Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957 ( No Longer Available)

Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957 ( No Longer Available)

The Gibson Country Western Model debuted in 1955 as a miracle of rebranding – it is the classic Gibson SJ-N, Southern Jumbo Natural, with a new label! The SJ-N appeared in 1942, became the Country Western in 1955,  was again renamed the SJ-N in 1960,  and  finally dubbed the SJ Country Western in 1962.   The model was discontinued in 1977. The Gibson Country Western model, like the SJ-N, pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

Here we have a Gibson J185 Original Jumbo bodied steel string in Antique Natural finish, built during 2005 at the Gibson Acoustic plant in Bozeman, Montana. The J-185 is a very good but likely under-appreciated guitar, being overshadowed by the better known and slightly larger J-200. The Gibson J185 and J200 have many similarities and the key differences are not always seen at first glance. Both feature the Jumbo body shape, Sitka Spruce top with Figured Maple for the sides and back, and Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson LG3 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1949

The Gibson LG3 was built from late 1942 to 1963 as an entry level model, but its production was suspended months after its launch due to WW2.  It was introduced with the LG1 and LG2, but from 1943 to 1945, only the sunburst LG2 stayed in production.  All three models were similar in appearance, but the LG1 and LG2 were ladder braced while the LG3 had what’s now the standard X bracing. In 1963, the LG3 was replaced by the B25-N (for Natural Finish Top).
