Default 1953 Gibson J-50

Selling a war horse J-50 from 1953. Nice woods, some wear and scars, cleated pick guard crack, no other through cracks I can see.
Headstock has some paint stress. neck has been reset, action is great , newer tall frets. Mahogany on this one is superb! Open, woody sound with a good low end thump. With newer case, $4250 shipped.
Sound Sample:

This is a great price for a vintage J-50. J-50's have a better top wood grade since it's a natural finish and not "hidden" under a sunburst .
