National 1155 (Gibson) J-45 Style 1950

National Model 1155 Flat Top Acoustic Guitar from 1950, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan. With sunburst lacquer finish, mahogany back and sides, spruce top; mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, newer frets. When CMI, who had exclusive distribution rights for National/Valco, bought Gibson in early 1944, Gibson started building guitars for Valco up until 1961. These instruments were based upon the well known Gibson body styles, in this case the J-45 which became the N-45 which was renamed 1155. In 1949 Gibson stopped using the traditional dovetail neck joint, and National installed their own magnesium-core bolt-on neck called the "Stylist". The neck was held on by one large horizontal bolt and the fingerboard was held down by two screws onder the pearl dot markers, essentially the same construction as pre war resonators.  The FON in the body (5671 - 6) places this guitar in 1950 which is consistent with the Stylist neck. A very special, rare and great sounding instrument in excellent condition with no cracks or issues, beautiful weatherchecking and great playability. Includes newer hardshell case and built in piëzo pickup. Were selling this guitar in consignment.
