Overview

The first year of the Gibson J-160E electrified round shoulder dreadnought is unique from following years in that it uses a solid spruce top and has only 19 frets on the neck as opposed to 20 on all later models. Like the Epiphone Casino, this guitar's status has been greatly influenced by its use by the Beatles.

Notable Players: John Lennon, George Harrison, Barry Gibb
