Gibson / J45 / 1974 / Sunburst / Guitar
This J45 is a classic example of the 'workhorse' guitar. A square shouldered dreadnought in a beautiful tobacco sunburst finish with a Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. This gives the guitar a very big sound, great bass response with plenty of sustain, but also the definition to handle the most delicate playing styles. It has just the right amount of playwear for a 38 year old guitar, just a few dings and scrapes, if it hadn't been played this much it wouldn't sound so good. The neck feels very comfortable to play and the action is just right. The guitar has two professionally repaired cracks - one next to the scratchplate, the other along the back - both are structurally sound. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
