VINTAGE 1955 GIBSON COUNTRY & WESTERN FLAT TOP ACOUSTIC BEAUTY ALL ORIGINAL

  • Price:$4.00

UP FOR SALE IS MY 1955 COUNTRY & WESTERN. THIS GUITAR COULD POSSIBLY BE THE FIRST ONE MADE, BECAUSE GIBSON RECORDS SAY THIS GUITAR WAS CALLED THE SOUTHERN JUMBO IN 1955. THE FACTORY ORDER NUMBER ON THE NECK BLOCK STARTS WITH THE LETTER W, WHICH INDICATES 1955. THE GUITAR IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE WITH NO CRACKS, AND IS ALL ORIGINAL! IT PLAYS VERY EASY AND THE ACTION IS LOW ALL UP AND DOWN THE NECK. THE FIRST FIVE FRETS HAVE A LITTLE WEAR, AND THE BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD IS STILL IN GREAT SHAPE. THERE IS NO STRING BUZZING ANYWHERE. THE NECK FEELS LIKE A MEDIUM TO ME, NOT TOO BIG AND NOT TOO SMALL. THE TONE IS BIG AND FULL, WITH EXCELLENT BASS, MIDRANGE, AND TREBLE. THE VOLUME AND SUSTAIN ARE EXCELLENT AS WELL. IF YOU LOOK CLOSE IN THE PICS, YOU CAN SEE THAT THIS GUITAR CAME WITH 2 PICKGUARDS, WITH ONE ON THE BASS SIDE AS WELL. IT WAS REMOVED A LONG TIME AGO BEFORE I BOUGHT THE GUITAR. SOME OF THE FINISH IS MISSING ON THE BACK OF THE NECK IN A COUPLE OF SPOTS, MAYBE FROM A CAPO. I TOOK GOOD PICS OF EVERY PART OF THE GUITAR, BUT IF YOU WANT TO SEE MORE I'LL BE HAPPY TO OBLIGE YOU. THE GUITAR WILL BE SHIPPED IN A VERY NICE HARD CASE THAT FITS PERFECT. DON'T HESITATE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS. PLEASE CHECK MY FEEDBACK.
