Used 2016 Gibson LEGEND Series 1942 J-45

SKU 12276012
This gorgeous J-45 is a special one. Built in 2016 it is number 16 from a limited run of 34 Legend Series J-45 guitars made in the Gibson Custom shop that year. These Legend Series J-45 guitars are meticulous reproductions of a special J-45 from the first year of J-45 production. Some key elements contributing to the tonal grandeur of this instrument include: Torrified Adirondack Top, Thin Nitro Finish and Premium Honduran Mahogany Back & Sides. The neck on this guitar is a war-time exact replica, being large and round, carved from a beautiful single piece of premium Honduran Mahogany. Adding extra resonance and beauty to the guitar is a Madagascar Rosewood fingerboard and bridge with Mother of Pearl dot inlays. To tie this vintage look together they ordained this guitar with a tasteful Vintage Sunburst and classic Firestripe teardrop pick-guard. Another fine addition are the tuners that were made custom by Kluson for this limited run. The nut is 1.75" and the scale is 24-3/4". This is one of the best sounding and feeling J-45 guitars that have ever rolled through the shop. It has a quality vintage vibe and the tone is lush, warm and large.
Bridge pins were replaced with Black Tusq pins. Comes with a deluxe TKL case. The condition is excellent with only minor signs of gentle use, such as light pinky cuticle wear on the guard and very light finish wear typical of a carefully handled instrument. The frets are at the beginning of their life with little to no visible fret-wear.

This instrument is Pre-Owned, and is sold without a warranty.
