Reduced! Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst, 1962

Reduced! Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst, 1962

This Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst is in clean condition and plays quite well. It appears to have been recently refretted, which included cleaning up the rosewood fingerboard. There are a few minor spot touch ups on the neck to fill dents. These were done competently and probably at the same time as the refret. There is also a colour touchp on the top at the lower treble bout edge, a bit of fill on a finger wear area between the pickguard edge and the bridge, and a touchup of some pick marks below the bass side soundhole.

SOLD!!! Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2003

SOLD!!! Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2003

Bourgeois guitars also tend to have relatively high neck angles, so there is more saddles exposed. In the short term, this means a bit more volume from the steeper angle of the string back to the pin. In the long term, it means that the guitar isn’t likely to need a neck reset for quite some time. Most steel string guitars will over time require a reset, and this can be an expensive proposition. Bourgeois seems to be taking a longer view with the higher angle.

SOLD!!! Eastman E20D-SB Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2005

SOLD!!! Eastman E20D-SB Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2005

The Eastman E20D is the less decorated cousin to the Eastman E40D we posted recently, but even without the decorations it’s an impressive and classy guitar.
This example was built at the Eastman plant in China during 2005 and has been both played in and well looked after. It’s set up for bluegrass use, meaning that the action is a little higher for spirited playing, competing with other percussively loud instruments like banjos and mandolins.

SOLD!!! Eastman E40D-SB Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2017

SOLD!!! Eastman E40D-SB Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2017

Taking design cues from the Martin D-42 dreadnought, the Eastman E40D shows the lines and visual features of the most successful guitars in a natural or sunburst top dreadnought. It’s well decorated, but not overly so and makes for a great sounding, tasteful and classy instrument.
