As this is my personal guitar, an off-website cash deal, Venmo payment or Friends and Family Paypal payment could net you a better price - email or call for info if this would work for you.

This has been my personal acoustic for about 11 years or so.  I've recently wrapped up a restoration project on a 1951 Gibson J50 that belonged to a dear friend who passed away.  As the J50 entered the fold, something must go so I reluctantly and posting my beloved AJ.  I'm willing to do a direct deal with a buyer via Venmo or Paypal Friends and Family for a little less.  Contact me for info.

The guitar has always received many compliments for its big voice.

Despite being a reissue of a classic Gibson, the neck is quite slim - I guess you'd call it their 60s profile.  Note that it has a 25.5" scale length, something I looked for when I picked it up.

One small area on the bass side of the bridge has lifted ever so slightly.  It has been like this for years. 

There are no changes or modifications.  When I got the guitar it was basically new.  I play it in fits and starts, so it is still in excellent condition.  Truss rod is effective.  No cracks or repairs.
