This is a fantastic example of a late '60s Gibson J-45, the original workhorse Gibson flattop guitar. This 1967 J-45 is in great condition with a sound and playability to match. Constructed from Spruce and Mahogany with a set Mahogany neck, this guitar is from the final production year before the top bracing was made much larger, resulting in a more resonant tone when compared with models from 1968 onwards. As with many Gibson acoustic of this period, it has a full bodied and focused sound, and responds beautifully to open chord and fingerstyle playing alike. The top features the original belly up Rosewood bridge with the adjustable saddle that was the standard at the time for Gibson acoustics, along with the larger design celluloid pickguard.
This guitar is in very good, original condition, with the exception of a set of repro Kluson double line tuners. There are some minor signs of play wear, primarily some dings to the top, but the guitar is free of any major repair work and retains its vibrant sunburst. This guitar also includes a non original case.
This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
