    Description

    1953 Gibson SJ Sunburst Acoustic Guitar, Serial # Y5083. Bright, clean original finish. Three or four areas of amateur touch-up attempts to top finish. Tuners have been replaced with newer bolt-through style Grover deluxe tuners. Bridge may be an excellent quality replacement in the correct size and shape. Top is loose from interior x-brace and will need to be re-glued. Original frets are worn low. Quarter-inch input jack hole in lower bout. Very worthy of professional restoration. Original soft case included. Condition: Very Good.
