Anyone out there really familiar with the vintage Gibson 194x J-45? I stubbled across one at a small local guitar repair shop and really liked the tone and playability. The only thing is it had a huge crack across both shoulders and neck which the luthier seemed to repair well. It obviously doesn't affect the tone or playability - just looks really ugly! I liked it so much I ask him if he'd sell it and he said he's sell it for $800. I noticed these guitars sell for $2,000 to over $8,000 in good condition. Although this guitar had some "major" repair does that seems like a reasonable price? For the tone and playability alone you would pay ALOT more than that for any new Martin, Taylor, etc. I was hoping to get some advice from someone who is familiar with these guitars before making a decision. Thanks for your help!
