GIBSON J40 DREADNOUGHT 1974 VINTAGE

The Gibson J-40 is a jumbo-style guitar with a solid spruce top and mahogany back, sides, and neck. Gibson introduced the line in 1971 as a "no frills," stripped-down, more economically friendly version of Gibson's famed J-45—something like the “Working Man” series which replaced the J-40 in the 1980s. This particular instrument was made in Kalamazoo, Michigan: its serial number (A401624) indicates it probably was made in 1974—although Gibson’s serialization is rather slippery in that period.

The earlier J-40 had rosewood strings-through bridges that were pinless [unlike this one], but later versions featured pins on the bridge. It had a 14/20-fret rosewood finger board with pearl dot inlay, a large tortoise pick guard, and full body binding. It had three-per-side “Gibson Deluxe” nickel tuners, and a screened logo on the blackface Gibson headstock. It was clearly designed to represent a working man’s guitar, with no frills and no fuss—nothing but the huge sound for which vintage Gibsons have been famous for decades.

HOWEVER, in 2004 a previous owner decided to add some “bling” to the “working man” image, and luthiers Phillip and David Petillo were contracted to make upgrades which are meticulously listed on an index card taped inside the sound hole. This included exotic woods and abalone on the truss rod cover, position markers, and bridge, with an elephant ivory nut and saddle, and Nigerian ebony pins and such(WHICH BY NOW REPLACED TOO) So now it looks kinda like a Martin D-45 superimposed on a Gibson mahogany body. The old nickel tuners have also been replaced with vintage-style open tuners. You’ll have to decide for yourself what you think of the effect—and effectiveness—of the mods, but it’s for sure nobody else at your jam will have a Gibson like this one!

Cosmetically, this 43-year-old veteran has fewer nicks and dings than you would expect, but there is a 1 ½” bruise along the top lower bout edge. There is perhaps a very faint “2” indented on the back of the headstock, possibly because of the finish, which has bled onto the spruce top around the edges (I personally think it looks kinda cool, like a minimalist sunburst, but I’m sure that in 1974 it was perceived as a flaw). The other issue is another typical Gibson problem: the tortoise binding is apparently drying or something all the way around, top and bottom; none is missing, but there is considerable discoloration and cracking despite some attempts to stabilize it, as is evident in the pictures. However, this ol’ boy sounds and plays great and is ready to go

The case is the original Gibson arched-top hard shell case—kind of a deluxe version with a royal blue plush interior. It is in good shape, inside and out, and the guitar fits perfectly. The hardware all works, and there are no significant tears in the exterior. It is an excellent vintage complement to this excellent and unusual guitar.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL AGED J40 WITH LOTS OF ROADWEAR A TRUE RELIC !!
