The adjustable knobs at both ends of the bridge are impressive, made in 1956!

Production began in 1954. The Gibson J-160E is regarded as the cornerstone of the electric acoustic guitar, and was used by John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and other Beatles members, as well as Frank Zappa.

This guitar was made in 1956 and has the same body shape as the J-45, with ladder bracing and a laminated body to reduce feedback. The pickups are Gibson P-90 single coil pickups, which are famous for Les Paul and SG, etc. The sound is powerful and electric. It has a powerful and electric sound with an adjustable bridge for a crisp and clear sound.

The body is covered in weather check, semi-glossy, and historical scratch marks, giving it a cool vintage look. Even the crack marks are in the atmosphere. It's also made of the finest Jacaranda wood, which is black and full of grain. The sound is crispy and dry, very vintage. You can't get the vintage style and sound from the current model. Please enjoy it!
