Gibson J-50 ADJ Guitar (SOLD)

This is a nice sounding and playing dreadnought. It has had a bridge conversion with a new bone saddle. The nut width is 1-5/8 inches, so it's for you narrow neck fans. There is a repaired hole in the side of the lower bout where a jack was installed many years ago. The photos of the headstock show the recently-replaced tuners. (Note that the other photos on this page show the previous Grover tuners.) The guitar has lots of finish crazing, which is typical of Gibsons of this era.
