This 2019 Gibson J-45 Walnut M (Modern) is in excellent cosmetic condition showing very minimal signs of play wear throughout including one tiny ding on the front treble side of the body (see photos). The neck profile is that of a chunky C shape with a 1 11/16" nut width and feels fantastic in hand. The fret wire on this guitar shows virtually no signs of play wear and the frets have tons of life left in them. This guitar plays exceptional up and down the fingerboard. The saddle height and neck angle are optimal and this guitar has a very flat top. This Gibson J-45 has a very crisp yet dry and articulate tone with plenty of volume and complexity. The slightly thinner body size makes this guitar exceptionally comfortable to sit and pick and the treble side cutaway makes access to the upper register a breeze. The LR Baggs pickup system in this instrument sounds extremely good plugged in and accessing the volume control located in the soundhole is very easy.
This J-45 is perfectly suited for live performance or studio use and really makes a great songwriting companion. The guitar is housed in its original brown Gibson branded hard shell case that is perfect for travel. If you're after a fine sounding and playing flattop with a very attractive finish, then this Gibson J-45 is a great choice. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
