Gibson B-25 Acoustic Guitar - 1968 Vintage - Pre-owned

  • Sale
  • Regular price $1,699.00

The Gibson B-25 is in great playing shape, sounds outstanding, and is an excellent candidate as a "player's grade" performance instrument. The action is low, even and has know buzzing or dead spots. This one plays very, very well. The tone is full and loud, with a nice top end that still cuts through cloudy mix.

The volume of this instrument is quite remarkable. The headstock has been repaired professionally, but is very stable and looks great. There is some some visible indications that the repair was done, but not until closer inspection. The face of the headstock has a faint area showing where the original break was, between the A and B tuning machines. The finish has multiple points of aging minor wear throughout, but still looks great both near and far.

The original adjustable saddle components were replaced with a bone saddle, and the gap in the bridge where the slightly-wider saddle components were has been filled with East Indian Rosewood to accommodate the gap. The nut appears to have been changed. There is a finish crack at the top seam that is stable and doesn't show any signs of separation. This is quite common on these models as well as vintage acoustic guitars in general. Despite these repairs, the guitar plays very, very well, and sounds spectacular. 

It appears as though the instrument was re-fretted, albeit, the work was done very well. The frets installed appear to wider than normal Gibson fretwire we've seen on other examples. These frets are in great shape, with no pitting or flattening to mention.  The original tuning machines were replaced with a set of Kluson strip tuners, and an LR Baggs Lyric pickup system was installed, making this an excellent stage instrument. This B-25 sounds great while plugged in.
