Price : US $3,700
Iíve owned many old Gibson J-45ís and J-50ís. This 1959 J-45, (serial number S-2754-33), ranks right up there as one of the best looking, nicest sounding of the bunch. Some dings and light play wear but nothing major. It has the very attractive late 50ís 3 tone sunburst (Cremona brown,/red brown/amber).
The tuners are correct, replacement Kluson style. The bridge currently has a rosewood insert with a bone saddle. It works well, intonation is excellent. The rosewood insert is not glued in and the ''adjusting style'' saddle (included) can be re-installed if so desired. There is a repaired pickguard crack by the soundhole, which is tight and not an issue. Frets are in excellent condition. Neck is excellent with no humps or issues. Good neck angle, no need of a neck rest. The action is currently 3/32'', 2/32'' at the 12 fret. No loose braces.
The top has a nice subtle arch to it, no sinking or bellying. This is a really solid, excellent sounding guitar that came from a good home. Comes with a nice, older hardshell case. I donít know if it is the original. Shipping is $45 US. Payment by Paypal, money order or bank check. Please email questions or further picture requests.
