|Comments|| Here’s a wonderful, seasoned Gibson J-45 from early 1949. Warm, full and resonant, but not overly bassy, this demonstrates the classic J-45 sound, the reason that this model has been so popular since its introduction in 1942.
This guitar has been used as intended over the last sixty-plus years, and there’s wear to prove it. That use also contributes to its great sound.
