1976 Gibson - Good buy?

Posted by Eddy on Mon, 07/04/05 - 05:12:52.

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1976 Gibson J45/50 that seems in good shape. Tuning pegs are not original, and have been replaced with black keys (don't know the brand name). The asking price is $1,600 Cdn. Guitar has a beautiful tone, but don't want to get soaked. Also concerned about resale value in future. Feedback?

Aaron:
It was in Halifax @ Gig Street - I didn't purchase based on information about 1970's Gibsons, and the cost was high.

I just bought one a month ago. And I love it. It completes me. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I also have a 1977 Les Paul Standard and the 2 make me very happy. Both great players. You have to love it. If you don't love it, you won't pick it up and play it. I keep both of mine out of their cases, on stands. So just grab and play. Forget about resale. Get what you love and will play.
