1950's J-45 Antiquity
A Limited Edition 1950s vibe J-45
$3,149
This April Limited Edition 1950s J-45 Antiquity pulls inspiration from early vintage J-45's. Starting with the gold Gibson block decal and Grover strap cream-button tuners, we add custom touches such as antiqued binding and Gibson's own VOS finish, to make it look and feel like a real vintage instrument. The slim tapered mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard are easy to play and offer a 1.725"-wide bone nut with matching bone saddle in the rosewood bridge. Dressed in our custom Sunset Burst top finish and equipped with an LR Baggs VTC pickup for easy plug and play! Ships with a Certificate of Authenticity. Available in April 2016.
