One of Gibson's early attempts at a production acoustic-electric guitar, the J-160e was a round-shouldered dreadnought with a single-coil pickup installed at the end of the fingerboard. This guitar features two control knobs, a Mahogany body, Spruce top, and Rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. This guitar's status has been greatly influenced by its use by the Beatles.

This particular guitar was made in 1958 so it’s a few years older and although the spec is mostly the same the neck is thicker compared with the one the Beatles played with.

Laminate spruce top adopting Ladder brazing offers a box-resounding allow you to savor a resonance of beautiful vintage sound.

With P-90 pickups which are the greatest feature of J-160E, it has a warm sweet plug-in sound when played.

Although there are slight swelling on latter part of top bridge, weather check on whole finished area due to aging and some scratches on back by a buckle, there is no fatal damage such as a crack.

Original thin frets have some dents and remains 60%. Neck and a rod are fine and this guitar keeps good performance condition. Also original Kluson pegs are attached, however, they are replaced with current Kluson pegs due to shrink.
