Gibson - J-180E Sunburst (1964)

It was John's (Lennon) favorite acoustic and now it's ours too! Want an incredible quality example we have here, 1964 no less. Fabulous tone, balanced bass, a tight mid-range, and perfect for everything from flat-picking to good ol' Rock n Roll. This very same acoustic guitar was the one used on recordings such as Help, Love me Do, Eleanor Rigby, Norwegian Wood, and numerous other classics.
From Elvis, through Johnny Cash to Noel Gallagher and back again numerous Rock n Roll greats have grabbed a vintage Gibson acoustic for that impeccable balance between awesome acoustics (always with built-in pups for that 'Ready to Rock' package).

This guitar is stunningly preserved with a super straight neck and fully working electronics making it a wonderful collectible showpiece and a great player's guitar too.
