Help dating a J50


Recommended Posts

I recently inherited a guitar from my father-in-law. It is the fullest, most rich sounding acoustic I have ever heard. He always said it is a Gibson, but there is nothing on the head-stock and there is no sticker inside the body. The only marking on it anywhere is the serial number. I found some paperwork from 1983 when he sent it to Gibson in Kalamazoo and had some work done and that confirms the make. The paperwork shows that it is a "J-50 N" with serial # X791122, which matches the one I found in the body. Unfortunately I'm striking out with the online serial number decoders. Can I get some info on this guitar? I mostly interested in finding out what year it was made, but any info is welcome. Thanks!
