This is one of the owners own guitars and he has decided the time has come to pass it on. It’s an original 1969 Gibson J160E and is it good shape for it’s age with only minor body wear. The varnish has crazed over time but this just adds to it’s vintage feel.
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. In the early ’60s Gibson started an adjustable saddle in the bridge.
