Our goal at Guitars ‘n Jazz is to find you the best possible instrument that not only matches your personal requirements and play-style, but is also a guitar that you enjoy playing and look forward to picking up.

We strive to price our instruments as competitively as possible in order to give our customers the best possible value for their dollar. And as a guitarist myself I would never sell an instrument that didn’t live up to my own high standards and expectations.

All of our instruments are thoroughly inspected, tested, professionally set up, and carefully packed for shipment. And all instruments are sold with our 72 hour satisfaction guarantee.

We encourage you to call us for the best price possible. We routinely have demos, closeouts, blemishes, and used instruments available for purchase. And if you happen to find a lower price please let us know.

And please keep in mind that it’s difficult comparing various instruments on the Internet. Since many of our guitars come standard with upgraded woods and tone controls shopping by price alone won’t tell the whole story.

Since our inventory changes so frequently it’s best to call us to find all of your available options. With over 500 archtops in stock you can be assured that we have unbelievable guitars to fit any budget.

Product Description

1964 Gibson Johnny Smith Sunburst archtop Guitar. Excellent condition with flamed back and flamed sides, and exceptionally good playing/working condition . The feel and tone are PURE gibson golden era. It is very light to hold and has a beautiful tone. When I imagine what a great classic gibson archtop should do ..this one does it. The guitar is 100% original except for a tone pot mounted next to the volume pot on the guard and cable jack moved from the guard to the traditional side position ala other Gibson archtops. The guitar was recently refretted in the Gibson original style and has virtually no fret wear. The guitar comes with the OHSC from 1964.
