❌ Sold ❌ Gibson J-160E Steel String Acoustic Electric Sunburst, 1966

❌ Sold ❌  Gibson J-160E Steel String Acoustic Electric Sunburst, 1966

The Gibson J-160E is one of the most recognisable steel string guitars, due largely to a series of recordings and performances during the early 1960s by The Beatles. Both John Lennon and George Harrison had J-160E models, while McCartney used an Epiphone Texan strung as left handed. Though it looks a lot like the traditional classic J-45 round shoulder dreadnought, the Gibson J-160E has major structural differences. First, because the design goal was to reduce feedback at high stage volumes, the guitar body is entirely laminate, including the top. Rather than X-braced, the top is strongly Ladder braced.

Gibson J-50 Koa Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2007

Gibson J-50 Koa Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2007

The J-50 appeared in 1942 as a ‘higher grade’ version of the J-45 and the Gibson J-50 Koa is a slight variation, with Sitka Spruce top and Hawaiian Koa for the back and sides, and an Ebony fingerboard and bridge.

The primary difference between the J-45 and the J-50 is the use of visually higher graded woods, allowing the J-45’s sunburst to be replaced with the J-50’s natural top.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-45 Rosewood Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-45 Rosewood Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2005

The Gibson J-45, produced since 1942 with only one brief pause, is one of my favourite guitars. The round shoulder mahogany dreadnought body and spruce top produces a warm, rich tone that works really well with voice. From 1999 to 2006, Gibson produced a variant of the venerable J-45, the J-45 Rosewood using Indian Rosewood instead of mahogany with all the warmth of the original plus extra depth and power.
