1951 Gibson J 45 sunburst

1951 Gibson J-45 Sunburst (sold)

A classic and early example of the sunburst J-45 that has a great tonal edge.  Beautiful and ruddy sunburst finish with solid mahogany rims and back with a solid sitka spruce top, rosewood board and bridge and that great, thumpy and woody Gibson tone.  This guitar has a secured center seam, front and back but is otherwise crack free.   It wants nothing to go on stage and is a real delight to play and hold.
