VINTAGE GIBSON ACOUSTIC GUITAR J40 1974 or 75 LOTS OF FUNKY REPAIRS

 

Vintage Gibson acoustic guitar from the early 70s. I believe it is a j40 (which is fairly rare) I can not find any markings except hte Gibson on the headstock and serial number. The serial number is 690145 I think, as it is faint, and "Made in USA" under it again, faint.  I think it is either a 74 or 75 according to the serial numbers. Tuners are repo Gotoh.  A simple black binding on the body. Spruce top, mahogany back and sides. Missing the pick guard, has been glued in multiple places. A slight repaired crack on back. Also shimmed under the upper nut. The guitar has had all kind of repairs.  A lot of them with what looks like super Gorilla glue? Braced in multiple places, as photo shows, all around the neck inside, and feels like a brace inside above the sound hole. The neck has had a couple of cracks around it and has been repaired.. reglued.. rebraced..The side has had a crack.. and down both sides of the neck on the front towards the soundhole, even on the bottom of guitar. However, it's amazingly solid. Just think of how many repairs Willy's guitar has had!  Photos should be self explanatory. The bridge is pulling a slight bit at bottom.. The neck is fairly straight ( just a slight bow), and I have shown the action at the 12 th fret(not too bad). Plays well, and I have had it tuned and in the case for several months and it's held its tune. This guitars has seen more partys than the Stones.  SO, it plays and I am showing as many problems as I can INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ..email for shipping quote...if you have NO knowledge of guitars, go buy a new one, this is a well worn repaired Gibson (even if it was repaired funky) and it still sounds big. I am selling it AS IS and as always open to offers.   What you see is what you get!!
