1961 Gibson J50

[1961 Gibson J50]

Very clean 1961 Gibson J50 for sale. Sounds excellent and plays like a brand new guitar. Has a nice boom with some punch as well.

Action at the 12th fret is on 4/64" on the treble and 6/64" on the bass, with the bridge saddle at ~3/16" in the center. Neck is nice and straight, and 1-11/16" at the nut. Not as narrow as some of their later instruments.

Has some assorted dings and scrapes that I would expect from a guitar of this age, but is in quite a bit better shape than most that I've seen.

Hardshell case included.
