AMAZING SOUND... Very much like a train coming. Strong, resonant, and loud.Stone cold original and clean banner J-45! In our opinion, banner J-45s are the next hot thing in the vintage guitar world and a very good investment. Appreciation continues to grow for the war time "Only a Gibson Is Good Enough" guitars lore gains more and more steam. These guitars were made completely by hand by women in Kalamazoo, Michigan while the men from the factory fought in World War 2! Craftsmanship, originality, materials, minimal play wear, history, investability, sound, playability... this instrument has it ALL. At times these very old guitars that were not at the top of the manufacture line when produced show signs of abuse and very heavy play wear. This instrument is not one of those as it is 100 percent repair free and one of the very best overall examples you will find! Maple back and sides, Adirondack spruce top. Get your hands on a 71 year old piece of living American history that will surely make music and bring joy for a few more generations! There's a reason Gibson silk screened "Only a Gibson is Good Enough" on these guitars seven decades ago. Serious players believed it then and they believe it now! 9500 dollars.
