Part of a limited run of “Early” edition J-45s, this line was the precursor to the modern day “True Vintage” series. This 1998 model comes with all the original case candy. It features a AA sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides, a comfortable “C” shaped neck with a slab rosewood fingerboard, and a vintage style “Sunburst” finish. This guitar has some moderate weather checking which adds to the vintage vibe, and is in excellent condition. A great choice for anyone looking for a Gibson flattop with the look and feel of a vintage original.
