For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1958 Gibson J-160E

This fantastic 1958 is in superb collector condition. It sounds amazing and comes with its original brown Lifton hardshell case. The J-160 E  was used by many famous players including John Lennon, George Harrison, Barry Gibb, Lightin Hopkins & many others. 

The J-160E was Gibson's second attempt at creating an acoustic-electric guitar (the first being the small-body CF-100E). The basic concept behind the guitar was to fit a single-pickup into a normal-size dreadnought acoustic guitar. The J-160E used plywood for most of the guitar's body, and was ladder-braced, whereas other acoustic Gibsons were X-braced. The Brazilian rosewood fingerboard had trapezoid inlays, and the guitar had an adjustable bridge. For amplification, a single-coil pickup (an uncovered P-90) was installed under the top of the body with the pole screws protruding through the top at the end of the fingerboard, with a volume and a tone knob.

Collector owned, this guitar is in superb shape!
