This is a very cool Gibson J-45 “Banner” from 1944 … it has this killer sound from the good old time … all you need for a magical sound experience!

The guitar belonged to a musician called “The Texas Drifter”. We have linked a recording down below and a newspaper clipping in the pictures.

Banner Gibson J-45 are among the most sought after vintage guitars. During war time Gibson produced only a few instruments and took great care in building each instrument.
This one is a rare full mahogany guitar (top, back and sides). It has a very nice and chunky maple neck and a thin coat of this stunning sunburst finish. The finish is 100% original.

This Gibson is very resonant, has a balanced sound with impressive basses, present mids and a characteristic trebles. The sound is deep and the guitar vibrates perfectly. It has this charming sound you can only find on a well played and beautifully matured vintage guitar.

It is all original. Only the tuners are vintage style Kluson replacements. There was an old pickup mounted, which has been removed and it has some old crack repairs too. The guitar has received a neck reset and plays very nice.
The FON reads 2482 (hard to read), which makes it to a 1944 model.

The guitar comes with the original case.
