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 !
