I also purchased a 1969 J50, in fact it features the 25 1/2 scale measurement. This guitar have a quite balanced and a deep rich tone, excellent playablity all across fretboard, making beautiful fingering nuances. Having a long scale will easier allow lowered tunings with that Gibson round tones.

I have one too! I always wondered why they went long scale on these?

 

Another question on these - mine has no reinforcement along the back seam line, but I think I can see the seam on the back and the grain pattern matches on the inside and out. Were these solid wood backs or laminated backs, and if solid why no backstrip?
