I was thinking of getting my dad's old acoustic repaired/ restored for his 60th birthday. I am not that well versed in this area. I've attached some pictures of the guitar. I could really use a hand determining what it actually is and if it would be worth repairing. The guitar has definitely seen better days. The serial number is 567013. I'd really appreciate it.

You're calling it a 1969 J-50 and that's what I would guess as well. It is a round shouldered model but they began with the belly-down bridge. This is typical of "around 1969". It went to a square shoulder style around 1970. Nothing is exact with Gibson.

Is it worth fixing? Hard to say! There are too many questions that can't be answered without an in-hand exam.
