We present an original 1946 Gibson J-45 in its original Sunburst finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
There really is nothing like a vintage Gibson tone. This crack free 1946 J-45 is a prime representation of what all the commotion is about. Very strong, woody basses and crisp, cutting trebles combine with dry open Gibson sound. This flat-top has scalloped bracing with a gorgeous spruce top. The guitar plays beautifully with low action and clarity up the neck.
The neck profile is a comfortable slightly less full, rounded. Adjustable truss rod. The classic “script logo” silkscreen which was used on its own for less than two years. Everything about the guitar is just perfect. Architecturally this guitar is very close to a banner logo wartime J-45.
The original finish has beautiful finish checking and nicks and dings and other cosmetic play-wear. Bridge plate is the original skinny maple. The original frets and nut has plenty of life left. Original open-back Kluson tuners. As it’s common with these models, the plastic tuner tips are shrunken, so the cream buttons have been changed to newer vintage style.
Comes complete with its original chipboard case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
