In this interview with Truevintageguitar.com Isakov says about his 1967 J-50 that it has had a neck reset, refret and had the adjustable bridge “fixed”. The tuning keys are reproduction Kluson keystones. It has the slimmer, late 60s neck and the setup is spot on. It has nice mid to low range with that classic Gibson Americana rumble.

"An ES-125. It was the nicest one I’ve ever played. Most of the mid range was gone, it was just super warm with a really buttery high end. But the mids were gone. It played so well and it sang really well. ’52. It was $1800 which was pretty much all I had. I didn’t buy it but I’ve been thinking about it all day. It’s in Austin at Austin Vintage Guitars. It’s like my favorite shop." - Isakov in an interview with truevintageguitar.com
G: I don’t love electrics, but I like electrics with just a little bite to ’em. The ES-125 has my favorite tone that I’ve found.
