❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-35 Round Shoulder Flat Top Natural, 2013

❌SOLD❌  Gibson J-35 Round Shoulder Flat Top Natural, 2013

Built from 1936 to 1942, the Gibson J-35 round shoulder model, formally known as the Jumbo 35, replaced the more expensive Jumbo, whose sales were poor due to the ongoing Great Depression.  The very first models were named the Gibson Trojan. In 1942, the Jumbo 35 was itself replaced by the very successful J-45 model. The Gibson J-35 round shoulder jumbo and the J-45 have many visible and structural similarities. Both feature a Jumbo body with Spruce top paired with Mahogany for the back, sides, body blocks and neck, with Rosewood for the bridge and fingerboard.

Eastman E10SS/V Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Antique Varnish

Eastman E10SS/V Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Antique Varnish

Showing strong influences from the classic American Slope Shouldered dreadnought line, the Eastman E10SS/V uses all solid woods and a very nice Antique Varnish finish. The earliest dreadnought guitars were built by Martin for the Oliver Ditson company during 1916, and used the round or slope shoulder format seen here; When Martin finally put the dreadnought into production in 1931, the upper bouts or shoulders were squared.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-50 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1953

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-50 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1953

The Gibson J-50 first appeared alongside the J-45 in 1952 as a pair of slope or round-shouldered dreadnoughts, the J-50 in Natural and the J-45 Sunburst. These models replaced the J-35, built from 1936 to 1942. The two guitars are structurally very similar, but the natural-finish J-50 received multi-layer top binding and better visual grade Spruce tops as there was no tint to hide imperfections. For this reason, the J-50 carried a higher price.
