For Sale: Gibson 1943 banner Head J45 All Maple war time J45. This guitar is a pure tone machine from the gone by golden era of Gibson. This is a maple back and side’s guitar with the spruce top, KILLER tone on this one. She has been picked and ridden hard but the more you beat it the more it wants to respond. Very articulate attack and tone. Several cracks were repaired before I bought it and these were all deemed solid and good to go by Mirabella Guitar Restorations in NY. Since then we have taken the belly behind the bridge, replaced the bridge, original in case. Otherwise she is solid and ready and an unbelievable recording guitar too. I have decided to keep my 59’ J200 and sell this one even though it may break my heart. Comes with a very very old hard shell case in ex condition...not sure if it is original or not. Asking a reasonable $7500
