Original 1967 Gibson J-200 Acoustic - Solid Spruce Top with Solid Flame Maple Back & Sides - Inc. Original Period Hard Case (RI)

 

This is another Vintage Guitar originally shipped over from Andy's friend and vintage guitar contact Crawford in Nashville, Tennessee USA.

It is a gorgeous 1967 Gibson J-200 Acoustic and is totally crack free. All parts are 100% original including the gold Grover tuners, "Moustache Bridge", and flower motif pickguard. It has been fitted with a Piezo pickup, input jack, and control knobs some 20 years ago. These mods do not in any way detract from the beauty of this blonde bombshell, plus they mean you can now own this vintage "King of the Flattops" without breaking the bank and all for roughly the same price as a new one.

There is some checking along the centre of the spruce but the seam is still tight. The back of the body has light checking, but no scratches or belt wear. The face of the body has a few minor dings but only a tiny amount of pick wear along the top edge of the pickguard between the sound hole and the bridge. The back of the neck is pristine and the overall condition of this guitar is excellent and we would rate it conservatively 8.6/10.

The action is very comfortable and the neck angle is great. There's virtually no fret wear. As you'd expect, the sound of the guitar is large. There is a booming low end, but it does not drown out nice mids and highs. The tone is reminiscent of a 1950's vintage Gibson J200.

The neck has some of the best flame maple wood we've seen on any Gibson guitar. The back of the body has amazing birdseye and cloud maple wood. We've seen this type of wood on late 1940's Gibson Archtop Guitars, but never on a 1960's Gibson J-200.

If this guitar was pristine it would easily be up for £5,000+
