2014 Gibson J-45 True Vintage

Gibson’s J-45 True Vintage features a red spruce top with 1940’s style scalloped braces and hide glue construction. The guitar is very lightly built, and features a thin nitrocellulose sunburst lacquer finish that’s hand rubbed to a low-lustre vintage sheen. Gibson ‘Banner’ headstock logo, closed-back Kluson Deluxe tuners, bone nut and saddle, and small tortoise-style pickguard. The neck has a rounded 1950’s shape and a nut width of 1-11/16”.

A very fine sounding Gibson J-45 with classic early post-war tone. Warm, a little bit thumpy but also a little bit bright, and all-around very sweet, the J-45 TV does what we all want our Gibsons to do. It’s right at home strumming songs and playing back-up to your voice, or throw some single-note runs at it and surprise your Martin-playing friends with its fullness and punch.

In near-new condition, this guitar might have a small dent on it somewhere. Not sure where, but there’s got to be one. It’s otherwise perfect, and has just been carefully set-up here at Folkway.

With original True Vintage Brown/Pink hardshell case.
