Gibson / J45 Mahogany / 2015 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
In 1942, the first year of the WW2 Banner headstock Gibsons, a lot of their guitars had Mahogany tops because of the scarcity of Spruce. So in 2015 Gibson Custom Shop decided to revive this particular spec of J45 and produce a J45 Mahogany in very limited numbers. As a nod to the history of the guitar it has a Banner headstock logo and open back strip tuners. It still has the hallmark classic J45 tone, but with a deeper, warmer tone – what you lose in sparkling trebles, you gain in a rich bass. Also the look is different, the tobacco burst is altogether darker and moodier, a really classy looking guitar. Plus there’s Gibson Custom Shop quality everywhere you look – the way it’s been put together, the way it feels, and the way it plays, a really great sounding guitar. It’s in good condition, with several surface nicks and dings on the top. It has an active pickup fitted with volume and tone controls mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s 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.
