1944 Gibson J-45
1944 Gibson J-45 in very good condition. Rare version with maple neck, back, and sides. All around one great Gibson jumbo with fantastic projection. The low end on this particular acoustic is extraordinary due to the maple, and the trebles are balanced and clear. This was re-topped by Gibson in 1950/51. Sides and neck are oversprayed, most likely when re-topped. Totally crack free, some water damage on the lower bout but it is structurally solid and does not affect the sound. Neck shape is what you expect from a 1944 Banner Gibson guitar, big, round, and comfortable. A unique instrument all around, and a personal favorite of ours. Comes with a hardshell case.
