Gibson Country Western Model Steel String Guitar, 1957

Gibson Country Western Model Steel String Guitar, 1957

The Gibson Country Western Model made its debut in 1956 as a miracle of rebranding – it is the classic Gibson SJ-N, Southern Jumbo Natural, with a new label! Until 1964, this model – like other Gibson dreadnoughts – was a round shoulder design. At that point, it’s likely that market pressures like the popularity of the Martin style changed the shape to square shoulders.

SOLD! Gibson SJ Square Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1972

SOLD!  Gibson SJ Square Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1972

Here we have a vintage Gibson SJ from 1972 at the historic plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It features a Spruce top with Mahogany for the back, sides and neck, with Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge. The SJ is a somewhat more ornamented model, so the fingerboard is bound and has split-parallellogram position markers. It also features a standard adjustable saddle, in Rosewood; some earlier models used a ceramic saddle. The finish is the original sunburst executed in nitrocellulose lacquer. The scale length is longer than many other Gibson models at 25.5 inches. This brightens the tone slightly and brings the feel closer to Gibson’s main competitor, Martin.

The Gibson J-45 made its name as a workhorse guitar not long after its introduction in 1942, and they have been used by working musicians in countless gigs. Sometimes the gig needs more volume, and at some points adding a deArmond soundhole pickup was the way to go.
