1955 Gibson J 50

1955 Gibson J-50

A truly lovely and very tidy example of Gibson's workhorse J-50.  I've always loved this model for it's clean lines and crisp, clear voice.  This example is superb from every perspective and has probably the best pickguard that I've seen on a Gibson.  All original and recently neck set, it is ready for the road.  Soncially, it's every bit a J-50.  These guitars have a very immediate attack, no wilting violet here......with great clarity in the note separation and a lively, powerful sound with lots of harmonics and a woody sustain.  Classic in every way.  2nd time thru this gallery.  Many luminaries in the acoustic guitar world used the J-50, among them James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Phil Oakes, etc.
