50’s J-50 Original arrived!

Recommended Posts

Well, after waiting for a over a month my J-50 arrived.   The folks at Music Villa did a great job taking care of my request to remove the pickup and install a new bone saddle with setup.  This is my first Gibson and it likely won’t be my last.

Thanks it sounds as good as it looks.  The neck is a chunky  C shape that is comfortable and confident.   The color tone of the body, top and binding are  well  executed.

VERRY nice. Such an understated, simple look- the cream tuner buttons are appreciated, and 'glad they didn't hide that nice mahogany around back, either.

This one will age nicely. Enjoy.

Congrats on the guitar.  

The description of these Gibson neck carves I have always liked  is "Mid- Century Modern C."

Welcome Aboard !    What a beauty- a real classic that will age well.  Bet you get blisters on your fingers by tomorrow !    It will sound better as it gets  'played in".
