Description

Would that Mississippi John Hurt were still alive--the tunes he'd croon with this baby tucked under his arms! We're looking at the real deal here, folks: true vintage: a 1957 Gibson Country Western. Mahogany back and sides, Spruce top, Ivoroid bindings, upside down Rosewood bridge. Fingerpicking blues or country tunes, and you'll get a feeling for what they sounded like 60 years ago, when they were being written! The bass is huge and fat and balanced with trebles that are clear--the perfect combination for Travis-style picking. You'll find this Country Western has that classic Mahogany bark in spades, coupled with a great, warm sustain that hangs in the air like smoke in a raucous barroom. This Gibson has been well taken care of all these years: after our very own Ken Jones reset the neck and refretted the Rosewood fingerboard, it's as though we just picked it up off the rack in 1957--and it's ready to make tunes for another 30 years, no problem. You'll be very hard-pressed to find many other vintage Gibsons that are in as good of shape as this here Country Western!
