This is a very lightly used and still in excellent condition 1950's-inspired J-50 from Gibson - dubbed the 1950s J-50 Original acoustic-electric guitar. Classic “Workhorse” materials include a Sitka spruce top and select mahogany back and sides. The multi-ply top and single-ply back binding are subtlety antiqued making each instrument look just like a seasoned Gibson acoustic. Appointed with cream button tuners, a 1950s-era tortoise pick guard, and upgraded with an LR Baggs® VTC pickup for the best and most natural-sounding tone when amplified. The guitar was built just recently in 2020, and includes the original hardshell case. Just very light playwear to be seen on this one up close.
