2015 Gibson J45 Mahogany – £2499

NEW ARRIVAL  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.
