1964 Gibson SJN Country Western Dreadnought Steel String Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Gibson SJN appeared in 1956 as a natural top version of the successful Southern Jumbo, and had the model name ‘Country Western’. In 1962, square shoulders arrived, and the name was lengthened to ‘SJN Country Western’. The model was discontinued in 1978.

This example dates to 1964, with the square shoulders and three-point pickguard. The top is Spruce, with mahogany for the back, sides and fingerboard, with Rosewood for the fingerboard and adjustable bridge. It’s in original condition except for the tuners; the original Kluson models have been changed to Sperzel CF Martin models. The paper label has faded and is largely unreadable. This guitar is fresh from being set up in our shop, and plays very nicely. It’s got a full, bright sound, with a bit more top end than the typical round shouldered models like the J-45. The original black hardshell case is included.
