⚌Reduced‼ 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.

Gibson J-160E Electric FlatTop Sunburst, 1956

Introduced in 1954, the Gibson J-160E flat top electric turned out to be one of the more successful of Gibson’s slope-shouldered dreadnoughts. Intended as a companion to the then-new Les Paul solidbody, the Gibson J-160E was one of the first mass production electrified steel string guitars. This model was discontinued in 1979, and is occasionally re-issued.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson J-45 Standard Vintage Sunburst, 2009

The Gibson J-45 Standard was rightly described as a workhorse in the steel string acoustic guitar field after its introduction in 1942. Used by legions of guitarists for countless gigs, recordings and personal playing, the round-shouldered J-45 was one of the two primary ‘Dreadnought’ designs (the other being the square-shouldered Martin D-body) that influenced many later builders.
