Gibson J-45 1957 – a cool Roundshoulder Vintage Dreadnought. A fabulous player with a great vintage sound!
Bob Dylan, John Hiatt, Brad Paisley … the list of the famous players is very long.
This Gibson J-45 1957 is a real gem with character in appearance and especially in sound. Here you get the ultimate vintage sound.
We personally like the sound of this Gibson because it has a very cool and dry vintage tone. It is very open and responsive. The sound is deep and the woods resonate just great. The basses have a lovely growling and it is the perfect guitar for recording, stage or personal use at home.
It plays perfectly and is wonderfully adjusted. Low action, straight neck and well preserved frets.
As you can see in the pictures the guitar has a very nice vintage look. It is a guitar which has been played and nicely aged. It is in good condition with just the right amount of wear from play and use. A pickguard crack has been repaired and a pickup system has been removed (holes filled as visible in the pictures). It has newer vintage style tuners and the adjustable bridge has been converted to a bridge with bone saddle.
This Gibson J-45 comes with a newer case.
