What a sound …. this Gibson is simply stunningly beautiful in sound!!!! An original Gibson J-45 from 1963. With the serial number 120993 and the other characteristics (43 mm nut width, pickguard …) date it to 1963.
This model (J-45) from Gibson has absolute cult character. During this time Gibson used guitars of very high quality using the highest quality materials. The top is made of the finest spruce. Back and sides made of high quality mahogany.
Such an unbelievable vintage sound can only be achieved with an original and naturally aged vintage roundshoulder Gibson. Deep basses and a tone to fall in love with. The guitar has a great dynamic paired with a tonal mildness – quite different from the sharp tone of the newer guitars.
This guitar sounds indescribably great, so it’s hard to find the right words. But connoisseurs and insiders can probably imagine what is meant.
The guitar is light as a feather and the woods swing great and produce this unique sound.
The guitar is in good and original condition for its age. It only shows very light playwear and no cracks. The bridge has been exchanged to a bone saddle one – this happened to many guitars, because the adjustable bridge is simply a tone killer. The tuners also seems to be replaced and the headstock overlay has been redone.
The neck is straight, the frets are in good shape, the action is low (guitar surely had a neck reset) – the guitar is ready to be played and enjoyed.
