Gibson / J45 Legend Limited Madagascar Sunburst 2008 / 1942 / Guitar

The Gibson J45 Legend was destined for the Japanese market and it is one of the finest reproductions of a pre-war J45 that Gibson has released. Resembling an authentic 1940s J45, these guitars are lightweight and characterized by the dry pre-war sound and volume. This J45 Legend is part of a very limited series of only five guitars that feature a Madagascar rosewood back and sides instead of the regular Honduran mahogany. The guitar also has an Adirondack spruce top with Adirondack braces, and is constructed entirely with hide glue. The mahogany neck has a robust Large C profile and is fitted with a Madagascar rosewood fingerboard. Further details such as a maple binding and rosette, vintage replica tuners and a firestripe pickguard complete the whole. The extremely thin McFadden nitrocellulose lacquer ensures that the wood can resonate freely. This Gibson J45 Legend from 2008 is in very good condition. The guitar has light playwear and some dings on the top and body, including a crack in the body near the bridge pin. The guitar is otherwise very clean and comes in a hardshell case. Consignment.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205
