Body: Spruce top with mahogany back and sides

Neck: Mahogany neck with a medium-round profile, 1 9/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays (marked "2" on the back of the headstock, signifying a factory second)

Pickups/Hardware: Gibson tuners, no electronics

Cosmetic Condition: There is some heavy checking throughout the guitar but overall it is looking good for its age. There are four repaired cracks in the top but the guitar is structurally sound. The back and sides have more heavy checking as well as minor scuffs and scratches from buckle rash but no serious damage. The checking lines continue up the neck and headstock but overall both are glossy and clean with only some minor dings around the edges and exposed drill holes from the original tuners. This J-50 is perfect for any lefty looking for a great vintage acoustic!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The bridge has been converted from a Gibson "ADJ" style to a lefty bone saddle style. There are 4 repaired top cracks. The tuners have been replaced.
