Gibson J-50 ADJ Steel String Natural, 1965

Gibson J-50 ADJ Steel String Natural, 1965

Introduced in 1947 as an postwar upgrade to the venerable J-45, the Gibson J-50 was essentially the same guitar with a natural finish top and from 1956, an adjustable saddle became available. The center strip received a ‘J-50 ADJ BRIDGE’ stamp. The J-45 itself was launched in 1942. Early into WW2, wartime materiel shortages forced a change from Adirondack Spruce, used in aircraft production, to Sitka.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-50 ADJ Slope Shoulder Natural, 1968

The Gibson J-50 ADJ Slope Shoulder Dreadnought models were produced in tandem with the better known J-45, with the difference being the J-50’s natural vs the J-45’s sunburst top. This sometimes meant that the J-50’s used visually higher grades of Spruce, but the two guitars are otherwise identical.
