Gibson dating acoustic

Rated 4.55/5 based on 958 customer reviews

I bought it in the mid-1970s while I was at school and have loved it ever since.

I like small-body guitars and the sound is very mellow.

The B-25N featured a spruce top, laminated mahogany sides, a mahogany back, a rosewood fretboard with 14 frets clear of the body, dot inlays, 3-on-a-plate tuners, and the aforementioned plastic bridge.

The scale length is 24 3/4", the lower bout (body width) is 14 1/4", the body length is 19 1/4", and the body depth is 4 1/2".

In the early 1940s, World War II affected the availability of raw materials—arguably like no other point in time—and this included wood for building guitars.

I want a great workhorse Gibson acoustic guitar that's attractive without being too flashy.While the company’s B series guitars first appeared in the early 1960s, Gibson’s small-body guitars go back many years and a number of notable guitarists from Robert Johnson to John Hiatt have played them.Gibson’s first flattops were introduced in 1926 as part of their L series, and many variations were produced through the 1930s.It was available with a sunburst finish (B-25) or a natural finish like your B-25N.Other original-run B-series models included the B-15 (1967–1970), B-20 (1971–1972), B-25 3/4-scale (1962–1968), B-25 12-string (1962–1977), the B-45 12-string (1961–1979), and even a tenor version called the TG-25 (1962–1968).
