1943 Gibson Banner Headstock J-45
This is a mahogany topped example of the Banner headstock J-45. Many times we find these war period guitars from Gibson with no FON number whatsoever, and this is one of them. In phenomenal condition, is it all original and has a presence that is extremely captivating. These "all mahogany" guitars are actually in more abundance than the spruce topped ones by my experience and provide the player with a unique sound experience. Woody yet crisp and dry with a very immediate attack with a quicker die back they are defined and clear. They record really well a they overtones and backtones are more restrained which at many times can be a good thing. This guitar has all the classic hallmarks of it's model with tapered headstock, simple bindings and soundhole ring.
