❌SOLD❌ Gibson J45 ADJ Slope Shoulder Acoustic Sunburst, 1966

❌SOLD❌  Gibson J45 ADJ Slope Shoulder Acoustic Sunburst, 1966

Here we’re looking at a Gibson J45 ADJ model, built likely during 1966 at Gibson’s historic Parsons Street shop in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It shows a number of 1966 features, including the Rosewood adjustable bridge and a thicker styrene pickguard with a Gibson logo engraved by the fingerboard tag. The original finish has been oversprayed, so the surfaces are quite smooth and glossy.

❌SOLD❌ Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom Adirondack and Sinker Mahogany Dreadnought, 2014

❌SOLD❌ Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom Adirondack and Sinker Mahogany Dreadnought, 2014

The Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom is, as the name suggests, and buyer-customized version of the ‘Traditional Dreadnought-Mahogany’ model, in this case with Adirondack Spruce top and Sinker Mahogany back and sides.The ‘Traditional Dreadnought’ dates back to around 1911, when C F Martin built a number of large bodied guitars for the Ditson company. In 1931, with the need for ever-increasing volume, Martin re-launched the design with then now-classic ‘D’ series guitars. This design has been the basis for many other guitar models by many other builders.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J50 Slope Shoulder Jumbo Guitar Natural, 1953

❌SOLD❌   Gibson J50 Slope Shoulder Jumbo Guitar Natural, 1953

The Gibson J50 Slope Shouldered jumbo model was introduced in 1947 as an ‘upgrade’ to the successful J-45, with a natural finish showing off the higher quality Spruce top. The J-50 was built until 1982, shifting to a square shoulder body design for 1969, and has been reissued from time to time. This is a relatively early Gibson J50, built during 1953 at the Gibson Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Built almost exactly like the iconic J45, this J50 uses Adirondack Spruce for the top and top bracing, with Mahogany for the back, sides, neck, body blocks, linings and back bracing.
