Cosmetic Condition: This '64 Gibson J-45 is a road-worn song-machine! The sunburst top looks rugged and rad with tons of gorgeous checking lines and some visible edgewear on the binding. There are somre dents and scratches on the bass-side bout as well. The sides have many dents and scratches and are covered in checking lines. The back of the body has some of the finish removed and buckle rash. The neck has checking lines throughout it but is in good condition. The fretboard has many divots on the early frets. The headstock has heavy edgewear and some numbers and dates etched into the back of it. This '64 J-45 has a lot of history, but its begging for more!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The bridge and bridgeplate have been replaced (the original is in the case). The saddle and pickguard have been replaced. The humidity cracks have been repaired. The guitar has had the braces reglues and it has been refretted. The tuner grommets are missing.
