1939 Gibson J-35 SOLD

1939 Gibson J-35 SOLD

The Gibson J-35 featured a spruce top with mahogany for the back, sides and neck, and rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge. Originally, the available finish was sunburst, as this hides many visual flaws in otherwise good-sounding and usable wood, which in turn lowers costs and price.

1955 Gibson J-45 (SOLD)

This 1955 Gibson J-45 has clearly been played, and has had some work done over the years; the original strip-mount Kluson Deluxe tuners have been replaced with Grover Roto-Matic models and a Fishman pickup with endpin jack has been added, and at some point the bridge was replaced with a fixed-saddle design.

1958 Gibson J-45 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

The immensely successful slope-shoulder dreadnought design of the Gibson J-45 produces a distinctively warm, full tone with sparkling highs and rich midrange tones, and a well represented but not booming bottom end. It’s also fairly loud, but not overwhelmingly so.

1963 Gibson J-45 Sunburst (consignment) SOLD

1963 Gibson J-45 Sunburst (consignment)  SOLD

The Gibson J-45 is justifiably one of the most popular steel string guitars ever. The physical design of the slope-shoulder dreadnought is comfortable standing or sitting – not too large – and the tone is full, rich and warm without being boomy in the bottom or harsh in the high end. It fits perfectly into many musical genres.

1944 Gibson J-45 (SOLD)

Here’s a great early piece – a 1944 Gibson J-45, built during the third year of production. Drawing heavily on the design of the just-discontinued J-35, the J-45 mostly differs with stiffer X bracing, tall, thin and scalloped top bracing, a fatter, non-V neck profile, and only being available with a sunburst finish.
