Vintage Guitar Scene: 1970 Gibson J-160e, Sunburst

1970 Gibson J-160e, Sunburst (Serial No. 631022)

The J-160e model is famously associated with The Beatles although this is a later model than they used it still sounds similar.

When I bought this I was looking for a guitar for a roving jazzy gig using a small battery amp. It did the job. Occasionally it gets used for recording as an acoustic guitar and is mic’d up.
