Body: Spruce top with mahogany body

Neck: Mahogany neck with a “C” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays, FON dates to 1953

Pickups/Hardware: Original hardware except for the tuner buttons

Cosmetic Condition: This Gibson is absolutely loaded with great character! The top has scratches and dings throughout as well has some hefty play wear around the sound hole. The sides have a nice handful of dings and the back has a handful of buckle rash and scratching. The neck has a couple patches of hefty finish / play wear and the headstock is doing well with some expected age and wear. This J-45 is one sweet strummer.

Playability: Plays well with medium action. The guitar would benefit from a neck reset for optimum playability and adjustability. The frets are small with play wear.

Modifications/Repairs: The tuning peg buttons have been replaced.
