Firstly, I absolutely love J50's. While everyone tends to gravitate to the J45, the J50 is the same guitar in natural, and can most often be found as a "bargain" in the vintage world. This one is special, and is in great shape for a guitar from 1956. All original, except for a new Gibson hard shell case. Has that great woody tone that only an old-wood slope shoulder can deliver, and is a joy to play with it's 24.75" scale. Don't think this will hang around too long.
