Product Details

[Store Product Code: 65003]

Production started in 1954. The Gibson J-160E is evaluated as having laid the foundation for the acoustic-electric guitar. It is also known to have been used by Beatles members such as John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and Frank Zappa. It is also famous for using Yosui Inoue and Kazuyoshi Saito in Japan.

This product is a gem made in 1956. The J-160E is a laminated body with ladder bracing specifications, but it has enough volume and sounds good! It is crisp and has a good balance. There is a history of repairing cracks according to the age, but you can get a wonderful sound! Of course, the electric output is also a fat and dynamic sound like a P-90! It is a wonderful gem with endless charm! Don't miss this opportunity!
