1943-45 Gibson Banner J-45 no FON #
What an immaculate instrument.......crack free war period Banner J-45 with a 4 piece spruce top. This guitar was here about 8 years ago and has come back to us for it's second go 'round. And happy are we. There was a time when we had 5 or 6 Banner Gibsons in the gallery at one time, but no more. If we have one I'm lucky and if I have 2.....I'm more lucky. This one is possibly the best sounding banner that I've owned and is in almost unplayed condition. Beautiful burst finish, original tuners, pickguard and bridge and a one piece backboard......not often seen. It's had a bridgeplate replacement as the old one failed finally and so that was done as a matter of maintenance and the bridge has a healed crack that is completely stable. Otherwise, it's almost untouched and makes the most amazing sound, tremendously crisp and powerful . Work was done by Graham Parker, so you know it's impeccable. Come have a go !!!
