A killer 1958 J-50. This example has an impressively balanced tone with a focused high-end presence and tight low-end. Plays fantastic with a thicker 50s neck profile that feels great in the hands. This is an excellent, clean example of Gibson's quality craftsmanship! Includes Original Hardshell Case.

Check out the feature from our luthier Tyler in the ECG Newsletter:

"Whenever I’m asked about my opinion on the most underrated and underpriced guitars in the vintage market, and I am asked often, my first thought is always of Gibson J-50s from the 40s and 50s. There is a long-held and totally unspoken belief in the acoustic community that Gibsons should be finished in sunburst and Martins should be finished natural, and any deviation from this is sacrilege.

Because of this silly narrow-mindedness, models like the J-50 have been able to slip under the radar while Southern Jumbos and J-45s skyrocket in demand and popularity. In our experience, though, the higher-end J-50s were consistently crafted with finer tonewoods and superior craftsmanship, and are always among the finest Gibsons we have in stock. This particular instrument is incredibly clean with virtually no visible play wear, and comes complete with its original brown Lifton case and case candy. The original owner added their initials to the pickguard with decals early in its life, but you certainly don’t need to be “CRS” to appreciate this one." - Tyler Geske, ECG Newsletter
