Today we’re looking at a very nice Gibson J-50 slope ‘Adjustable Bridge’ model built around 1961 at the Kalamazoo, Michigan plant. On this example, the bridge is Rosewood and uses the ceramic saddle. At some later points, a plastic bridge was used and the saddle insert was sometimes rosewood. The two Mother of Pearl dots on the bridge cover locating bolts, which also help prevent the bridge lifting over time.
This case is not original to guitar, and out of my stash.. But sure does look good together! And Period correct...
