A 2016 J-45 Standard with an awesome tone! I bought this only 3 months ago and it's in excellent condition. Just recently had a setup and now has perfect intonation and fast, low action. The tone on this is dark and dry and very Gibson-y, which is why I bought it in the first place. The only reason I'm selling is because I bought a vintage J-45 and can't afford to keep both around--otherwise I wouldn't let this guitar go. This J-45 came without a pickguard, so I installed a firestripe pickguard from Terrapin Guitars. In the interests of full disclosure, I want to detail the very minor cosmetic issues that are only noticeable on close inspection:
There is some slight finish rippling on one side of the pickguard, just under the top strings, where the stock pickguard would have originally been glued. A small indent (about 1/4 inch long) that does not break the finish, just under where your picking arm would sit.A small indent and three pick scratches near the pickguard that I believe could buff out. Also minor scratches to the finish on back that will likely buff out. You have to look closely for them with light hitting the back in the right way. Just FYI that this is what keeps the guitar from being mint, but it truly is in excellent condition and the playability is incredible.
Comes with original Gibson hardshell case pictured.
