Gibson B-25-12N Made in 1965. One that you can enjoy the retro 12-string sound!It is a B-25-12 made in 1965. A 12-string guitar with a trapeze tailpiece structure like this product does not have the sustain and glitter of a 12-string guitar with a general pin bridge structure, but it has a dry sound that can be said to be a folk instrument. Recommended for those who want a sound like red berries. You can see dents, scratches, weather checks, paint film deterioration and cloudiness, head edge chipping and paint peeling, paint peeling on the top under the tailpiece bracket, rust and dullness of metal parts, etc.
However, it can be said that the usability and the degree of deterioration are generally suitable for the model year. Strap pins are retrofitted to the neck heel. In addition, there is a hole in the body end that has been machined with an end pin jack, and there is currently no end pin. Although it is not visible from the outside, a structure that seems to be used to reduce the bulge of the top is retrofitted inside the body. There is a screw holder on the back of the top, and the screw supported by the square bar that bridges the left and right inside the body is turned with a wrench to pull the top inward.
I don't know if it's because of that, but there isn't much bulge on the top. We repaired refrets, nuts, and back brace peeling at our partner repair shop.
Also, when it arrived at our shop, a non-adjustable saddle that seems to have been custom-made to the slot of the adjustable saddle was installed, but because the balance of the string height was not good, the wooden adjustable that seems to have been originally attached to this guitar now. Although the truss rod is in a good condition, the nut of the rod is deep in the threaded part of the rod (the head of the rod is protruding from the nut of the rod), and it is for general Gibson products.With a box wrench, the depth of the socket is too short to hold the nut on the rod. Use a socket with a long depth. Since it has just been inspected and adjusted, the neck condition is appropriate and the playability is perfect.
You can enjoy the vintage-like withered resonance. The unique sound that can only be produced with a 12-string guitar with a trapeze tailpiece structure matches bard-like narration and blues.Top: Spruce Side Back: Mahogany Neck: Mahogany Bridge Fingerboard: (Possively) Brazilian Rosewood Year of manufacture: 1965 Accessories Hard case Serial 303704 Year of manufacture unknown Serial number 303704.
