About This Listing

1972 GIBSON J-100Natural. first year of reissue (Rare!) OHC Code AC155 Early 1970's J-100 Jumbo Acoustic Guitar is in excellent condition with a strong sounds built in 50 years of life. Overall the finish on the guitar retains plenty of its original gloss and the guitar looks great. The neck is straight, low action comfortable and the frets have plenty of life left. This Gibson J-100 is loud and has an excellent sounding low end projection while also being crisp and clear in the mids and highs. Come with the original hardshell case that is also in excellent condion. Solid Sitka Spruce Top - Solid Mahogany Back and Sides 3-Piece Mahogany Neck - Rosewood Fretboard w/ Mother of Pearl Dot Inlays - Rosewood Bridge - Multi-Ply Top Purfling and Soundhole Rosette - Black Body Binding - Enclosed Chrome Gibson Tuning Machines w/ Chrome Keystone Buttons - Black Single Ply Pickguard It would be almost thirty years before Gibson reissued the guitar, which it did in 1972. The J-100 as it was called retailed for less than $500. The body depth was increased to nearly that of the SJ-200, and the necks were now made of mahogany, as opposed to maple on the earlier model. It is apparently an usual model, with mahogany back and sides, a cedar top, and a teardrop pickguard. The lister says that only 140 of these guitars were made. Apparently, on the whole the J-100 was not as popular as the earlier models, and it was discontinued in late ’74–early ’75, with only some 300 guitars sold during that period.
