A VERY DESIRABLE AND EXCELLENT PLAYING GUITAR …
1958 GIBSON J-45 IN CLASSIC SUNBURST FINISH
We take great pride in being able to offer some of the finest guitars in the land, and this one is one of the top.
The J-45 is undoubtedly Gibson's most popular acoustic guitar of all-time, yet for many years they were never an expensive or fancy guitar. But they have always produced a tone that is very warm and fat, making them highly desired among professional artists and amateur pickers alike. The playability of a J-45 is excellent, too. And because the J-45 has been in production for so long, they are much easier to find than most any other Gibson flattop models. Bottom line, if you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one acoustic guitar, you’d mostly likely pick a1950s Gibson J-45 … at least we would!
That said, here’s an absolutely gorgeous 1958 Gibson J-45 in EXCELLENT condition. This is one of those guitars that’s been sitting in my living room since we purchased it, and it’s going to be very difficult to let this one go to our shipping company. It plays and sounds tremendous. There’s no other words for it. You really have to hear it and play it to truly understand what we’re talking about.
Some people prefer Martins – and don’t get me wrong, some Martins are incredible guitars. But this J-45 is the reason the model is Gibson’s best-selling guitar EVER!
This particular example has had two small repaired cracks on the top, and the upper frets may need a bit of attention as there is a little fret buzz on the G string past the 12th fret, but we don’t think it’s anything major. The saddle is a newer saddle, so there is plenty of saddle there for any adjustments. And it also comes with a non-original black hardshell case with gray interior.
If you don’t have a Gibson J-45 in your collection or arsenal of guitars, all we can tell you is that you don’t know what you’re missing. This guitar is a absolute cannon, and we don’t think it’s going to last long. These J-45s are one of the few guitars that keep going up in value year after year after year, so why not get one while you can without having to take out a second mortgage?
