1948 Gibson J-50



1948 Gibson J-50

   Rectangular bridge model......such a rare thing.  Dylan's J-50 was a year before this example and they were both constructed exactly the same.  Banner specs with rectangular bridge, tapered headstock, light scalloped bracing and as light as a cigar box.  This era Gibson makes great noise and this is no exception to that observation.  Powerful, crisp and woody, it is the epitome of the dreadnought guitar.  A few healed cracks to the bottom bout that probably make it sound better and otherwise, it's all original.  Find another '48 J-50 any time soon.  They are like chicken lips !!!
