1964 Gibson SJN Country Western SN. 199151
This one-owner guitar is 100% original including the hard shell case and structurally in excellent condition, cosmetically excellent as well. The finish is exceptionally clean, shows only slight dings and a few nicks from play and handling, way below average for a 57 year old guitar. Even the heel is unmolested, never drilled for a strap button. There is one finish ding behind the 2nd fret on the neck that I've shown in the pics, minor but visible. The inside is as clean as the outside (same with the case). The original Kluson Deluxe tuners are in great shape functionally and cosmetically with no plating loss or bent shafts, they work smoothly. The neck is straight under tension and the truss rod is working properly. The frets are in great shape showing little or no wear. The original tortoise colored 'bat wing' pickguard is present and is flat and securely attached. The only conspicuous repair to the guitar is a top crack that runs from the binding to the bridge on the bass side. The crack runs parallel to the grain and is clean, no splinter or gap. The repair is tight, level and stable, reinforced with three thin and light weight spruce cleats on the inside. There was also a recent bridge plate repair (glue/wood shaving repair to remedy chips between the pin holes) and one loose back brace reglued. The guitar needs nothing at this time. The action is set at 7/64" and 6/64" at the 12th fret (measured at low E and high E) with plenty of adjustment room left in the saddle and the neck showing minimal relief. Comfortable for flat picking or finger picking. Nut width of 1 11/16", pin spacing of 2 1/16". Sounds great, as you'd expect. $3495
