About the Gibson J-45 1958

This J-45 originates from Gibsons golden era, guitars of Gibson manufactured between 1950 and 1960 are seen by most as the best the company has ever build. What is particularly  special about this guitar is that it probably started its life as a ‘lefty’. One of the previous owners choose to convert the guitar to a right-handed guitar. The location of the pickguard has remained the same whilst the nut and the bridge have been converted.

Due to the guitars spruce top and mahony side and back it has a recognizable ‘full’ and warm sound. The firm C-shaped neck with rosewood fingerboard gives you a solid grip when you are performing and the build-in pickup make it an ideal guitar for any performance.

Its beautiful sunburst finish has aged magnificently throughout the years. Its beautiful sunburst finish has aged magnificently throughout the years. The guitar does have two characteristic cracks in the top, near the soundhole, due to shrinkage of the pickguard. The tuners are original and stay in tune. The tuners are original and stay in tune.

By making use of the FON (Factory Order Number) we have been able to date this J-45. This proved to be quite a challenge because the J-45 was issued without a label. These models were only stamped with ‘J-45 ADJ. BRIDGE’ on the center strip. The J-45 comes in a Lifton case that matches the original cases that match these guitars.
