❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-45 Rosewood Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2005

The Gibson J-45, produced since 1942 with only one brief pause, is one of my favourite guitars. The round shoulder mahogany dreadnought body and spruce top produces a warm, rich tone that works really well with voice. From 1999 to 2006, Gibson produced a variant of the venerable J-45, the J-45 Rosewood using Indian Rosewood instead of mahogany with all the warmth of the original plus extra depth and power.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst, 1962

❌SOLD❌ 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.

❌NO LONGER AVAILABLE❌ Gibson Country Western Model SJ Natural, 1956

This Gibson Country Western was built during the model’s first year, and is in good playing order. It has had some repairs – it is 62 years old, after all – including some cleated top cracks and over-sprayed finish. The tuners have been replaced with new vintage-style models, and work well. As is typical, the pickguard is lifting a bit. Under the bridge, a sub-plate has been added to the bridge plate due to normal wear. The top is spruce, the back, sides and neck are mahogany, and the fingerboard and bridge are rosewood. The fingerboard is bound and has dual-parallellogram position markers, as an ‘upgrade’ from more basic models like th J-45.

❌ SOLD ❌  Gibson J-45 Steel String Sunburst with deArmond Pickup, 1970

The Gibson J-45 made its name as a workhorse guitar not long after its introduction in 1942, and they have been used by working musicians in countless gigs. Sometimes the gig needs more volume, and at some points adding a deArmond soundhole pickup was the way to go.

❌ SOLD ❌  Gibson J-45 Sunburst Steel String Guitar, 1952

The Gibson J-45 has been a guitarist’s choice almost since its introduction. Though its tonal representation isn’t always the most harmonically complete, it has a warm, enveloping sound that works extremely well accompanying a singer.
