1967 Gibson B45-12

One of the most iconic 12 string models of all time, the B45-12 was the guitar of choice for so many players – from Leo Kottke and Gordon Lightfoot to Keith Richards, and Jimi Page. They are great sounding guitars with the best in vintage 12 string tone and looks.

This 1967 B45-12 is a great playing guitar, thanks in part to its drop-in saddle conversion and excellent neck angle. It’s had a couple of top cracks repaired here at Folkway, and is set-up well with easy-playing low action. Original frets show wear in the first position but play well. The nut and tuners are original and unmodified. It’s stage-ready with a Highlander undersaddle pickup, too.

Spruce top with mahogany back and sides, natural finish, white bindings. Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, pearloid fingerboard dots and pearl triangles in the headstock. 2” nut width, 24.75” scale.

With original chipboard case
