and tone of this guitar is mind blowing, the older the Gibson the better they sound and this one has had 50+ years of aging to bring out the wonderful tone. It will hold it's own against any guitar made at any price. Great condition with some honest & respectable play-wear that any 50+ year old guitar would have and some checking in the clear lacquer finish, at one point there was small hole drilled in the side for a pickup that's now gone but over-all in great shape and structurally as solid as a rock. She plays like a dream with nice action and you wont want to put her down. She is a classy looking dreadnought and would be a wonderful addition to anyone's "stable" or "herd". All solid woods (Mahogany back/sides with Sitka or Adirondack Spruce top) and Comes none original hard-shell case as-well.

Huge bluegrass cannon tone that you flat-pickers will love! Shes got it all, big bottom end, sweet trebles and wonderful mid-range. I would have to say this one of the nicest sounding guitars I have owned and sounds better than most of the Guild, Martin or Taylor style dreadnoughts regardless of price or age.

Absolutely wonderful acoustic guitar that I would like to see go to a good home and someone who will respect and appreciate her. If your real tight on money I can let you have her for $1,085 without the case.

I'm willing to sacrifice this amazing instrument for $1,150.00 as I am thinning the proverbial "herd", (and that's a give away price for this guitar)! I am also willing to drive and meet half way up to 200+ miles (so if you were 200 miles away we would each drive 100 miles and meet about half way). I'm located in the Concord NH area. Or I would be willing to ship in a very well packed, foam filled safe as you can get box with insurance and tracking for the actual shipping cost (and my instrument packing is second to none!) Thanks for looking.
