This is a wonderful example of a late '60s Gibson J-45, featuring a Tobacco Sunburst finish and Gibson 'Soundwave' logo pick guard only found in this production year. This 1968 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 features minor amounts of play wear and patina, as is to be expected from an instrument of this age. 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 a non original belly up Rosewood bridge with the adjustable saddle that was the standard at the time for Gibson acoustics.
This guitar is in very good, original condition, with the exception of the non original bridge. The only work that has been carried out on the guitar is a top crack that runs in line with the high E string, which has been repaired by our luthiers, and a reglue of the bridge along with a set up.
This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
