Simplicity, the great American writer and naturalist Henry David Thoreau once preached, is the key to happiness. If we are to believe old H.D., then this is the ultimate guitar—a slab of air-dried mahogany, a single P-90 pickup and simple volume and tone controls. For any number of reasons, this guitar embodies Gibson’s celebrated early 1960s quality. First, it’s featherweight and resonant. Second, unlike so many of its brethren that have suffered old neck breaks, this guitar has defied gravity for more than 45 years and has zero issues with the neck or headstock. Third, it’s all original. A couple of small body dings and a pair of superficial cracks running parallel to the jack (where someone long ago pulled too hard on the cord, perchance?) are about the only mars we could find on this otherwise excellent instrument. All of which brings us to the tone. Put simply, this guitar sings. SOLD
