Yet another little dog that thinks it’s a bull mastiff, this mid-’60s B-25 embodies all of the virtues that make this model a favorite with so many singer-songwriters, namely a comfy oval neck shape, and the dry, elevated midrange we associate with small-bodied Gibsons. Because this particular instrument has been played some, it’s unusually lively and resonant in all registers. It has an immediacy and thump (not to mention volume) in the bass frequencies, as well as impressive clarity and definition as you move up the neck into the realm of the skinny strings. Rosewood bridge (which no doubt contributes to the instrument’s pleasing tonal characteristic), some lacquer checking and a stable cleated crack on the spruce top, as seen in the photos, the mahogany back and sides are in good condition. Outfitted with a set of Kluson-style replacement tuners. Ships in a newer hardshell case. Sold!
