1948 Gibson J-45 Sunburst

A classic and early example of the sunburst J-45 that has been played a lot and has a great tonal edge.  Beautiful and ruddy sunburst finish with solid mahogany rims and back with a solid sitka spruce top, brazilian rosewood board and bridge and that great, thumpy and woody Gibson tone.  This guitar has several long cracks to the top that have all been healed and probably contribute to its loose and open voice.  It wants nothing to go on stage and is a real delight to play and hold.
