I really love old Gibson acoustics.
Anybody else love old J-45's?
could you pm me how you came across that piece?
Any gtr that has been played that much is alright with me! 'Specially a pre-'55 Gbsn flat top gtr!
BEAUTIFUL guitar, thanks for sharing!
congrats on the new guitar!
...my J50 was built round 1950, so I guess it's similar to yours...lovely guitar
Love old Gibson acoustics! Here's my '57 J-45. Sounds amazing. Next guitar will be a pre-'55.
Yup sure do but I do gotta preference for Southerner Jumbos.
i LOVE those slopes from pre-65
my absolute favorite vintage acoustic guitars EVER.
the only modern ones that compare are the Bourgeouis SLope D.
Me too! And yours is a beauty - congratulations! I love that finish crazing!
Most definitely. Love those slope shoulders! Here's my 1960 J-45. Sounds great even given the adjustable bridge.
It's really a great guitar. I took a long time trying to find the right one.
Gibson slope shoulders are by far my favorite acoustic. This one looks KILLER! I'm rockin' a Woody Guthrie SJ these days but would love to get my hands on a vintage J-45. Someday...
Congrats! I stumbled onto my '63 J-50adj last year and haven't been able to put it down since.
Man, the pics in this thread are making me jealous! I have serious GAS for a vintage Gibson acoustic. Congrats on your new-to-you J-45!
Love the old Gibsons. When I had my guitar made, I had it modeled after a late 30s Gibson Advanced Jumbo. It's the one musical instrument I have that's truly a "keeper."
Congrats on the new guitar!
