Body: Spruce top with mahogany back and sides

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

Pickups/Hardware: Original hardware

Cosmetic Condition: The body on this Gibson is loaded with character in the form of some light, nice checking lines, dings and scratches throughout the finish. The top has some play wear around the neck and soundhole as well as additional wear. The sides and back continue this aesthetic with some finish hazing and buckle rash on the back. The neck is in great shape for the age with only minor dings and checking and the headstock is in really good shape with some light edge wear. The J-45 is bursting with vintage vibe!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The neck has had a reset and a bone saddle has been installed.
