1966 Johnny Smith

don't even look at it . .

Yes , we know it's a lot of money BUT it's a lot of guitar !

This is not just the best Johnny Smith we've ever had , it might be the best jazz guitar we've ever had - it is an ABSOLUTE PEACH !

Its set up with 11s flatwounds at the moment - it's a joy - sounds incredible 

The condition is outstanding for the year - but of gold degradation - bit of lacquer checking but generally outstanding 

The back is phenomenal - the most beautiful piece of quilted maple ever 

But let's not get hung up on looks here - there are plenty of beautiful guitars out there 

This is a jazz players dream

and of course it was made by Gibson in '66 - arguably their finest period for electric archtops

and its in its org case - nice touch !
