Up for sale is a beautiful 1965 Gibson C-8 Classical Guitar in Good Plus condition and perfect working order. We just gave this a pro set up and put some new strings on so it plays well with medium classical guitar action and it sounds exceptional.

Cosmetically, this instrument is clean but does exhibit the typical signs of use most well loved and played guitars do such as: there are dings, swirling, scratches and lots of finish checking (mostly on the top) scattered throughout. The original frets look great still with no real discernible wear to speak of. See pics for condition and please excuse any reflections.

There are no truss rods in these of course and this one has a bit of relief in the neck but it still plays well, as previously mentioned. The action measures 9/64th’s on the treble side and 5/32nd’s on the bass side at the 12th fret. There’s a small repaired crack on the back at the center seam just south of the neck heel and a small piece of binding is starting to separate on the back. Lastly, the top has some mild ripples south of the bridge. It was hard to photograph but you can feel them with your fingers when you run them across the top. This doesn’t really affect anything and is mostly cosmetic in nature. There is no top sag though and the neck set still looks good. All in all, this is a solid axe.

This piece is on consignment so all sales are final. Please feel free to ask any questions. Comes with the original hard shell case that’s in nice shape but has a replaced handle. It also smells quite musty. Nothing bad just old. The guitar weighs 3lbs 11.5oz. The nut width is 2.00”.
