Sunburst, a beautiful example from the small pickguard era. Adirondack Spruce top on solid Honduran Mahogany back and sides. Repair history includes: a new bridge (nicely done of old dark rosewood), repaired seam crack, strap button hole filled on heel, some touch up at soundhole around fingerboard as a result of neck set? and recent neck reset and crack repair. Otherwise other than our unusual honesty about these repairs the guitar is a nice example with no abuse and original tuners in the nice brown hard case. The tone is wonderfully thumpy with that clean strong midrange these are known for. Know the difference between a J-45 and an SJ (besides trim?) Tucked braces that tuck into the kerfing. Bringing the internal structure into a more unified tone maker. $5950 Go to for more photos.
